Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Hello, any South Africans here?

Hello, I need help from any South Africans out there.

I am in a mens' chorus here in the States.

Is "We are Marching to Pretoria" a problematic song these days?

We would certainly not want inadvertently to sing a pro-apartheid song.

Thank you.

1. Not Sith Ifrican

as the Afrikaans would call it but to the best of my knowledge that was sung by the British against the Boers. As such I don't really see what apartheid has to do with it.

Anti - German/Dutch maybe but thats a different matter

2. I'm a former South African

and I always thought it was a British soldier's song dating from the Boer War. It's nothing to do with Apartheid.
