South Africa's opposition Economic Freedom fighters (EFF) party has called for a statue of Paul Kruger in the capital, Pretoria, to be demolished and for it to be replaced with one honouring the late Winnie Mandela.
from wiki
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is a South African far-left political party, that has been described by some political analysts as being fascist or racial nationalist in nature. It was started by expelled former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) President Julius Malema, and his allies, in 2013. Malema is President of the EFF, heading the Central Command Team which serves as the central structure of the party.

this is julius malema singing "Kill the Boer"

I know at least 1 white person from SA who wants to flee to NZ. It's not nice there for the whiteys now.

But wait, pretty much everybody in NZ are killed in traffic accidents (according to our resident expert). Why not just move to Russia (the promised land, according to the same expert)?

Man who called for a white genocide ordered to apologise

The SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) argued that a public apology from Velaphi Khumalo will suffice as punishment for his racial utterances. Khumalo appeared before the Equality Court for a Facebook comment in which he called for the massacre of white South Africans.
The SAHRC settled with Khumalo ordering the accused to apologise publicly, as that would deter other South Africans from making racial utterances. Khumalo was also ordered to pay R30 000 to charity.

google tells me that R30,000 is USD2,261
what did he say?
“I want to cleanse this country of all white people. We must act as Hitler did to the Jews.”


The SA Human Rights Commission (whatever that is exactly) feels that he's been punished enough already by having been made to apologize. He also faced disciplinary action from his employer
At the time of his racial rant, Khumalo was employed by the Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation. The department strongly condemned his statements; briefly suspending the employee with full pay.

As Jay Leno once said about a different case, isn't that a vacation?

If you follow the SAHRC's logic, if someone in the 1930s had made Hitler apologize and given him an extra vacation, the national socialists wouldn't have committed genocide

The SAHRC doesn't always feel that an apology will suffice
Vicki Momberg sentenced to three years in prison for racist K-word rant
The "K-word" isn't the one Hillary uses to refer to Jews. I believe it's an arabic word meaning "slave" which the Arabs (used to) use to refer to black Africans.
This woman was the victim of a "smash and grab" incident and asked to speak to a white police officer
The video shows Momberg complaining about black people and asking for someone who isn’t black to help her. According to Magistrate Pravina Rugoonandan, Momberg uses the “k-word” 48 times throughout the video.

Your concern for a people facing possible genocide is touching
I think most of them will go wherever they can at this point. Since many of them are of British and/or Dutch ancestry, I don't know why those countries aren't taking them. The Soros argument that Europe needs immigrants because of falling birthrates doesn't seem to apply when the would-be immigrants are white South Africans.
Russia seems to be one of the few countries where they are welcome, although one would expect that it's not their first choice
