Duduzane Zuma under fire for urging blacks to support Mngxitama to defeat Whites

The racist slur and threat to live by the BLF leader Andile Mngxitama received wide condemnation, but surprisingly Duduzane Zuma had a different perspective to the controversial utterances, urging Andile on.

The son of former President Jacob Zuma, Duduzane Zuma has called on all blacks to unite and fight white supremacy.

“There must be a time where black people unite against a cause that keeps them in economic chains, a time where blacks unite against white supremacy not against what threatens it. We should instead unite with Andile and deal with the rest later, black unity at this time is needed.”

However, the South African Human Rights Commission has resolved to institute litigation against Andile Mngxitama at the Equality Court.

The organisation said it is deeply concerned by the comments made by Mngxitama and other leaders as they had wide-ranging consequences on society.

This follows numerous complaints being lodged with the commission over comments made by the Black First Land First leader at a rally on Saturday December 8 in Potchefstroom, North West.

Mngxitama told his supporters at a small rally, in Potchefstroom in the North West, that five white people should be killed for every black person that dies in taxi violence. His comments have been widely criticised.

The SAHRC said although it respects individual rights to freedom of speech, it believes Mngxitama’s comments went too far beyond legal bounds.

“While the Commission will continue to promote and vigorously protect this freedom, it should be noted that the right is not without limitations. The Commission is of the view that the utterances by Mngxitama go beyond the legally permissible limits of free speech, hence the decision to institute action in the Equality Court against him,” said the commission in a statement on Thursday.
