12 May 2011 9 Comments
Popular, outspoken Afrikaans-language campaigner, the composer/singer Steve Hofmeyr has gone and done it. His new song is enraging the black South African community.He has thrown down the gauntlet – challenging ANC youth league leader Julius Malema about his continuous demonisation of the Afrikaners and inciting his followers by chanting ‘ Shoot the Boer. ‘ If Malema can sing songs which incite people to kill his fellow-Afrikaners, than Hofmeyr figures he can also sing his new song – and which contains the word ‘kaffir’: Other than Malema’s chant, Hofmeyr’s new song does not however call for the annihilation of anyone – as this crowd at Malema’s trial is doing in front of the Johannesburg Equality Court’s steps.
Steve Hofmeyr’s new song – lyrics
“My hart klop toktokkie waar hy breek vir my volk
Voor die kakie kanon of die kaffer se dolk
Dit maak nie meer saak nie waar ons ons begeef
Ons sal dit oorleef…
Ek lig my oë tot die berge op
Waar sal my hulp tog vandaan kan kom
Ag my God jou woorde lê deur my geweef
Ons sal dit oorleef…”
My heart beats toktokkie where it breaks for my people
against the Engish canons or the Kaffir’s dagger
It matters none where we now are heading
We will survive this ordeal
I raise my eyes to the mountains
ask where will my help arrive from?
Oh my Lord your words are woven within me…
We will survive this ordeal..
