Professor Lyal White from the University of Johannesburg says Bolsonaro's election win is concerning.

Former army captain Jair Bolsonaro has been elected president of Brazil.

The president-elect is known for statements others deem as misogynistic, racist and homophobic.

Bongani Bingwa and Senior Director of the Johannesburg Business School at the University of Johannesburg Professor Lyal White look at what his election victory mean for the BRICS nations.

These are very concerning developments in Brazil.

Brazil has always been seen, from the vantage point here in South Africa, as a progressive country we would like to emulate because of their racial mix and history.

Professor Lyal White, Senior Director of the Johannesburg Business School at the University of Johannesburg

He has been described as a racist, a bigot, dictator, misogynist with good reason.
