After the murder of extremist Eugène Terre ‘Blanche agrees ANC youth leader Julius Malema on songs that poison the atmosphere on the Cape – and jeopardize a peaceful future.
The white extremist Eugène Terre ‘Blanche has been killed in South Africa. Yet little is known about the background of the fact, is quite clear that the murder provides fuel for the enemies of democracy.
Radical right-wing forces are out for revenge. This need not spiral of violence set in motion, but an escalation is possible if the political leadership underestimated the risks arising from the tensions between the white and black population in South Africa.
It is as dangerous when ANC officials singing the likes of Julius Malema songs like “Kill the Boer”, as this would be generally recognized heritage from the days of the liberation struggle. The wounds of apartheid are still not healed, so it is inevitable that such songs poisoning in South Africa today the mood – and stir up violence.
Malema’s unreasonable and that the song even after the murder of Terre’Blanche continue singing is an embarrassment for South Africa. In ten weeks, the country intends to present itself as a tolerant nation in the World Cup. But Malema zündelt without him that the ANC has in their place.
The youth leader is singing such songs because he wants to increase its popularity and the frustrated rally behind him, which were suspended from the boom. A responsible President needs leaders like Malema with determination, because they undermine the chances for a peaceful future in the Cape.
Jacob Zuma may now prove whether he has the courage. Songs like “Kill the Boer” are relics from a time that South Africa has to overcome if the vision of the rainbow nation is still something.
