The BLF leader has again upped the ante on racial politics and divisiveness in SA, but says he made the call as a threat of ‘self-defence’ against Johann Rupert.
A video clip showing Black First Land First (BLF) president Andile Mngxitama threatening that he and his followers will kill white people and their pets has raised renewed calls for him to prosecuted for hate speech.

Mngxitama was speaking at a party event in Potchefstroom on Saturday.

However, he said on Sunday that he had been speaking in the context of “self-defence” and was being misunderstood and taken out of that supposed context.
