Steve Hofmeyr, a proud supporter of right-wing politics and South Africa’s legendary musician, has defiantly defended his threatening comments about killing those who follow Phumzile Van Damme and Zindzi Mandela to “take the land”.

Why is Steve Hofmeyr in legal trouble?

The Afrikaner musician got himself — as per usual — into hot water for, in his defence, trying to ‘educate’ us about the role of a public servant in society.

The star’s comments came in the same week Van Damme and Mandela made headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Why did Hofmeyr target Van Damme and Mandela?

Van Damme, who is the DA’s shadow minister of communications, got involved in a scuffle with a white family over allegations of racism. She has remained adamant on the fact that her decision to punch the man who allegedly made racist remarks against her, was in self-defence.

Van Damme has since threatened to lay charges against the family and, for now, without the CCTV footage released to either confirm or disprove her claims, it is a case of he-say, she-say.

Mandela, on the other hand, also got herself in deep trouble for the comments she made about “Apartheid Apologists”, including the hashtag, #TheLandisOurs, in her controversial tweet

The Nelson Mandela Foundation has since distanced itself from the whole situation, while opposition parties, including the DA, have called for her head to be lined up on the chopping block.

“I’m just teaching South Africa” – Hofymeyr

There is no scripture that supports the musician’s ‘unique’ definition of what a public servant is in society. Instead, Hofmeyr’s comments may have landed him in big legal trouble since the ANC, in response, issued a notice of intent to lay criminal charges against the local star.

Seemingly under pressure from all of the backlash he received for publishing such a tweet, Hofmeyr came out in an attempt to clarify what he meant.

In his defence, the actions of Van Damme and Mandela somehow compelled him to make this a teachable moment for the country.

The nonchalant reaction to the seriousness of the matter proves that Hofmeyr could not give to polonies about the consequences he may have to face for his actions.
