In his responding affidavit, Fivelman denied the allegations against him: "My religious faith and background are such that I am extremely sensitive towards racial slurs and insults. I repeat, I have never used them."
According to his version, Macala was the one who was abusive towards him.
He told the court that Macala shouted at him, referring to him as a "f****** rich white man", and pointed the middle finger at him.
In her judgment on Friday, magistrate Xoliswa Ndoyana ordered Fivelman to write an apology to Macala, within 21 days of her judgment, wherein he admits using the derogatory words to Macala.
"He must detract the words while admitting that these words were harmful, hurtful, and apologise unconditionally for their usage," reads Ndoyana's judgment.
Macala was, however, unsuccessful in requesting that Fivelman pay her legal costs. The court ordered that both parties pay their own legal costs.
The court also turned down her request to be awarded damages.
