Black First Land First (BLF) has done a preliminary investigation into the story written by the white monopoly capital publication, Daily Maverick, which is funded by the Oppenheimer family among other rogue funders. The result of the BLF investigation shows that the story was manufactured by Daily Maverick, with the possible assistance of Dr Makhosi Khoza. Whilst BLF could not conclusively link the conspiracy between Dr Khoza and Daily Maverick, there is a strong indication that there may have been some co-operation.
The BLF investigation revealed that the SIM card attributed to BLF is a “burner”. This is the usual so-called “pre ricad” SIM cards bought on the side of the road. The caller ID information can be edited in those SIM cards.
It’s curious why the Amabhungane linked, Scorpion investigative journalism outfit assisted in creating the fake story. Daily Maverick says two sources confirmed that the number is registered as BLF. This is a lie manufactured to create fake news. No such sources exist. Daily Maverick, although it says the number belongs to “BLF” failed to ascertain under whose name the sim was registered. The worst is that there is no evidence that the Daily Maverick and its so-called “sources” even tried to verify their claims.
The RICA process is basically as follows:
One must produce a valid identification card and proof of residence to RICA. Therefore your SIM card will have your name and address.
We know RICA did not disclose that information to Daily Maverick because it is unavailable. Nor has Daily Maverick sought such verification because it was creating a fake story.
Cynically, Daily Maverick relies on the “True Caller ID” Android app which can be edited and manipulated. Anyone can google “Caller ID spoofing”. Just to drive the point, if you run the number through the system you will see that the sim card is a “burner” or one of those unricad SIM cards you find at taxi ranks. The question is why is Daily Maverick lying?
The BLF investigation shows that Dr Khoza is earmarked to be in the leadership of the pro-white monopoly capital break away party from the ANC which is planned should Cyril Ramaphosa lose the leadership battle in December. Her role is to prepare the ground for such a break away party which will be led by Ramaphosa. The fake news by the white owned media are part of raising Dr Khoza’s public profile. The story was created to try to boost her profile as she instigates the ANC to expel her.
The role of Amabhugane and the so-called ‘Scorpions’ is to give credence to the fake stories against opponents of white monopoly capital. It seems on this one they were rather too sloppy and amateurish but they don’t care because they believe the public doesn’t question their credentials and motives and therefore they can generate as much fake news as they wish.
BLF calls on government to seriously start the process towards setting up a media tribunal.
The white owned media has turned journalism into a jungle whilst shutting down alternative sources of news and analysis such as Black Opinion.
