‘We’ll kill their children & women’: Fury over black S. African politician’s call to kill 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.
