Shoot the Boer classified as chant

By Lelethu Mquqo

University of the Free State lecturer Anne-Marie Gray says if Shoot the Boer or Dubula ibhulu is never heard again it won’t be a loss, as it is a chant and not a song.

Gray told the Equality Court in Johannesburg a chant was much more threatening to people who didn't understand it, because of the repetition and the gestures that accompanied it.

But one of Julius Malema’s advocates broke into song in court to prove that the phrase forms part of an old struggle song.

The ANC Youth League leader is being charged with hate speech for his use of Shoot the Boer.
