AfriForum shocked at ANC’s intervention in hate speech case

AfriForum says it is surprised by the African National Congress’s decision to apply for leave to intervene in the hate speech issue between AfriForum and ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

The matter is due to start on 11 April 2011 in the Johannesburg High Court.

The ANC's application will be heard today before Judge Colin Lamont at the South Gauteng High Court.

ANC Secretary General, Gwede Mantashe stated that the controversial song "Dubula iBhulu" forms part of the “history of liberating South Africa from apartheid”.

AfriForum's lawyer, Willie Spies said in his reaction it was shocking that the ANC chose the same week in which high profile farm murders drew wide anger, to file their papers in support of the hate song.

Spies says with hate songs as heritage, it is no surprise that the ANC's only legacy is disorder, maladministration, corruption and violence.
