The civil rights organization AfriForum was in the High Court in Johannesburg on Monday for a review application regarding the South African Human Rights Commission’s (SAHRC) decision in 2019 that the EFF leader Julius Malema did not commit hate speech at a rally in Newcastle in 2016.
Malema het by hierdie geleentheid onder andere gesê: “We are not calling for the slaughtering of white people, at least for now.”
In 2019, AfriForum submitted court documents to have the SAMRK’s decision reviewed. The case is being heard by Judge Roland Sutherland.
According to Ernst van Zyl, campaign officer for strategy and content at AfriForum, the list of cases where blatant double standards are applied in relation to clear hate speech committed against racial minorities in South Africa continues to grow.
“This trend must be stopped urgently and through cases like this, AfriForum plays an important role in this struggle,” says Van Zyl.
The case continues on Tuesday.
AfriForum also submitted complaints to the HRC in October last year following Malema’s remarks at the EFF’s provincial meeting in the Western Cape. Among other things, Malema said at the event: “You must never be afraid to kill, a revolution requires killing at some point, because killing is part of the revolutionary act.”
