Eastern Cape DA councillor Stanford Slabbert has been suspended following a racist email he circulated reported The New Age newspaper.

The email  slammed the ruling party, claiming the ANC rule has done nothing but produce 'dumb idiots who wait for handouts', the email went on to say President Jacob Zuma had more wives than brain cells.

The email said Zuma had led a country where a quarter of schoolgirls were HIV-positive because South Africans had "spread the disease more than anyone else in the world".

Athol Trollip, DA’s provincial leader, confirmed Slabbert's suspensions for the ‘very offensive and racist’ email which contravened the DA constitution.

A disciplinary hearing would take place in July.
