The DA submitted a complaint to the Equality Court on Wednesday against ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule for his comments about white foreigners last week.

The party has interpreted his words as hateful. DA Free State legislature member Roy Jankielsohn said in a statement he had submitted his affidavit at the Equality Court in Bloemfontein with a request that the court look at instructing Ace Magashule and the ANC “to individually or jointly call a press conference in which they apologise unconditionally for the damage caused by branding white South African citizens as being foreigners who should be subjected to violence”.

He said that neither ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa nor the ANC itself, which had defined itself as non-racial in terms of the Freedom Charter, had made any statements condemning these racist comments.
