JOHANNESBURG - Penny Sparrow has been ordered to pay R150,000 within 60 days to the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation.

The ANC took Sparrow to the Equality Court following a Facebook post in which she compared black beachgoers in Durban to monkeys.

She later apologised for the Facebook comment.
