Teenager ‘too black to be South African’

Sowetan - News: "The mother of an 18-year-old Mpumalanga boy who was awarded R90000 in damages after police said he was “too black” to stay in South Africa says the money could not have come at a better time.
Kate Ndlovu, of Busyisonto village near Bushbuckridge, had sued Safety and Security Minister Charles Ngakula for almost R540000, but said she was satisfied with the judgment.
Judge Willie Seriti of the Pretoria high court heard that police bundled her son, Shane Mhaule, into a van in Belfast in July 2004, apparently because they thought he was too dark to be South African."
