Mixed reactions to Angelo Agrizzi's R200,000 K-word fine
Former Bosasa chief operating officer Angelo Agrizzi has been fined R200,000 for using the K-word.
Agrizzi has also been ordered to issue an apology to all South Africans.
The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has welcomed the judgment.
Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser show expressed their views on the matter.
The apology comes a little too late.Miles, Caller
My concern is that the fact that SAHRC doesn't have a bite. To attach a monetary value to what Agrizzi did is losing the effect of what they are trying to do. For me, the question is why R200,000. He spoke to every black person. Why R200,000?Shaun, Caller
I would accept the apology based on the fact that the minority since the apartheid struggle have never apologised informally or formally and to that, it has been a recurring upset to me.Siyanda, caller
