Katie Hopkins Has Left South Africa With The Evidence After being Briefly Detained for “Spreading Racial Hatred” in Documentary on #FARMMURDERS
The controversial media pundit’s trip to South Africa has gone from bad to worse as airport authorities took her passport and briefly prevented her from leaving South Africa after being accused by the country’s authorities of ‘spreading racial hatred’.
The outspoken media pundit, who has had a dramatic week after collapsing in the street and taking ketamine for an agonising shoulder dislocation, revealed she’s been temporarily banned from getting on her flight home but was eventually allowed to go and tweeted that she was “out of South Africa with the evidence”.

In a short video filmed in the airport, Katie told her followers: “At passport control, I’ve been through security and I’ve been detained, my passport has been marked for spreading racial hatred here in South Africa.
“I’m not sure what’s going to happen, they’ve taken my passport away from me but it doesn’t look like at this present time I’ll be allowed to board my flight and leave the country.
“Amazing security co-ordination from a country where police do not respond to white farm murders because they are ‘on lunch break’.”
Katie caused a stir when she begged fans to support her independent journalism by donating to a documentary she’s making on what she branded “military-style” attacks on the country’s white farmers.
She was also stopped when she tried to enter South Africa and had her passport confiscated at Johannesburg airport, but was eventually given leave to enter.
Police on Tuesday denied that controversial UK columnist Katie Hopkins was detained at the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
Hopkins has since tweeted that she has left South Africa.
She had earlier claimed that she was detained at the Johannesburg airport for allegedly spreading racial hatred in South Africa.
I was detained at Joburg airport & had my passport confiscated on the orders of the ANC, trying to prevent me ENTERING the country. The slaughter of whites is a truth they don’t want told. Support the documentary here https://hopkinsworld-therebeluk.nationbuilder.com/southafrica
“I’ve been in contact with OR Tambo International Airport and can confirm that no case was opened, nor the journalist mentioned in your inquiry detained,” said Mogale.
Hopkins, who was in the country to report on farm murders, posted a video on Twitter saying that authorities had confiscated her passport and prevented her from catching her flight home.
Hopkins further claimed that her detention was politically motivated, on the orders of the country’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC).
Hopkins tweeted this along with a video: “Detained at passport control on the orders of the @MYANC. Amazing security co-ordination from a country where police do not respond to white farm murders because they are ‘on lunch break’ #ANC.”
According to her tweets, Hopkins was in South Africa to document “the violent, ethnic cleansing of white farmers by armed black gangs”.
