SAHRC Probed Over 500 Racism Cases

The SAHRC investigated over 500 racism-related cases in 2013

Over 500 racism-related cases have been reported to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in the past year.

SAHRC chairperson of the hearings into transformation at universities in South Africa, Lawrence Mushwana, notes that the complaints were not only in universities, adding that, “In the 2013/2014 financial year, 45 percent of the SAHRC's complaints were race-related and dealt with the right to equality.”

Panel commissioner, Lindiwe Mokate, says black students are targeted in most of the cases, further noting that, “There had been an increase in the 'k-word’ where there is not sufficient respect for each other among students."
