The ANC said it would lay a criminal complaint against Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr following “racist” comments that he made on social media about Democratic Alliance MP Phumzile van Damme and South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark Zindzi Mandela. The tweet has been met with much anger, with some calling it reckless. Hofmeyr made death threats against Van Damme and Mandela. In a statement, the ANC described Hofmeyr’s comments as “racist” and “inhumane”. The ANC said it remained resolute in its campaign to build a non-racial society.
