Another lewd Facebook rant over Durban beach goers

A Johannesburg man Ben Sasonof's Facebook post about black Durban beach goers has sparked an outcry.

Eyewitness News reports that the man commented on a photo showing a crowded beachfront.

The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) is expected to lay criminal charges against Sasonof over his comments.

Meanwhile, Saldanha Bay residents have accused the Democratic Alliance-led municipality of racism.

Residents say the municipality has restricted access to the beachfront.

According to reports, the municipality has issued passes to residents living near the beachfront, granting them exclusive access, while those who don't live in the multi million rand residential area have been barricaded out.
