Two white South African men have been arrested over a video in which they are seen forcing a black man into a coffin.

The men, who have been identified by local media as Williem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jacksonthen, are set to appear in court on Wednesday November 16.

They have been charged with “kidnapping and assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm.”

The 20 second video shows the two men threatening to put a snake into the coffin while the victim screamed.

The radical leftist opposition party, the Economic Freedom Fighters said the incident was “[a] humiliation based on nothing else but [the] blackness [of the victim] which means it is in actual fact a humiliation of black people as a whole.

The video, which went viral in South Africa, has caused a major uproar in a country where racism is still rife, two decades the end of apartheid.
