OPINIONISTA: Act’s hate speech provision hard to understand, says Supreme Court of Appeal

The Supreme Court of Appeal last week declared unconstitutional the hate speech provision contained in the Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act. The court held that the provision was ‘overbroad’ and unjustifiably limited the right to freedom of expression. However, in terms of the judgment, some forms of hate speech would remain prohibited in terms of the act.
