Johannesburg - The South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD) has laid criminal charges against ousted Wits Student Representative Council (SRC) president Mcebo Dlamini.
The SAJBD said it had laid the charges against Dlamini on Monday for racist and defamatory comments made against the South African Jewish community last week.
“Specifically, Dlamini stated regarding the Jewish community: ‘They are devils. They are good for nothing. They are hypocritical, just like (Wits University vice-chancellor) Adam Habib. They are uncircumcised in heart’.”
The comments were made during a live interview on PowerFM last Tuesday.
“Dlamini’s comments are the latest in a series of offensive public statements that he made about South African Jews over the past nine months,” the statement said.
