Bongani Bingwa:'I bet Nick Mallet nor Naas Botha don't see themselves as racist'

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa says the incident involving the walk-out of SuperSport presenter Ashwin Willemse has 'touched a nerve'.

Willemse left the set on Saturday evening following an apparent disagreement with Nick Mallett and Naas Botha.

Bingwa says it reflects the view that a person with Willemse's background ought never been in such a position in the first place.

The belief that you have arrived is one of the most dangerous. Because intrinsically it celebrates the fact that you have left others behind. And that you are proud you are one of the cool kids...he forgot that he wasn't actually one of the boys.

I've never met Nick Mallet nor Naas Botha but I would bet good money they do not see themselves as racist. But think about the buildup of telling somebody they don't belong because you do.
