Racism – dismissal letter
DEMAND FOR THE IMMEDIATE DISMISSAL OF MR ESETHU HASANE
By means of this letter we demand the immediate dismissal of Mr Esethu Hasane, Media and Communication Manager at the Department of Sport and Recreation, for his anti-white racist statement on social media. Mr Hasane made the following comment on both his Twitter and Facebook accounts:
Only Western Cape still has dry dams. Please God, we have black people there, choose another way of punishing white people.
Mr Hasane’s statement again confirms that anti-white racism is rife in your department. His statement does not come as a surprise, as it has already become evident that your Department’s pressure on sport federations to implement rigid racial quotas is not a sincere effort to develop athletes from all communities, but rather a racist campaign to reduce the number of white sportsmen and women in teams. You are trying to hide your Department and Government’s failure to establish sport in township and rural schools by targeting white people.
Furthermore, we demand that you and your Department publicly denounce Mr Hasane’s racist statement and to distances yourselves therefrom without delay.
