Charging an Indian origin political leader with making racist comments against Africans, South Africa's Human Rights Commission has asked him to apologise.

The Minority Front led by Amichand Rajbansi had published an advertorial in a community newspaper which allegedly contained some racist comments, Rights Commissioner in KwaZulu-Natal Prof Karthy Govender said after releasing a report on the issue.

The article was referred to the HRC by the Mayor of Durban, Obed Mlaba, who claimed the MF was promoting racialism in the city.

Asking Rajbansi to apologise "unreservedly and unequivocally", he said the MF leader should put mechanisms in place to ensure that such actions were not repeated by his members.
