“Kill the boer” song

When any white person will sing exactly the SAME “ANC struggled song” for black citizens during court cases or black funerals and replace the “word” Boer with “K-word” or “black” (to kill the black people), the current government will take action against those white singers as in the case of Vicky.   What happened in the past regarding this “kill the boer song” – there are discrepancies, two sets of rules in South Africa.   Vicky Momberg is a typical example of two sets of rules – one for the whites and one for the others.   While Vicky was attacked by blacks, nothing happened to them, but she was arrested and sentenced because of the “K” word.   

It was also later stated in the one article that ANC leaders referred to “apartheid” when they sing the “kill the boer”song.   The so-called apartheid – segregation sytem – was implemented in 1854 by the British and Black and other groups of people just after the Mfecane wars with the Shepstone Policy.

2019 – Blacks still live in the same areas, their own homelands, but today it is called Trustlands or CPA’s (landclaims) after 1994 – all separate from each other today, with their own traditional leaders.   Ingonyma Trustland is only for the Zulu people.

Branko Brkic, the  Founder, publisher and editor Daily Maverick reported on 29 March 2010 that a judge has ruled already in 2010 that the phrase “shoot the boer” amounts to hate speech, and so it’s now illegal to chant the song. The ANC, who complained that the judge didn’t approach them for historical context, may take the case on appeal. Of course, there’s a context to the song that the ANC’s not admitting.

Upon establishment, Wise recruited Anton Mostert SC to lead the Group and Richard Goldstone to join.  When Mostert became a judge in 1974, Johann Kriegler SC was recruited to lead the Group, which he did until 1985 when he became a judge.  In 1980, when Goldstone became a judge, Mostert returned to the Bar after his exposure of the government’s secret funding of the Citizen newspaper.  He took up Goldstone’s chambers and practised until his tragic death in 1999.

ZAPIRO ARTICLE

Here’s the latest by Zapiro. Interesting, on the 1st of April he mocked Afriforum and the court for over-reacting about the singing of this very song, and now he draws this. |An apology of sorts? But okay, I’ll forgive Zapiro, seeing that he normally so bravely draws where angels fear to fly.
And literally only hours after the ANC slammed Helen Zille for criticising Zuma and the government’s silence on Malema, we now hear a half-hearted sort of “okay, we’ll talk to him, and he won’t be allowed to sing the whole song”.

Okay, which parts will he be allowed to sing? You decide. Here’s the translation. With acknowledgement to fellow-blogger Geannan.

Will he only be allowed to sing shoot shoot, or perhaps the cowards are scared?Ironic, once again, referring to scared cowards. I suppose HEROES kill people in their sleep – and NO, I’m NOT referring to ET only. Read today’s news, and you’ll see that a 18-year old Matric pupil Ernst Hoon was shot IN HIS BED for his laptop. Also see Geanann’s listing of horrific murders on old people and farmers at  http://letterdash.com/g.annandale/malema-stikes-major-target

From what I can see the only thing in this song that is NOT hatespeech, is mother leave me be.

But where does the song come from? Here is a brief history of the song, with acknowledgements to Kevin Bloom and www.thedailymaverick.co.za (29 March 2010).

A judge has ruled that the phrase “shoot the boer” amounts to hate speech, and so it’s now illegal to chant the song. The ANC, who complained that the judge didn’t approach them for historical context, may take the case on appeal. Of course, there’s a context to the song that the ANC’s not admitting.

On a Saturday morning in winter 2002, scores of luxury sedans descended onto what was then known as the University of the North in Mankweng, outside Polokwane. In the cars were struggle veterans, government ministers and many of the icons of the ANC – amongst them former president Nelson Mandela, president Thabo Mbeki, deputy president Jacob Zuma, and “mother of the nation” Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. Formal proceedings had begun at 7am at the nearby home of the deceased, and emotions had been building for hours. When Limpopo premier Ngoako Ramatlhodi announced that the coffin of Peter Mokaba had arrived in the university’s stadium, the crowd spontaneously erupted into a chant of “Kill the boer, kill the farmer”.

