JOHANNESBURG – The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it will be reporting Black First Land First (BLF) leader Andile Mngxitama to the South African Human Rights Commission and the Equality Court for inciting violence against white South Africans.
DA said it will lay complaints in terms of the Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act.
On Monday, Mngxitama was reported to have told a BLF rally in Potchefstroom during the weekend that if Johann Rupert hires anyone to kill one black person, they in return will kill five white people.
Mmusi Maimane leader of the DA has responded.
“When individuals like Andile Mngxitama violate the rights of other human beings and incite violence, we ought to as citizens condemn such statements. I hope the prosecution system will take its full action.”
Mngxitama comments received widespread backlash, with the Human Rights Commission saying they have already received multiple complaints.
