He said the 53-member body is “presided over by the coloniser” and to respect the Commonwealth “perpetuates white supremacy”.

British Queen Elizabeth II is the head of the body founded in 1931. Her son, Prince Charles, has been lined up as her successor.

His comments came despite the fact that after the end of apartheid, South Africa scrapped the requirement that judges wear wigs.
