Crowd sings 'shoot the boer' at court

2011-09-12 12:49

Johannesburg - A crowd broke into singing "dubhula ibhunu", (shoot the boer) at the South Gauteng High Court after the words were declared hate speech on Monday.

"We are not scared," sang another group.

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, against whom the case was made, was not present.

General secretary Sandiso Magaqa said the league would first study the judgment before responding.

"We will defend the heritage of the ANC," he said, stressing that there was no other response until leaders had been consulted.

In spite of contravening a court order, nobody was apprehended among the group of singers.

Judge Collin Lamont ordered that the words not be used publicly or privately.

An ANCYL member said after the ruling: "When we sing these songs, we sing about history not about racism. I don't understand why he was guilty. We sing about the history of the ANC, there is no racism".
