CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress in the Western Cape will lay a complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) against a Cape Town woman for making racist remarks on social media website Facebook.

“Vanessa Hartley, a resident of Hout Bay, has written an offensive Facebook post,” the ANC said in a statement on Sunday.

Hartley says too many Africans are flocking to Hout Bay, and soon there will be nothing left of it.

She has continued to defend the statement.

The ANC in the Western Cape is calling for the maximum penalty against her.
