Zulu wristband spat 'racist'

News24: "Durban - The ANC Women's League has described as 'racist' an incident in Vryheid where a Pick n Pay employee's traditional Zulu wristband allegedly was taken off by the manager.

The organisation's secretary Nonhlanhla Khoza was responding on Thursday to a newspaper report about the employee's wristband being cut off by her manager.

She said even though the report cited 'unhygienic' reasons for the act, the league believed the 'actions were motivated by racism and intolerance of black people's culture'."
