Today, Black First Land First (BLF) opened a criminal case against defenders of white monopoly capital in the ANC faction of Cyril Ramaphosa (CR17) at the Orange Farm police station. The case number is 113/01/2018. The police and the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) must infer on evidence presented by the viral footage.
Furthermore, we expect top priority action to see that Thabang Setona and Nicholas Mthembu go to prison.
A BLF delegation, led by the National Treasurer General, Thandiswa Yaphi, visited all the victims of the assault by Ramaphosa’s thugs. The visit was to establish the extent of their injuries and follow the necessary process of opening a criminal case.
BLF carried out its own investigation and has already established that police had not only stood still as the thugs committed a crime, they lured BLF members in a bakkie to an inevitable trap to be violated with sticks, kicks, fists and insults.
BLF is offended by the (in)action of SAPS members on the day. We demand an immediate suspension and subsequent enquiry of all officers deployed at the scene. To this end, BLF will write to the Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, and lay a complaint with the IPID.
BLF will continue to call for “Peace Amongst Blacks and War Against The Enemy.” The futile anger vented towards fellow blacks must be condemned. It should be directed to those who stole our land.
