'Whites get away with murder'

Cape Town - The song "shoot the boere" was a reminder of what still needed to be done in South Africa, the Azanian Youth Organisation said on Thursday.

The song forms part of South Africa's collective history and could not be abandoned "to please the liberal media and the white right-wing groups... for the sake of reconciliation", Azayo spokesperson Sibongile Somdaka said in a statement.

Many people had blindly followed the empty rhetoric of reconciliation and had "submerged the African majority interests and yearning for justice and equality in favour of an elusive dream that has seen white people getting away with murder".

"So long there is still a lack of ownership of our land by black(s) and fair distribution of resources... Azayo will continue to sing 'shoot the boere/dubula ibhunu' song in all our gatherings... to remind the coming (sic) of where we come from, and what still needs to be done in the country," he said.

Azayo is the youth wing of the Azanian People's Organisation, which has one seat in Parliament and says it is the only authentic flag bearer of black consciousness in South Africa.

Civil rights organisation Afriforum and agriculture union TAU are currently seeking a high court order to prevent ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema from singing the song, which originated during the liberation struggle.
