Velaphi Khumalo went on a verbal rant against white people two years ago and has now had to own up to his actions.

Khumalo was found guilty of hate speech by the Equality Court after saying on social media that South Africa should be cleansed of white people. He referred to doing so in the way Hitler treated the Jews.

Judge Roland Sutherland ruled that Khumalo must write a public apology to all South Africans.
