Media Statement

BLF (Black First Land First) Limpopo congratulate the class of 2016 matriculants.

The BLF in Limpopo joins the people of the Limpopo province to congratulate the hard working and successful 2016 matriculants announced by MEC for basic education in S.A.

BLF Limpopo would also like to congratulate the top achiever of 2016; Karabo Moremi and the Vhembe district for always putting Blacks in their district first; specifically Mbilwi Tshivhase and Thengwe schools.

As BLF Limpopo we do not celebrate the 62% as the best results. Our provincial department got more than R27bn in budget to improve the standard of education in the province but it seems like the opposite happened. With almost half of the provincial budget allocated to Limpopo Department of Basic Education but with this poor performance, BLF has noted that the problem isn’t with the educators, students nor the Department of Basic Education in Limpopo rather within the Provincial Leadership of the ruling party.

Internal factions in the province have put MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe’s department under administration. BLF has also noted that the road to the ruling party’s national conference is the reason why Mr Kgetjepe was neutralized in his department were looting by the provincial leadership of the ruling party is the order of the day.
The premier of Limpopo puts his interests(tenders) first than the people of this province.

BLF Limpopo cannot allow political factions destroy the future of our black society anymore,Greediness and Selfishness in this Province has compromised the citizens enough. The ruling party has also lost its morals and values. Statistically since the Premier took over the region ,the youth unemployment rate in the province has grown by 30% whilst the pensioners in the leadership are getting richer by the day.

BLF Limpopo demands that the Premier and the Limpopo MEC of Basic Education to account for this Province’s poor performance in 2016 due to their differences.

Black First Land First demands that the leadership of the ruling party in the Province to put Black People First and Land First before their tenders.

BLF REMEMBERS ONKGOPOTSE ABRAM TIRO – TRUE MARTYR OF THE AZANIAN REVOLUTION

BLF REMEMBERS ONKGOPOTSE ABRAM TIRO – TRUE MARTYR OF THE AZANIAN REVOLUTION

Onkgopotse Abram Tiro was born in 1947. He was one of the main leaders instrumental in the creation of the black power movement in South Africa. His legacy serves as an inspiration for the June 16, 1976 Soweto uprisings. To this end he politically groomed Tsietsi Mashinini who later became one of the great leaders of the June 16, 1976 Soweto uprisings. During his historic speech at the 1972 university graduation ceremony Tiro boldly condemned the white supremacist bantu education system as being anti black. He was consequently expelled from university. He then taught black history at a school in Soweto and thus raised the revolutionary consciousness of his students. On this 42nd anniversary of the assassination of Tiro by the apartheid regime via a parcel bomb in Botswana on 1 February 1974 – BLF remembers this true martyr of the Azanian Revolution by reissuing the speech he delivered at the graduation ceremony of University of the North on 29 April 1972.
