Julius Malema Hate Speech
On 15 March 2010, Julius Malema was convicted of hate speech by the Equality Court of South Africa, fined R50 000 and ordered to apologise unconditionally.
This was following a 2009 incident when he told a group of Cape Town students at a South African Students’ Congress (SASCO) meeting that the woman who accused President Zuma of rape had a “nice time” with him because in the morning she had “requested breakfast and taxi money”.
In March 2010, at a rally on a university campus, Malema sang the lyrics “shoot the Boer” (Dubul’ ibhunu) from the anti-apartheid song “Ayasab’ amagwala” (the cowards are scared). “Boer” is the Afrikaans word for “farmer” but is also used as a term for any white person.
His singing was compared to similar chants by deceased Youth League leader Peter Mokaba in the early 1990s, to “kill the boer”, which had previously been defined as hate speech by the South African Human Rights Commission.
In April 2011 Afriforum brought a case of hate speech against Malema in regard to the song and several notable ANC figures such as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and secretary-general Gwede Mantashe supported him in the court battle.
Aggressive and patronizing questioning of black witnesses by lawyers for the Afrikaner groups bringing the suit reportedly allowed Malema to portray himself as a victim of white persecution. On 12 September 2011, Malema was convicted of hate speech.
