The unprovoked and racist attack on a farmworker near Krugersdorp last weekend, reported in this newspaper yesterday, should be condemned in the strongest terms.
Fourteen years into democracy it is shocking that we still have white farmers who disregard black lives.
Justice Mnisi sustained serious injuries after being attacked inside a house by the owner - for no apparent reason.
His boss, a white man, has rightfully entered the fray by condemning the attack, which he likened to the notorious Ku Klux Klan attacks in the US.
The police have promised to investigate the attack and bring the culprit to book.
We will monitor their progress.
