Malema and some 100 000 supporters sang the struggle song at the packed FNB Stadium during the EFF's 10th birthday celebrations on Saturday.

"He instructed them to ‘kill the Boer, kill the farmer’. Then he mimicked the sound of machine gun fire to members of his political cult, who answered with thunderous approval."


Steenhuisen says along with the EFF; the party also be laying charges against the ANC at the United Nations. 


"The first element of our UN case will focus on Malema’s repeated incitement of ethnic violence.


"The second element will charge the ANC national government before the UN over its years-long failure to take action against their one-time protégé even as brutal farm murders continue to escalate in the wake of Malema’s demagoguery."
