‘We will do our best to make amends’

The family said the man‚ who has in the past served time at Westville prison‚ suffers from a chronic illness.

“He suffers a serious chronic illness. The visuals he posted of himself shows he lacks the intelligence and understanding of what he is saying. His incarceration for a long time has also played a role in his personality‚” said Khrishnan.

According to Krishnan‚ his brother’s health deteriorated years back. “His health took a turn for the worst a few years ago . . . Kessie needs immediate medical care and attention‚” he said.​

TimesLIVE reported that an unapologetic Nair said on Wednesday the state of the country prompted his video.

“I don’t think I’m being racist. I want to make a point‚ which I did. I am prepared to face the consequences. If the nation feels I was wrong‚ I will accept.”

Asked why he decided to make such a video‚ Nair responded: “I care about the nation – and Indians are soft targets.”

ANC KZN spokesperson Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said the video “impugns” Ramaphosa and South Africa’s dignity.
