Cape Town – The Economic Freedom Fighters used Heritage Day as a platform to call for the removal of Die Stem from the national anthem.
But already the ANC said the party must be drunk to be making this demand.
The EFF’s national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement that the Afrikaans section of the anthem was oppressive.
Ndlozi said: “It is a song of oppressors, racists and mass murderers.
“Nkosi Sikelele must be sung in the same way as our people did when they were praying for a land free from oppression during colonial and apartheid years.
