SABC journalist schools Valhalla community leader over mosque

19 April, 11:19 AM

Watch as SABC reporter Palesa Chubisi takes on Valhalla, Pretoria community leader Richard Botha over residents' opposition to the building of a mosque in the area.

Thousands of people signed a petition against the building of a mosque, citing concerns that establishing a Muslim place of worship in the area would result in acts of terror.

When asked if the protest was racially motivated, Botha said "if we become the same; if we're forced to all become the same, where is the diversity?"

Not backing down, Chubisi asked about the rights of Muslims in the community to practice their religion. 

Watch the video above for the full interaction.
