This comes after Theunissen posted a racist comment, lashing out at minister of sport and recreation Fikile Mbalula for suspending privileges of sports federations from bidding for international tournaments due to a lack of transformation.
Theunissen said: “So no more sporting events for South Africa.. I’ve never been more proud than to say our government are a bunch of k*****s,” and then lapsed into a string of obscenities.
“This idiot racist #MattTheunissen should be reported to SAHRC. No place for such comments in our democracy,” Maimane said on Twitter.
Mbalula also came to condemn Theunissen, saying people like him wants to take to country back to its dark apartheid era.
“Racist people like Matt insult gov because of its drive to transform SA take us backwards,” said Mbalula.
