JOHANNESBURG – The African National Congress has laid a criminal complaint of crimen injuria against Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr.
The move follows a tweet Hofmeyr posted last week, which was addressed to South African’s ambassador to Denmark Zinzi Mandela and the Democratic Alliance’s Phumzile van Damme.
The ANC’s Pule Mabe said: “Police have assured us that we’ll receive the case number in the next few hours. The ANC subscribes to the rule of law and we have a Constitution that protects life.”
In a statement released on Wednesday, the ANC described Hofmeyr’s comments as “racist” and “inhumane”.
