COSATU Limpopo opens a case of racism against the Speaker of Modimole/Mookgophong Municipality with the South African Human Rights Commission

The Congress of South African Trade Unions in Limpopo has opened a case of racism against Mr Johannes Abrie, the Speaker of Modimolle/Mookgophong Municipality, with the South African Human Rights Commission.

Mr Johannes Abrie is alleged to have used the K-word against a black employee at the municipality (Mr Thabo Raymond Maake) and accused them of being "thieves who are like their father Zuma". This incident exposes the racist character and personality of Mr Johannes Abrie against black workers and communities of Modimolle/Mookgophong at large. We are also making a call to all other workers in the same municipality, workers at every workplace and ordinary community members to come forward and report cases of racism.

It is important to note that the racism victim, Mr Maake, has opened a crimen injuria case against Mr Johannes Abrie with the Modimolle SAPS and the case number is 150/11/2016.

We are confident and looking forward to the South African Human Rights Commission going to the bottom of the case and we will further comment once the findings are out.
