Hate speech ruling: ANCYL to appeal
Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League will appeal against a ruling that the song "awudubule ibhunu" (shoot the boer) is hate speech, secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa said on Wednesday.
The judgment favoured a minority in the country, he told reporters in Johannesburg.
"The minorities continue to control South African courts and control South Africa's majority."
Magaqa said the ANC Youth League intended taking the matter all the way to the Constitutional Court to have the anti-apartheid song unbanned.
AfriForum Youth laid a civil complaint with the Equality Court against league president Julius Malema for singing the words, saying they made minorities and farmers feel threatened.
Judge Colin Lamont ruled on Monday that the song constituted hate speech.
