Criminal charges have been laid against a Kwa-Zulu Natal man, known as Obatala Mcambi on Facebook, for inciting violence and hatred on social media.
Social cohesion advocate and anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee pressed charges at the Brooklyn Police Station in Pretoria on Sunday.
This comes ahead of Anti-racism week which will be held from 14 March to 21 March to coincide with Human Rights Day.
Police are now investigating after Abramjee handed over copies of the man's Facebook profile and screenshots of his post.
Mcambi posed with firearms and posted that ""I use my guns to rob and kill Indians & Whites. Please fellas, join me, we have to rape their kids with AIDS virus too!"
It may be difficult to hunt Mcambi down if he was using a false Facebook alias, but Saps' forensic scientists may be able to gain information from his digital footprint.
Other organisations and South Africans have since reported the man's account and laid charges in other areas.
The SA Minority Rights Equality Movement (Samrem) has reportedly offered a R10 000 reward to anyone with information leading to Mcambi's arrest.
Meanwhile, Abramjee has called on the Human Right Commission to explain what is being done about ongoing racism on social media.
I am been inundated with complaints of racism on social media. @SAHRCommission needs to explain to the public what needs to be done.— Yusuf Abramjee (@Abramjee) March 13, 2017
