Watch: The mayor of Free State was told to quit after he used the K-word.
Anything you say, simply don't say… that! The mayor of a Free State area shocked people when he used the word "K" in a public speech.

But for some people, the expression of regret doesn't go far enough. The Fezile Dabi branch of the EFF has rejected the apology, and they are now asking the man who is responsible for Moqhaka to "do the important thing" and leave...
