South African Politician: 'Kill Whites and Their Children, Women and Pets'
President of Black First Land First (BLF) calls for white genocide
A South African political party leader has urged his followers to kill white people including their women and children, according to reports.
Speaking at a rally in Potchefstroom near Johannesburg, Andile Mngxitama, the president of Black First Land First (BLF) made the horrific orders to his followers
"For each one person that is being killed by the taxi industry, we will kill five white people," he cries as the crowd cheers.
'For every one black person, we will kill five white people," he continued.
"You kill one of us we will get five of you. We'll kill their women; we'll kill their children, we'll kill anything we find in our way."
Mngxitama then addresses the angry crowd:
"For every one of them, we'll kill how many?"
And they chant back:
"For every one of them?
They return, "Five."
As the back and forth chants continue, Mngxitama then urges them to kill dogs and cats owned by white people.
He shouts: "We'll kill their children, we'll kill their women, we'll kill their dogs, we'll kill their cats, we'll kill anything."
Mngxitama has caused outrage, but in acknowledgment, he insists that he comments were taken out of context claiming he was responding to comments recently made by billionaire Johann Rupert regarding the taxi industry.
Rupert, an advocate of the taxi industry, commented on the far-left EFF party in a recent interview with Power FM stating 'those red guys come' they should remember he had his 'own army,' City Press reports.
Chairman of the South African Black Taxi Association and friend, Jabu Mabuza, was one of the first partners in the business, according to Times Live.

Rupert, who talked to a laughing audience at the radio station's Chairman's conference, was not referring to Mngxitama's party, but the EFF, a different left-wing group.
The EFF took objection after the comments, then claiming Rupert was inciting violence, which in turn, Mngxitama attempted to exploit at his rally dangerously.
Mngxitama insisted this frightened him in an interview on Tuesday with SABC News, Johann Rupert sits there with absolute arrogance claiming he has a private militia that he can unleash.'
Rupert did not mention a private militia or violence.
Mngxitama told the broadcaster that Rupert displayed insensitivity with his comments because everyone knows that people get killed in South Africa's taxi industry
He also claimed that BLF would be in parliament by 2019.
Mngxitama's party could lose their registration if the complaint made to the Independent Electoral Commission finds him guilty.
Opposing capitalism, Mngxitama presents himself as Marxist revolutionary but has been accused of racism countless times.
ANC spokesman Zizi Kodwa, for South Africa's leading party, stated:
"The rant about 'killing white people' shows an extent of [Mngxitama's] ignorance to the history of this country," News 24 reported.
The ANC urged South African Commission for Human Rights to examine the remarks made.
