Julius Malema wants “Die Stem” out of the South African National Anthem and you responded.


During a recent press conference – with an informal settlement as a background might I add? The EFF leader, Julius Malema boldly declared that some of the reasons the EFF would not go into a coalition with the DA was due to a few fundamental differences. One of those was the removal of “Die Stem” from the South African National Anthem.


Never one to shy away from controversy Julius Malema was quoted as saying; “Die Stem must be removed from the national anthem because it’s a symbol of apartheid. They said it can be removed easily, it just needs the president who has the powers to do so. But we have to take the country in confidence because we have to bring everyone together, Musi Maiame said to me it was like asking the Jews to sing to Hitler.”
