More racism surfaces in South Africa as company director uses K word

The agricultural products retailer has hauled leading equipment distributor Kempston Agri, based in Gqeberha, and its German supplier, Claas SA, to court after technical manager Chris Diedericks allegedly used the K-word in a presentation in December 2020.
