South Africans are outraged after a recent speech by a local revolutionary socialist politician who called upon his followers to kill white people, including women, children, and even pets owned by whites.
Andile Mngxitama, the leader and founder of pan-Africanist political party Black First Land First (BLF), has been repeatedly heard using harsh language to criticize white people. But this time his comments seem to have gone way overboard.
Speaking at a rally in the city of Potchefstroom over the weekend he promised that “for every one black person we will kill five white people.” The politician was apparently referring to the infamous decades-long taxi wars in the country between taxi associations and individual minibus taxi drivers.
“We’ll kill their children, we’ll kill their women, we’ll kill their dogs, we’ll kill their cats… we’ll kill anything we find in our way,”Mngxitama went on with his furious tirade, rallying the crowds
The furious speech didn’t go unnoticed by the general public or social media who called his remarks an incitement to white genocide.
What are you going to do about Andile Mngxitama? If you do nothing over that call for genocide of the minority, then you are not a HRC, then you are an accomplice

Inciting a crowd to commit genocide.

Mngxitama need to say Sorry because he was wrong and racist to threaten whites in general because of Rupert who represent the Rich few, while Rupert need to do the same for threatening BLF with his taxi crime connections.

Andile Mngxitama proved with his recent statements that he’s not the type of a leader we need as Africans.
It’s one thing to fight for the land, but inciting genocide is totally unacceptable.
