Dubul’ ibhunu

Dubul’ ibhulu, translated as shoot the Boer[1] or more literally kill the Boer,[2] is a South African hate song. It is sung in Zulu and Xhosa.

South African hate song

Critics said that the song calls for, and celebrates, violence against the white South Africans[3] whereas supporters of the song say that it is a liberation song that articulates an important part of South Africa’s history.[3][4] Depending on the interpretation, the song might refer to institutional structures such as the NP; or to specific groups of people such as members of the Police Force (colloquially known as “Boers”) and Army during apartheid; or, if taken at face value, Boers, the wider Afrikaner ethnic group, white farmers, or even white South Africans generally.[3][5]

The song originates in the struggle against apartheid when it was first sung to protest the Afrikaner dominated apartheid government of South Africa.[5]

In post-apartheid South Africa the song has been most notably sung by then African National Congress Youth League leader Julius Malema[6] and then South African President Jacob Zuma.[7] Critics of the song such as AfriForum and TAU-SA state the song encourages and can be partly blamed for the problem of violent attacks on South African farms.[3]

In 2011, the South Gauteng High Court ruled that the song was discriminatory, harmful, undermined the dignity of Afrikaners, and thereby constituted hate speech.[8] The court ruled that Julius Malema, who was brought before the court for previously singing the song at rallies, was forbidden from singing it in the future.[8] Following the ruling Malema changed the wording of the song to “Kiss the Boer” and sang that instead[9] — however, it can be argued to still have the same psychological influence as the original, due to the well-known context for the altered lyrics. The following year, the African National Congress stated that they would not sing the song any more.[9]
