“South Africa’s Commonwealth Games team too white”

Chairperson of the parliamentary oversight committee on sport and recreation, Butana Komphela, has been criticized for saying that South Africa’s Commonwealth Games team looked more European than South African.

Komphela told the committee that his comments were not his view alone but the view of the South African high commissioner to India, where the games were held, Harris Mbulelo Majeke.

Minority Front’s Amichand Rajbansi says the African National Congress must criticize the lack of sports and sporting facilities in schools instead of making racial comments.

The FW de Klerk Foundation said that if correctly quoted, Majeke’s comments were offensive.

Manase Makwela, who is Sports department spokesperson, says more work needs to be done at development level.
