ANC suspends Visvin Reddy

2014-05-03 20:00

Johannesburg - 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 commentators… 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.

At the time, Reddy told The Daily News that he stood by his comment and the views he expressed were not the African National Congress's.

On Saturday Zikalala said the ANC believed in non-racialism.

"We do not associate ourselves with any sentiments which seek to divide our members on the basis of race, sex, colour or creed. The ANC is for everyone."

Zikalala said a disciplinary hearing for Reddy would follow in "due process".
