Andile Mngxitama, leader of BLF, once again got flamed after making controversial remarks. This time, Mngxitama called for the murder of white people, their children, and their pets.
As reported by The Citizen, Mngxitama's call to racial violence causes more divisiveness in South Africa, and people are not happy with what he said.
The BLF head was addressing members at a party event in Potchefstroom on the 8th of December.
Mngxitama claims he was only making the call as a way of self-defence against South African billionaire, Johann Rupert.
According to Mngxitama, Rupert wants to cause "black-on-black" violence between taxi drivers by paying them to kill each other.

After Mngxitama's call to action, South Africans are hoping he will be taken on for hate speech, as his words are inciting violence based on colour.
The BLF leader and upset South Africans took to social media over the matter:
@jpvanee - Who is going to take this up with the authorities? @afriforum . @IRR_SouthAfrica . @VFPlus. @FMFSouthAfrica. Public protector?
@JeanKriek - #SouthAfrica | THIS IS A CLEAR DEATH THREAT AIMED AT WHITES!
Why @SAHRCommission is @Mngxitama being allowed to propagate a race war with absolutely no consequence? DON'T BE SURPRISED IF WE #FightBack!#BanTheBLF #ArrestMnguptama

This call to action comes shortly after members of BLF were accused of a racial attack on a female member of the Johannesburg Bar council.
Briefly.co.za reported that Mngxitama claimed the members were provoked by the woman's racism.
