Malema Remarks Not Hate Speech - South African Rights Body

The South African Human Rights Council has found that none of the utterances made by Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema or his party during between 2016 and 2018 legally constitute hate speech. Some of the complaints related to Malema's singing of the "kill the boer" song, his statements on Indian people's mistreatment of black people in KwaZulu-Natal and his call for the slaughter white people.
