The DA and its coalition partners blocked a debate yesterday on a racially divisive notice which called for “non-whites” to use a separate toilet, forcing the ANC to turn to the police to probe the matter.
Senior Bay ANC leaders then opened a case of crimen injuria against DA Ward 40 (Kuyga) councillor Jason Grobbelaar at the Kabega Park police station.
The ANC believes Grobbelaar is behind the mysterious notice that was pasted on the front door of the Kuyga Community Hall, where his office is. However, he denies it. The DA’s chief whip, Werner Senekal, said his office was investigating the matter and acting city boss Johann Mettler was also probing the incident.
The ANC delegation was led by councillors Litho Suka, Bicks Ndoni and Andile Lungisa.
The notice, which no one has claimed, read: “Down stairs tiolets for non-whites or if you black wearing EPWP overall – by order councillor office.”
