DURBAN - The owner of a Sodwana Bay guest house will be charged with discrimination and his licence will be suspended.

That&39;s according to KwaZulu-Natal&39;s Tourism MEC Sihle Zikalala.

He was meeting with local business owners and tourism officials.

The meeting follows racist comments from the owner, Andre Slade, which caused a social media storm last week.

In an email, Slade told a prospective guest that they don&39;t accept blacks or government employees any longer.

Zikalala is expected to visit the guest house later on Wednesday.

He says he&39;s received a preliminary report after an investigation and that action will be taken.

The South African Human Rights Commission is also looking into the matter.
