CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Jesse Mfolozi who had all sorts of racist remarks thrown at her by her cousin's neighbour in Edgemead. Cape Town.

According to Mfolozi, her cousin's kids got into a fight while playing with their neighbours children but their father came out with guns blazing coupled by derogative slurs.

We understand that kids will be kids but this guy came out guns blazing, literally yelling all kinds of derogatory terms to our cousin...
