At one point, he asked one of the farmers for a comment but the man was clearly not English. The 'boer' responded with:

"I am not very fluent in English."

Bauer then tells the man he can speak in Afrikaans and the farmer's reaction had South Africans in stitches.

"Nou my fok, hoekom se jy nie so nie? (My f**k, why didn't you say so?)"

Eusebius McKaiser shared the video on Twitter and captioned it:

"Hahahahahaha. WHY is it always @NickolausBauer with these classic TV moments."

A clip, shared by South Africa Now, reveals a female supporter taking part in the protest. When asked why she had travelled from her hometown to Senekal, she explained simply that she had come to 'support this case'.

The woman further explained that she was protesting against the racism and when probed as to who had been racist she answered that she suspected it had been the 'white ones'.
