Johannesburg - Fraud-accused Julius Malema's singing Shoot the Boer influenced the actions of a convicted terrorist, the Phalaborwa Circuit High Court heard on Monday.

SABC news reported that clinical psychologist Franco Visser was testifying in the sentencing of Georgios Kiratzidis, Martinus Vorster and Ruan Louw.

Visser said Malema's singing of the song, as well as the murder of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader Eugene Terre'Blanche, left Kiratzidis in a terrible emotional state.

The trio planned to bomb the homes of African National Congress leaders, buses transporting blacks, and townships.

They were found guilty on charges including conspiracy to engage in terrorist activities, illegal manufacturing and possession of explosives, and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.
