'Racism is a daily thing in Hartbeespoort'

Over 150 residents of Hartbeespoort on Friday marched to deliver a memorandum of demands at the local police station.

The residents are demanding that racism stop in the community.

Azania Mosaka spoke to Hartbeespoort Community Development Initiative spokesperson Russel Baloyi about their experiences in the community.

Russel Baloyi, Spokesperson for the Hartbeespoort Community Development Initiative
