Police detective denies racially abusing black guard

ALLEGATIONS: Colonel Christiaan Theron

A SOUTH AFRICAN police detective has appeared in court after allegedly racially abusing a black security guard.

Colonel Christiaan Theron reportedly called Bulelani Mgcuwe "a stupid black baboon," after he was asked not to park his car in a reserved parking bay.

Col Theron is also being charged with fraud, for offering Mgcuwe a sandwich and a car if he didn't take his complaint to the authorities.

Mr Mgcuwe said: "He asked me if I knew Western Cape is under the white people and the white people play the guitar and the baboons must dance."

"It reminded me of the apartheid years when the white people were still in charge. It was like he has a grudge against black people," he added.

Col Theron denies all allegations against him.
