Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is again singing a different tune after he missed a hate speech-bullet this week.
The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) dismissed complaints lodged against the EFF leader and Godrich Gardee, secretary-general of the EFF. The commission released its findings on Wednesday to find that utterances made by Gardee and Malema did not constitute hate speech.
Four of the hate speech complaints were against comments made by Malema while the fifth was related to utterances made by Gardee. One of the complaints was in relation to a struggle tune Malema sang in 2018, calling for the killing of white people.
The song Kill the Boer appears to have been changed by the EFF leader – to Kiss the Boer, Kiss the Farmer. He has been singing it with these ironic lyrics for years, ever since he was first found guilty in 2011 of hate speech for singing it.
During his EFF campaign rally on Saturday, the EFF leader toyi toyed for the masses again singing what appears to be a parody version of Kill the Boer struggle song.
