Eusebius asks, 'What is the best way to deal with a character like Mngxitama?'
CapeTalk/702 listeners weighed in on Black First Land First (BLF) leader, Andile Mngxitama's controversial speech, made at a rally in Potchefstroom this past weekend.
According to reports, Mngxitama said that for every black person killed by the taxi industry, the BLF will kill five white people.
Eusebius McKaiser asks, what is the best way to deal with inflammatory political speech?
We can't allow people like the BLF to say what they are saying. I think they should be criminally prosecuted and if found guilty I think he should go to jail for it.Wayne, caller
I think Andile Mngxitama speech was taken out of context by the media. The guy did not just make a speech and said he is going to kill five whites for every black person killed. I think he was making a statement based on what Johan Rupert had said about being friends with the taxi bosses.Steven, caller
Such speeches just take us thousands of kilometres backwards. We need white and black people together to take this country forward. This nonsense of Andile Mngitama is taking us backward.Thulani, caller
The Democratic Alliance came out condemning Mngxitama's statement saying that it has reported him to the South African Human Rights Commission.
We have reported #AndileMgxithama to the South African Human Rights Commission and the Equality Court following his vile and distasteful remarks which he incites violence against white South Africans.https://t.co/5POYIcrw5i— Democratic Alliance (@Our_DA) December 10, 2018
The best punishment to give this #Andilemgxithama Person is by shaving him and washing him for 2hours.— Kazmaritan M2 (@kazma_molelekoa) December 10, 2018
We note the serious allegations against the BLF's leader. The Commission will offer the party an opportunity to clarify its statements in the light of the values of the Constitution. We will assess the matter for an appropriate course of action after receiving a response.— IEC South Africa (@IECSouthAfrica) December 10, 2018
