Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema remixed his controversial "shoot the boer" song at a league conference in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday.

"Kiss the boer, kiss the boer," sang Malema.

He went on to sing "Dubula igwala" (shoot the coward).

Delegates sang along excitedly as Malema danced around the stage at the university's Howard College, repeating the riff "kiss the boer".

Malema set off a bout of hysteria in some quarters with his singing of the lyrics "shoot the boer" at the University of Johannesburg earlier this year, and at subsequent public appearances.

He was recently sent to political school by the party's mother body.

Malema also urged leaguers at the conference not to sing songs that were divisive.

A hate speech complaint regarding the "shoot the boer" lyrics, which the ANC believes is part of their struggle history, was referred to the High Court in Johannesburg on Thursday and is expected to be heard later this year.