It was a refrain that Mokaba had first uttered at a Chris Hani memorial rally in Cape Town in 1993, during the explosive months when it seemed possible that South Africa would descend into all-out race war. On that day Mokaba, the then president of the ANC Youth League, galvanised his organisation’s deep anger at Hani’s murder by rightwing whites into something concrete: a song that perfectly (and terrifyingly) expressed the anger.

Race war was averted, thanks in large part to the efforts of Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, but nine years later, around the time of Mokaba’s funeral, there was still a community in South Africa who believed they were being targeted and killed because of the colour of their skin. These were the boers themselves, the white farmers, and they had the numbers to back themselves up.

A Dutch journalist by the name of Adriana Stuijt, a former anti-apartheid activist, was quoted saying the following after the funeral of Mokaba:

“”Why has the South African farmer become the world’s most endangered species? Why are South Africa’s few remaining commercial farmers now most at risk of being murdered in the whole world? They are being murdered at 264 per 100,000 population group. It is the highest in the world! A Nedbank probe recently described these farm attacks as ‘deliberately targeting specific homesteads to kill the Afrikaner victims.’”

Stuijt also pointed out that if these “vicious” farm murders had occurred in Zimbabwe, they would be global news. She felt that post-apartheid South Africa was somehow immune to the truth of what was going on in the platteland.

A further eight years later and, for reasons nobody can quite explain, another leader of the ANC Youth League rolled out the “kill the boer” slogan, although this time in a slightly different form. In protest, Afrikaner lobby group Afriforum took a petition to the ANC’s head offices in Johannesburg – along with the petition, they handed over a list of 1,600 recent victims of farm attacks in South Africa. The Youth League’s response was to throw the list into the gutter and trample on it.

Finally, on Friday March 26th 2010, the question of the legality of the phrase was brought before a South African court. According to Acting Judge Leon Halgryn of the South Gauteng High Court, it is now unconstitutional to utter or sing the phrase “dubul’ibhunu” (“shoot the boer”) in the country. Halgryn ruled that the phrase amounts to hate speech, and is therefore not protected by section 16 of the constitution, which safeguards freedom of speech.

The ANC, reportedly, are going to take the matter on appeal. They have expressed surprise at the court’s failure to approach them for insight on the history of the struggle song, Ayesaba Amagwala (the cowards are scared).

The lyrics of the song include the words, “aw dubul’ibhunu (shoot the boer) amagwala (the cowards) dubula dubula (shoot shoot)”.

Two weeks ago, ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe explained the organisation’s position. It was a few days after ANC Youth League president Julius Malema had sung the above lyrics at a University of Johannesburg rally (he had apparently also sung them at his recent birthday celebrations in Polokwane) and the ruling party, in Malema’s defence, maintained that the song needed to be understood in the context of the struggle against apartheid.

“When we talk (about) amabhunu, we were not talking (about) whites, we were talking about the system (of apartheid),” Mantashe said. “It represented the system. (The song) is not a new invention.”

“The biggest problem I have is when journalists interpret (dubul’ ibhunu) as ‘Kill the boer, kill the farmer’, which is a vulgarised interpretation of the song. And in my view that journalist who vulgarised the interpretation is inciting conflict.”

Of course Mantashe made no reference to Mokaba, and Afriforum Youth chairperson Ernst Roets remained unconvinced. “There is no way in which you can dismiss the song as something that simply has to be viewed in a political context and that doesn’t have any real consequences,” he said.

If the ANC do indeed take the case on appeal, they’ll be arguing the opposite. They will have to show the judges in the Supreme Court of Appeal, and perhaps eventually the Constitutional Court, that a song calling for the killing of members of a specific community is different to a song calling for the shooting of those selfsame people. They will have to show, effectively, that when Mokaba sang “kill the boer” in 1993 and Malema sang “dubulu’ibhunu” in 2010, they intended something completely different.
