Stop the persecution of Advocate Mkhwebane

Stop the persecution of Advocate Mkhwebane

The name of Black First Land First (BLF) has been mobilsed in the kangaroo court going on in parliament against the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. The Section 194 Enquiry is calculated to muzzle the investigation on the corruption and unlawfull conduct of President Ramaphosa on the Phala Phala scandal. Furthermore, the Public Protector is being crucified for finding that ABSA must pay back the money stolen from the people of South Africa. Also her recommendation for the transformation of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) into an institution that serves the people, frightened and enraged the Stellenbosch mafia which controls the South African economy and policies around the management of it.

It is instructive that the courts which ruled against her ABSA findings, didn’t get into the merits of her findings; and based their decision on the technicalities of ABSA not being consulted but the State President and BLF (the complainant) being consulted instead,

It’s not a secret that under Advocate Thuli Madonsela the Office of the Public Protector was a bulldog of white monopoly capital, the primary enemy of BLF. It’s further no secret that Johann Rupert thanked Adv Madonsela with a professorship and a cushy job at his University of Stellenbosch.

Parliament must stop the witch-hunt through its bogus hearings.The courts have ruled for the return of the Public Protector to her job. She must be allowed to go back and conclude her work and her tenure.

BLF takes strong exception at its name being dragged like this without being called to provide its own version on the matter.

Failure to unite is to betray Biko

Failure to unite is to betray Biko

Steve Biko died literally in his quest for the unity of the liberation movement.

The apartheid government feared nothing more than the power that could come with black unity. Biko was in talks with the exiled ANC. This has been confirmed by Thabo Mbeki who was a close advisor of O.R. Tambo. Reverend Mayson had a small aeroplane in which Biko was to be flown to Botswana and back under the radar.

As part of this quest for unity Biko risked all and defied the apartheid banning order and drove all the way to Cape Town to meet with the leader of the New Unity Movement, Neville Alexander.

It is possible that the apartheid spy Craig Williamson was privy to these moves through his closeness to O.R. Tambo. The apartheid government panicked and murdered Biko.

We the followers of Biko are betraying his mission by failing to unite. The country is going back to whites in 2024. Unity is a matter of survival not a luxury anymore, and we are running out of time.

Let’s honor Biko by doing the right thing. Let’s form the Azanian Front!

The death of Elizabeth must bring justice to the colonised

The death of Elizabeth must bring justice to the colonised

The death of the British Queen must usher in a new era where justice is brought to the colonised people. It’s the British crown that has created hell on earth for black people through its brutal murderous project of colonialism. As late as the 1950s the British troops were en masse killing Africans who fought for land. The genocide of the Kenyan people and mass murder of the Mau Mau freedom fighters bears testimony to this.. They were tortured, castrated and murdered because they wanted freedom from the British crown.

South Africa continues to suffer from the effects of British colonialism. The crown of the Queen is decorated with diamonds stolen from South Africa. The vaults of the Bank of England are filled to the brim with gold stolen from our country.

Under Thabo Mbeki we saw massive transference of South African wealth to the London Stock Exchange. The colonial project has been kept alive under the reign of the Queen.

Now we call on the British people to do the right thing and return the stolen wealth and pay reparations for colonialism.

BLF denounces dismissal of PUTCO workers demanding wage increase

BLF denounces dismissal of PUTCO workers demanding wage increase

Black First Land First (BLF) is appalled by the mass firing of workers intended by PUTCO in response to their righteous demand for a wage increase.

We stand in solidarity with the PUTCO workers, and call on all the progressive sectors of society to support the struggle of these workers.

Instead of engaging with the unions and other stakeholders to address the demands at hand, PUTCO has unleashed the brutality of the police on the workers. We ask the SAPS to not shoot or harm innocent workers striking for a living wage. Workers cannot be held hostage by police brutality.

BLF calls on the government to intervene immediately to avert the dismissal of these workers. PUTCO gets government subsidies but fails to resolve labour disputes and refuses to accede to the legitimate demands of workers. This is intolerable.

BLF says, PUTCO, stop the firing the workers. Let them have their wage increase!
