KZN guesthouse owner: Bible says black people should be servants

Durban – Sodwana Bay guesthouse owner Andre Slade has refused to back down from his comments about black people and that the Bible says people of different races must be segregated.

Slade was speaking after KwaZulu-Natal Tourism MEC Sihle Zikalala opened a case of hate speech, illegal operation and tax evasion against the guesthouse owner, Eyewitness News reported.

The guesthouse owner said he believed that the system of apartheid was based on the laws of Christianity and that “just like apricot and peach, we’re not the same”.

Slade made headlines last week after an e-mail he sent to a would-be visitor to his Sodwana Bay Guest House in northern KwaZulu-Natal, went viral. The e-mail read, “Hi. We do not accommodate blacks or government officials any longer.”

Slade believes that the Bible states that black people should be servants and that white and black people do not have the same blood, skin or hair and that there are about 300 differences between the two races.

“You are classified in the Bible as an animal, you are not homosapien,” he told Vuma FM presenter Jacinta Ngobese last week.

A crowd of 2 000 ANC Youth League members and supporters protested outside the guesthouse, the Times Live had reported.
