  • African farmers call for Mulder's head


    Deputy Agriculture Minister Pieter Mulder is not fit for office, the African Farmers' Association of SA (Afasa) said on Tuesday.

    "He must immediately do the honourable thing and resign," Afasa president Mike Mlengana said in a statement

    "This will give him time to revisit [the] history of this country wholly and not selectively."

    Mulder, also the leader of the Freedom Front Plus, said in Parliament last week that "Bantu-speaking" people had no historical claim to 40 percent of South Africa's land.

    Mlengana said: "As African farmers, we are extremely saddened and astonished by the deputy minister's remarks."

    The issue of was a thorny and highly sensitive one, he said.

    The National Emergent Red Meat Producers Organisation (Nerpo) supported Afasa's call for Mulder to resign and described his conduct as "regrettable", especially coming from a Cabinet minister.

    "His regrettable conduct leaves us with a serious doubt that he is ready to serve in government," said Nerpo managing director Aggrey Mahanjana.

    On Monday, ANC general secretary Gwede Mantashe also took a swipe at Mulder for his remarks.

    Launching a book on the ANC's centenary, Mantashe said the first war of resistance was fought in 1659 by the Khoi and the San people.

    "He [Mulder] believes the genocide that followed that war left no Khoi and San people... He believes there were no people left."

      Rubbish.

      If he is incompetent at his job then fire him by all means.

      If his analysis of history doesn't suit you that's got nothing to do with his position.

      Besides, if we had to remove everyone who was not fit for office we would have no government left.

      Can we have a productivity report on the African Farmer's association before we take them seriously?

      I'm sure they produce at least enough food to feed their own families.

      That is the best idea ever. It would be nice to start over without the apartheid dinosaurs.

      "African Farmers' Association of SA (Afasa)" is this another racist black organisation?

      Amen to that. They can go and play in the traffic for all I care, where have they been during all the farm attacks?

      Shame, did uncle Pieter touch a nerve there.
      Afasa members should really go read up on their ancestors settlement history.

      Sensationalist headline ftl.

      Ofcourse the fact that the other organisation as well as the DA have come out against his comments makes no difference.

      Never would have thought something so unimaginably simple - saying that there were no bantu speaking people living in the Cape - would turn into such a fight.

      The FF, like AfriForum have a proud history of putting their foot in it and then stirring it. They come across as too intelligent for this to be unintentional.

      The truth is irrelevant. The comments are so racist. He is a racist. He must step down immediately and serve some time in a jail nearby. They will show him the truth. Racist.

      This is, I suppose, precisely the point why this is so stupid. The truth or non truth of what he said doesnt matter, because the ruling elite decided they didnt like it and called it racist. As long as you call someone racist, what they said doesnt actually matter.

      Next time:

      Pieter Mulder: "Black people are more intelligent than white people."
      ANC: "Haawwuu that is racist against black people, how can you say that?"
