Port Elizabeth - The Equality Court will hear the South African Human Rights Commission’s hate speech case against Angelo Agrizzi in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday, the commission said in a statement on Wednesday. 

This application by the commission follows Agrizzi’s testimony at the Zondo State Capture Commission of Inquiry in which he admitted to using racial slurs.

In the audio clip played at the Inquiry, Mr Agrizzi is heard using the K-word numerous times while laughing with the people with whom he was having a conversation. 

The case will start at 8.30am in Court 15, the statement said.
