Criminal charge laid against KZN woman after ‘ape’ remark aimed at President Ramaphosa
Police are investigating a KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) woman for allegedly making a derogatory remark about President Cyril Ramaphosa on social media.
"I can confirm that a case of crimen injuria is being investigated against a KZN woman after she allegedly referred to the president in a derogatory manner [on] her Facebook page," national police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo told News24 on Friday.
