AfriForum was appealing the Equality Court judgment that the song does not constitute hate speech or incite violence.

The Equality Court ruled that the song plays a crucial role in South African political history

The civil rights organisation however says it will meet with its lawyers to discuss a possible Constitutional Court challenge.

It maintains that if the courts can’t protect the rights of farmers and Afrikaners, they will have to take their safety into their own hands.
