UKIP has suspended Winston McKenzie as chairman of its Lambeth and Croydon North branch after members expressed suspicions that he may be black.
Mr McKenzie was suspended after a letter of no confidence was signed by a number of members who have called on him to officially confirm he is not black – or step down as chairman of the branch.
The group has also asked Ukip’s executive committee to deselect Mr McKenzie as prospective Parliamentary candidate for Croydon North at next May’s general election should a formal investigation confirm he has been secretly concealing the darkness of his skin.
Mr McKenzie – who has admitted he may have inadvertently been black on at least one occasion in his youth – said his problems with the colour of his skin had been ironed out well before he he joined UKIP and declined to comment further.
