Tokyo Sexwale responds to racism accusations against Sepp Blatter

Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale has commented on a racism commotion raging in football.

He addressed a media briefing in Midrand, following statements made by Sepp Blatter.

The Fifa president said in a television interview this week that racial confrontations on the field could be settled by a handshake between the players concerned at the end of the game.

Sexwale was instrumental in organising the last year’s Fifa World Cup in South Africa and is currently a member of Fifa's Fair Play and Social Responsibility committee.

He believes Blatter's statements were misinterpreted.
