Nicco Adolph Kallerman, 57 has been sentenced by a Phalaborwa Magistrate’s Court in South Africa to 12 months in prison for calling his colleagues’ uneducated baboons.
He was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment or twenty thousand rands (R20, 000) fine on Thursday, 26 August 2021.
Limpopo Police said that half of the sentence was suspended for five years on the condition that the accused does not commit similar offenses.
The sentence comes after an incident that occurred on Thursday, 07 May 2020, in which Kallerman, who was on duty at Foskor mine argued with the Labour Union Representatives.
Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said;
“The argument escalated to a level where he called them uneducated baboons. Police were notified and a case of crimen injuria was ultimately opened and assigned to the dedicated Detective Warrant Officer Nakampe Snyman Malatji,”
