EFF calls on Die Stem to be removed from the South African national anthem

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has used the Heritage Day celebrations in the country to call for the removal of Die Stem from the national anthem.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said his party also wants the removal of all apartheid and colonial statues and symbols removed.

“These symbols perpetuate the comfort of racists and white supremacy,” Ndlozi said.
He said his party was joining all South Africans in celebrating Heritage Day saying “On this day, we reiterate our call for the return of the land through the management of our constitution to allow expropriation without compensation”.
