Free State - An out of court agreement on the singing of the song “Dubula iBhunu” (Shoot the Boer) was made a court order in the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Thursday.
On Tuesday, the ANC agreed to drop its appeal against a court order which in effect bans singing of the song.
The African National Congress signed the agreement with civil rights group Afriforum, and the Transvaal Agricultural Union (Tau SA).
The agreement reads: “The parties have agreed that Afriforum and Tau SA will abandon the equality court order and the ANC and (former ANC Youth League president Julius) Malema agree to abandon the appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal”.
SCA President Lex Mpati made the mediation agreement an order of court. - Sapa
