The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday suspended its Chatsworth branch chairman Visvin Reddy following his remarks on Facebook that Indians who complain about the ANC government should go back to India.
“His recent remarks on a public platform… the party views as out of line with the position of the organisation,” said provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala in a statement.
On his Facebook page Reddy posted: “To you anti ANC commentatorsâ€¦ wait until 8 May... The ANC will still rule this country. You whiners should leave… Go to India and you will see what a good life we have here. Continue with your garbage and marginalise yourself further. Don’t blame the ANC, blame yourself. You have not yet embraced democracy. Only a foolish Indian in SA will not engage the majority constructively.”
The country’s general elections will take place on 7 May.
