Cape Town - People like Matthew Theunissen have no place in our society and must be isolated as they take us backwards reminding us of our painful past, Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula has said.
Mbalula was responding to 26-year-old Theunissen’s racist post on Facebook earlier this week which has sparked an outcry on social media.
In reaction to Mbalula’s “ban” on three sporting codes hosting international tournaments due to lack of transformation, Theunissen on Monday posted on Facebook: “So no more sporting events for South Africa… I've never been more proud to say that our government are a bunch of k*****s… yes I said it so go f***k yourselves you black f***ing c***ts (sic).”
In an interview with CapeTalk's John Maytham on Tuesday, the Noordhoek resident said he had posted the remarks out of anger and that he would regret it for the rest of his life.
He told Maytham he would contact the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in order to deal with the matter.
