Controversial figure Katie Hopkins has been detained in South Africa, she’s claimed on Twitter.

After a divisive trip to the country to document the alleged ‘white genocide’ of farmers, the former The Apprentice contestant caused a stir when she was photographed collapsed on the street after being administered Ketamine.

Now, as she seeks a return to Britain, she took to social media to inform people that her passport has been confiscated and she’s currently unable to leave the country on the orders of the African National Congress.

In a video she uploaded, the former I’m A Celeb participant said she’d been detained for ‘spreading racial hatred’ and has had her passport marked.

‘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,’ she said.

She’s currently being held at passport control and as a result has had her passport removed from her possession but has been left with her mobile phone and wi-fi connection.

She followed up that she’s been pulled up while trying to enter the country, too. The divisive columnist also made the bold claim that authorities are trying to prevent the truth from coming out about the ‘slaughter of whites.’

Yet people actually living in South Africa are shutting down her accusation and publicly mocking her claim.

The outspoken personality has come under fire for her trip to South Africa, after her intent to ‘expose’ the suffering of the so-called genocide white farmers are experiencing all over the country.

Last month a GoFundMe was set up in a big to buy her recently up-for-sale home so refugees could be housed in it, after her inflammatory comments about refugees and migrants.

Early last year. she’d been reported to police for inciting hatred with a ‘final solution’ remark, following the Manchester terrorist attack.

Yahoo Celeb has reached out to Johannesburg authorities for comment.
