Vivienne Basson was fired from her job on Tuesday after posting racist remarks on her Facebook account.

The 43-year-old, who worked as a project manager for Ericsson South Africa, put up a status saying: “Effing k***** taxi. And once again I vote for the death penalty. These savages don’t deserve to live. But more importantly Daniel is alive and I am alive. They can rot in hell.”

Ericsson South Africa M.D Magnus Mchunguzi told SABC news that Basson had ‘breached their business ethics’.

“I do apologise for my unnecessary and hurtful remarks I have made on this public forum. My intention was not to be insensitive nor derogatory,” Basson later wrote.
