DA Suspends Renaldo Gouws After Racial Speech Video Has Been Found to Be Genuine

DA Suspends Renaldo Gouws After Racial Speech Video Has Found to Be Genuine. DA’s Member of Parliament Renaldo Gouws is topping trends on a number of social media platforms. This comes after a video of him, spewing racist remarks made its way to Twitter and the actions taken against him.

In the video, Gouws is heard saying: “Alright so there’s a couple of things I want to say. Kill the f**ing k*ffirs, kill all the f*ing n*ggers. That’s all I gotta f*ing say. Kill all the k*ffirs! Kill all the f*ing n*ggers!

Gows was then called to account, but claimed that the video was posted 16 years ago, when he didn’t know any better. He said was at the time when then President Zuma and then Youth Leader, Julius Malema were singing songs about killing people based on their race.

Before this and before these snippets were used publicly against me, I posted a lengthy Facebook post from 2013 in which I apologized for how I delivered my message in my videos (angry, hostile, confrontational and crass). I refute any claims of racism or being a racist. I can however see how my message was distorted in the way it was delivered by me and I take full responsibility for the actions of my younger and immature self. For that, I apologize unreservedly,” he said.

After some investigations, Gouws has now been suspended with immediate effect. The former Nelson Mandela Bay Councillor faces disciplinary charges at the party’s federal legal commission.

The party has found the video to be genuine, and now Gouws has to face the music. On top of being suspended, he also faces disciplinary charges before the Party’s Federal Legal Commission.
