FF+: National reconciliation at risk

2010-04-04 12:30
Johannesburg - A call for calm by President Jacob Zuma would not diffuse the current situation if the taunting of white people continue, Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder said on Sunday.

"...(The call) will not diffuse the current situation if (ANC youth league president Julius) Malema and the ANC are to continue with its taunting of white people by singing the 'Kill the Boer' and similar kinds of inciting songs," said Mulder.

He said Zuma had a constitutional responsibility and obligation to ensure and promote stability, order and security for all South African citizens.

"President Zuma now has to visibly show leadership and without any hesitation, publicly condemn the singing of inciting songs which could create a climate of violence in the country," he said in a statement.

"The eyes of the world will today and in the following number of months be on President Zuma and the ANC government."

The dream of national reconciliation and nation-building is at present running the risk of being destroyed, he said.

"President Zuma cannot continue to take irresponsible inciters of racial hatred and conflict under his protection."

Terre'Blanche, 69, was attacked by a man and minor who worked for him after they allegedly had an argument over unpaid wages around 18:00 in Venterdorp on Saturday.

He was attacked with a panga and pipe at his North West farm.

A 21-year-old man and 15-year-old boy were arrested for the crime.
