WPRU vice-president Gerald Njengele has been accused of launching a verbal and racial attack on the national manager of the Vuka Rugby Programme.
According to Netwerk24, the incident took place at the Cape Town Sevens after Jessie Claassen refused to shake Njengele’s hand. The pair had clashed back in August.
When this happened, Njengele allegedly responded: ‘F**k you white people, f**k the coloureds. I’m a clever darkie. I don’t need your f*****g money.’
Njengele has since denied making those comments.
WPRU president Thelo Wakefield confirmed to Netwerk24 that an inquiry had been commissioned.
The Vuka Rugby Programme is an SA Rugby-affiliated initiative that aims to cater for rugby development in the country.
