"A call to kill white people on the Pan Africanist Congress Facebook
page has sparked a frenzy of hate speech fanned by extremists of
various races, threatening violence against each other.
The demeaning and often violent comments were still on the page on
Friday despite promises by the party on Thursday that the page would be
removed and its administrator disciplined.
Racist invective, which in many cases amounted to hate speech, from
both sides were entertained by page administrator Anwar Adams, who
earlier refused to remove comments calling for whites to be killed,
saying it was free speech.
PAC spokesman Andiswa Majali said this week Adams could face
disciplinary steps and promised on Thursday that the party would remove
its Facebook page. He said Adams was a member of the party, but did not
have the party's blessing to create the page. "
