The Nelson Mandela Foundation says it is rattled that AfriForum is planning to appeal the Equality Court judgement on the apartheid flag.

The court ruled last month that the gratuitous display of the flag constituted hate speech.

The foundation and AfriForum’s Ernst Roets are facing off in the South Gauteng High Court today, following a contempt of court application against Roets for tweeting an image of the flag hours after the ruling.

The foundation’s Sello Hatang says they will continue to defend the rights of South Africans
