A Port Elizabeth businessman‚ who allegedly called a municipal staffer a “white c***” and threatened to deal with her‚ has had his contract reinstated – for now.
The city’s senior cemetery supervisor‚ Sharon du Toit‚ filed a crimen injuria complaint with police against funeral undertaker Vuyo Vantyi‚ alleging he swore at her after she blocked his business from being able to bury people‚ The Herald newspaper reported on Monday.
This was because his firm‚ Vantyi and Vantyi‚ owes the municipality R165‚570‚ the report stated. Vantyi has a month-to-month contract with the municipality to bury the city’s paupers.
Police spokesman Sergeant Majola Nkohli said: “Police are investigating a case of crimen injuria‚ but no arrests have been made so far.”
