The Economic Freedom Fighters has again called for the removal of Die Stem from the National Anthem in its Heritage Day message.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi on Monday also called on the government to remove apartheid and colonial statues along with Die Stem.
“These symbols perpetuate the comfort of racists and white supremacy,” Ndlozi said in a party statement.
Ndlozi said the party joined hands with fellow South Africans in celebrating Heritage Day, and repeated the call for land expropriation without compensation through the Constitution.
“The most important heritage upon which all culture is based, is the land,” Ndlozi said.
He added that the continent should embrace the language of Kiswahili for the purposes of “continental unity”.
“Let us take pride in our heritage,” Ndlozi finished.
