Steve Hofmeyr spits venom

K-word lyrics on Facebook

MUSICIAN Steve Hofmeyr has cemented his role as defender of Afrikaner pride.

The singer has posted racially charged lyrics praising murdered AWB leader Eugène Terre'Blanché and calling blacks k****rs.

Yesterday, Hofmeyr posted the lyrics of his new song, Ons sal oorleef, which means "we will survive", on his Facebook page.

The lyrics read: "My heart beats like a tapping-beetle as it breaks for my volk/ before the khaki cannon or the k****r's dagger/ It no longer matters where we go/ We will survive".

He said the song was dedicated to Terre'Blanché, whom he referred to as his uncle.

Hofmeyr said the use of the K-word was conditional to the verdict of the hate speech court case between ANC youth league leader Julius Malema and AfriForum.

If Malema loses the case, Hofmeyr said, he would change the word k****r to "kryger" which means warrior.

He said the song would be "my struggle song which I sing outside the courts where there are mitigation calls for the killers of our people and children".

Malema was taken to the equality court in the Johannesburg high court by AfriForum for singing "Dubul' ibhunu (shoot the boer). The case is expected in court on Thursday.

ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said: "We do not entertain fools. Steve Hofmeyr wants attention."

AfriForum chief executive Kallie Kriel said: "We condemn any form of racism. People should never allow Julius Malema's racial utterances to provoke them to use racial terms. I have had contact with Steve and also sent him a letter urging him not to use racial terms."

Kriel said he had not seen the Facebook page.

"We will look at the post and if it is racist, we will enter into discussions with Hofmeyr the same way we did with Malema," he said.

The Human Right's Commission's Vincent Moaga said he could only comment after seeing the post.

The Facebook post attracted more than 250 comments and over a thousand "likes".

Commenting on the Facebook post, Amelia Nel said: "Steve, your father would be very proud ... that's for sure ... Our dear father's grace is indescribable."
