South African military officer dismissed from service over racial comment he made on social media

A South African military officer, Major MV Mohlala, has been dismissed from service over racial comments he made on Facebook.

Mohlala had left a vile comment in a post shared by the son of an 80-year-old white man, Pastor Braam van Wyk, who was attacked at his home in Randburg on March 10th.

In response to the post, Mohlala commented that worse things should have been done to the man.

”Should actually have poked out his eyes and tongue so that the last people he would ever see, were the killers and he could go to his grave with the nightmare.” Apartheid is in him. All of these old white people think we are stupid when they say they were opposed to apartheid. We will not forget what they have done. Now it is the white people’s turn.” Mohlala wrote

After much deliberation by the military authority, he has been dismissed from office. See a copy of his dismissal letter below
