Julius Malema has defended the EFF’s decision to sing the controversial struggle song Kill The Boer during its 10th-anniversary celebrations over the weekend.

The outspoken politician even claimed he had no intention to stop singing the song.

This week, Malema and the EFF have been trending topics following a viral video of them performing the song. Many South Africans – including Pretoria-born businessman Elon Musk – and opposition parties like the DA and FF Plus have condemned the video.

MALEMA ADDRESSES ‘KILL THE BOER’ BACKLASH

Speaking in a media address, Julius Malema touched on various topics following the EFF’s grand celebration at the FNB Stadium over the weekend.

And one of the burning topics was his chanting of Kill The Boer. Defending his actions, the controversial figure denied allegations the song would “incite violence” or fuel racial tensions.

He said: “If it had any negative connotation, it should have done it in the 90s. It had all the reasons to do it in the nineties. It still hasn’t done it. So, why would he do it now?

“To say to us don’t sing this song because it belongs to the nineties. You are asking me to forget my history. I will not do that.

“It’s part of my history. It’s where I come from. I use this song to remind myself of what we’ve gone through”.

‘NOT TARGETED AT INDIVIDUALS’

Malema added that the song was not aimed at white South Africans.

He continued: “We’ve emphatically and repeatedly said the boers and the farmers do not refer to individuals but refer to a system of oppression.

“So from its inception, it has never been targeted at individuals. It has always been targeted as a system of oppression.

“If we had intentions to kill anyone, we had 100,000 people under our noses after chanting it. We would have all left that stadium in unison to go and kill the white people. But our people understand it for what it is”.

APPEAL AGAINST EQUITY COURT’S RULING OF STRUGGLE SONG

Meanwhile, AfriForum has approached the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) to appeal the  Equality Court’s 2022 finding that Kill the Boer is not considered hate speech.

AfriForum CEO Kallie Kriel told BusinessLive that they were committed to opposing Malema’s “racist and polarising” agenda.
