sahrc thumb medium90 90BusinessLive reports that the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) confirmed on Thursday that Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) and the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation lodged a complaint of racism against Rajesh Gupta with the Gauteng office this week.  

The matter is currently being assessed.  LHR and the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation approached the ANC to lead the complaint against Gupta for allegedly "referring to his employees as monkeys and causing them much distress", but the party refused.  The social justice organisations want the commission to order Gupta to pay R150‚000 compensation to the two guards and R150‚000 to institutions that work against hate speech.  They also want him to tender an unconditional verbal apology‚ attend equality sensitivity training, and perform community service.
