DA to look into a political training youth camp
25 February 2012
The Democratic Alliance says the Human Rights Commission should look into reports that a youth camp in Mpumalanga is training boys to hate blacks.
Mmusi Maimane the spokesperson says the training includes firearm handling and political programming designed to promote racial hatred.
The camp called Kommandokorps has trained over one-thousand-500 boys. The boys aged between 13 and 19 were told that blacks could not use their initiative and could not govern properly.
Maimane says the DA must ask the SAHRC to investigate whether the activities at the camp were legal.
