The Kiffness has waded into the news of South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice, insisting the country should essentially fight their own battles.

The outspoken Cape Town muso – real name David Scott – has also defended the city of Cape Town’s decision to erase a mural on a public building paying homage to the people of Gaza. 

This week, SA began its representation at the IJC in The Hague in the Netherlands. Filed by a local legal team, SA is demanding that Israel “immediately suspend its military operations in and against Gaza.”

THE KIFFNESS QUESTIONS SA’S GENOCIDE CASE AGAINST ISRAEL

Known for his unpopular and controversial opinions, The Kiffness responded to a tweet about SA’s genocide case against Israel.

One tweep posted: “Why is South Africa, a country with an ongoing white genocide, being represented at the ICJ by whites?”

A seemingly annoyed muso – who supported Elon Musk’s claims of a “genocide of white people” in SA –  responded: “If you still can’t tell the difference between genocide and calls for genocide, then I can’t help you, I’m afraid.”

He added: “And yeah, the irony that our country, with over 25000 murders a year, is fighting for another country’s problems is not lost on me either.”

The Kiffness also responded to criticism of lawyer Tembeka Ngcukaitobi – one of SA’s representatives  – who previously claimed that the Kill The Boer song was “not a call for genocide.”

“We live in a clown world,” the muso added.

DEFENDING REMOVING FLAG MURAL

The Kiffness also shared his opinions about the removal of a Palestinian flag mural in Lavender Hill.

According to City of Cape Town safety and security MMC JP Smith, this was due to a graffiti bylaw in 2009 stating that “ any person wishing to erect a mural or any form of graffiti must first apply for permission from the city’s Department of Arts & Culture.

The move was harshly criticised on social media, with actor and presenter Siv Ngesi tweeting: “DA keeps scoring own goals.”

Another tweep posted: “This is in relation to the DA sending law enforcement to go remove the Palestinian flag mural on a building.

“Why don’t they use the same effort and energy to end gang violence?”

The Kiffness responded: “It’s a public building & the mural was erected without the necessary permissions. 

“Even if it was a show of solidarity, and even though people are obviously upset about what transpired, you can’t just paint stuff on public buildings without permission. Nice whataboutism”
