The Chairman of Bandung Africa’s Yetunde Asika, Hon Judge (Rtd) Peter Herbert OBE and other members of Bandung Africa have written an open letter to Mark Rowley, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, New Scotland Yard, London condemning Jeremy Clarkson’s Sun newspaper column, in which he said he “hated” the Duchess of Sussex.

He said that he loathed Meghan “on a cellular level”, compared her with the serial killer Rose West and said he was “dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her”.

Yetunde Asika said “This sick violent misogynist mindset has no place anywhere in 2022, regardless of whether or not this is what Clarkson is used to and enjoys.

Duchess of Sussex!

And it is unfathomable that this filth was published in a “mainstream” newspaper. It is a new low even for the Sun, to spread the such vile poison.

It is also extremely disturbing to me to know that there are people like Clarkson and Newton that are so comfortable to boldly and publicly act in this way, at their level, with obviously no fear of reprimand…Any attempt to try and gloss over his words as a joke is not going to fly with anyone I’m afraid and both Clarkson and Newton should be held accountable and criminally charged for the offence of incitement to hatred for hate speech and inciting violence.

Bandung Africa stands for women, and people of African descent globally. And it is important that we on the continent continue to build bridges and “close the gap” between us by standing up and speaking up for one another when we are targeted and terrorised. It does not matter what part of the earth we are, we must stand in solidarity for each other, we must protect each other and we must fight for each other. We are connected and we are one.”

The strongly-worded letter was also signed by Mr Lee Jasper, Former Police & Race Adviser to the Mayor of London and M Viv Ahmun, Director Blaksox, Hon. Claudia Webbe, M.P. for Leicester East, U.K. and Hon. Bell Ribeiro-Addy M.P. for Streatham, London, U.K.
