Bongani Bingwa shares his thoughts on the Panyaza Lesufi 'effigy' incident on Wednesday.

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa has likened Wednesday's 'effigy' incident outside the offices of the Basic Education Minister to what African-Americans suffered between the abolition of slavery and the Civil Rights Act in America.

Two men hung a model of the Gauteng MEC for Education, Panyaza Lesufi, outside Angie Motshekga's offices in protest at Lesufi's dual language policy.

Where are we? How did we get here? This was nothing short of symbolic lynching. That's the word - lynching. A practice of racial terrorism.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

READ: 'These morons came to "hang" me! - Panyaza Lesufi

The symbolic hanging of an effigy of Gauteng MEC Panyaza Lesufi by two 'morons'... is a symbolic lynching. How dare this "nigger" challenge our privilege? How dare he force integration down our throats? How dare he use public funds that every South African contributes towards, to include _them _in our schools...we'll show him who the master is. The baas. Lest he forget. We can terrorise him. Put fear in his black heart.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

These people need to be arrested, they are the no better than Vicky Momberg.
