Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema was attacked by the Democratic Alliance (DA) for chanting “Kill the boer, kill the farmer” at the red berets’ 10th anniversary celebrations.
According to the DA, Julius Malema will face charges at the UN Human Rights Council for using the anti-apartheid chant made famous by the late ANC Youth League president Peter Mokaba.
John Steenhuisen also wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to take a stand against the EFF.
Malema oversaw his party’s celebrations in front of the large crowd that had gathered at the FNB stadium on Saturday.
The Equality Court has already ruled that the slogan does not constitute hate speech, according to Sinawo Tambo, an EFF national spokesman.
Tambo said that the DA and the ANC could act anyway they wanted.
“I don’t think there’s a difference between the DA and the ANC so if Cyril Ramaphosa attempts to take action against the eff for commemorating South Africa’s liberation struggle, we won’t be shocked. The DA and the ANC are one and the same. We’re not even taking it seriously, we’re still in a celebratory mood.”
