Mbalula says Facebook ranter's punishment should be lesson for other racists

An SAHRC order that Capetonian Matthew Theunissen must carry out sport community service following his racist rants should serve as a lesson for others, Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula said today.

Mbalula said in a statement that the restorative measures the commission has recommended should serve as a teaching moment to racist people who believe some sporting codes are an exclusive right of one race against the other.

Last week, the SA Human Rights Commission announced that a settlement agreement had been reached with Theunissen – who had vented on Facebook about transformation in sport – whereby he will do community service for sports development in a disadvantaged part of Cape Town.
