Velaphi Khumalo‚ an employee of the Gauteng Department of Sports‚ Recreation‚ Arts and Culture‚ will return to court on Monday to answer to a case of hate speech.

He will be appearing in the Equality Court‚ sitting in the South Gauteng High Court‚ after the South African Human Rights Commission brought the case in response to complaints about his January 2016 rant on Facebook.
