Political party Freedom Front (FF) Plus has placed a complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The complaint was lodged for the EFF singing a song called "Kill the Boer" during protests in Senekal, Free State on Friday.

EFF members were protesting in a street in Senekal just before 7 AM, where two suspects in the murder of farm manager Brendin Horner appeared for the second time at the Senekal Magistrate's Court.

In the video footage, EFF can be heard singing the song as they protested against the dismantling of state property by "white arrogance", according to leader Julius Malema.

Leader of FF Plus Pieter Groenewald said that it was time to take action against Julius Malema and the EFF.

“Julius Malema is not above the law and the time has come for action to be taken against him in the interests of everyone in the country,” he said.

Groenewald said that this behaviour is unacceptable.

He said: "Farm murders are a reality and it is these kinds of irresponsible statements and incitement that undoubtedly play a role in farm attacks and murders."

Following court proceedings, Malema addressed the EFF saying that he was only fighting for equality. He said that they do not want to kill the white man but they only want equality.

The Economic Freedom Fighters, in their usual signature style, arrived in Senekal early on Friday morning. Leader Julius Malema and deputy EFF president Floyd Shivambu were also present, with Malema encouraging his so-called 'ground forces' to march as they please in the town that he says they own.
