Plovdiv, Bulgaria: The youth of Plovdiv-based football club supports the white South African farmers who were brutally murdered and tortured after the hate speech given by South African Politician Julius Sello Malema. He is a Member of Parliament who chanted “Kill the Boer, Kill the farmer” during their rally.
The Boer is the Afrikaners of Dutch descendants and are the leading farmers in South Africa. On July 7, 2023, the Boer Adele Kimble, 75, survived an attack by 3 African men on his house located on his land off Uitkyk Road.
He was attacked ruthlessly with clear intentions of killing him due to the hate speech spread by Malema. The farmer suffered multiple injuries with broken teeth and cuts.
The Youth supporters of Botev Plovdiv came forward to show support for the white farmers who were attacked by racists murdering them due to their skin colour.
Since July 31, 2023, after the hate speech chant “Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer” was chanted by South African politician Julius Sello Malema, a rapid boost in the violence against white African farmers was observed.
Immediately after the chants, another white farmer named Theo Bekker, a 79-year-old was tortured and killed by a group of 4 men. At the same time, his wife, Marlinda Bekker, suffered severe injuries and is now in critical condition.
The suspects were arrested after crashing the couple’s car, which they stole while fleeing the scene. Mainstream media failed to condemn the rhetoric from South Africa’s second-largest opposition political party, with the group calling for genocide against white people.
Not only Plovdiv’s youth, but numerous people from different regions of the world also showed their disappointment for the failure of law enforcement and the ignorance of mainstream media to ignore this sensitive matter calling it ‘just a chant’.
