He actually said Maaifoedie:
Ho ho ho! The national HQ of the ANC has issued a statement demanding I apologise for calling the ANC ‘motherfuckers’! That after my earlier FB piece explaining the origins (from Malay-Portuguese) of the old Afrikaans word maaifoedie.
Maaifoedie is a perfectably acceptable word in good company, but I explained via an old book on Afrikaans etymology that originally actually meant the same as the American swear word. I did NOT call the ANC ‘motherfuckers’. Has the ANC gone completely and utterly mad?
A few months ago I criticised the ANC for not understanding the history of the descendants of the Khoisan, and they took me to the Press Ombudsman – who laughed them out of court. The ANC really thinks the people of SA are complete imbeciles
Apparently Max Du Preez called the ANC “mother f**kers” on his facebook profile, the ANC Even remarks that “The African National Congress condemns in the strongest terms Max du Preez’s outburst today at 12:00 on a public social space, FaceBook, which is also accessible to children, to curse ANC leaders by calling them: "You motherf*ckers", as totally unacceptable.“
They went on in a statement to blabber a bunch of useless slur about how Du Preez was a journalist and so forth, blablabla. The usual ANC blabber.
I guess saying someone is sleeping with their mother is worse in the ANC’s eyes than one of their leaders calling for the killing of white people and the president of the ANC singing “bring my machine gun”.
