Maselspoort racial incident: Attacker sentenced to 12 months in prison or R4000 fine



Maselspoort racial incident

A white South African man who assaulted two black children at the Maselspoort Resort in Free State has been fined R4000 or sentenced to 12 months in prison.

The incident which happened around  December 25, last year, had a video  that was extensively dispersed on the internet showed two black children being beaten by white men for swimming in ‘a reserved for white only’ pool. When police got on the scene, the groups had already departed.

“He was further sentenced to three years imprisonment, which was wholly suspended for a period of five years on condition he is not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension.”

Family came to spend the day @ MASELSPOORT RESORT & CONFERENCE CENTRE in Free State. My brothers were attacked by these grown men because they are apparently not allowed in the pool as it’s reserved for the “white people” here.

Shuping said Van der Westhuizen apologised to the children and their family, who accepted his apology and he also apologised to the South African public.

The case against Jakobus Klaasen and Johan Nel was postponed to 3 July for consultations.
