DURBAN - Controversial Sodwana Bay Guest House owner Andre Slade says he is not sorry about his comments about black people and he supports the system of apartheid.

Slade spoke from inside his yard after KwaZulu-Natal Tourism MEC Sihle Zikalala opened a case of hate speech, illegal operation and tax evasion against him.

Slade recently sparked an uproar after saying his guest house does not accommodate black people or government officials.



Slade says if it was up to him, the system of apartheid would reinstated, saying he believes in the apartheid laws because they were based on Christianity.

His partner Katherine says black and white people shouldn't even mix.

"It's just like apricot and peach, we're not the same. We're saying the truth (sic)."



The both reiterated their belief that black people were only created to be servants.

"We are not racist, that is something that doesn't exist. The Bible tells us that there's segregation and we're just sticking with what the Bible is telling us."
