The attack on President Jacob Zuma has assumed new impetus after the elections. Black First Land First (BLF) had warned the public that a vote for Cyril Ramaphosa is a vote for the continuation and intensification of the attack on President Zuma.
BLF is not surprised by the court’s decision to compel the Directorate of Social Development to reveal the donors of the Jacob Zuma Foundation. The strategy of white monopoly capital is to silence Zuma through a judicial lynching. As part of this process, the criminal case being heard at the Pietermaritzburg High Court has been turned into a kangaroo court by loading it with judges that are known to be anti-Zuma.
Amabungane are the bulldogs of white monopoly capital. If they are interested in transparency why target the Jacob Zuma Foundation only? What about the FW de Klerk Foundation? What about the Mandela Foundation? Who funds OUTA?
BLF shall be submitting requests for the donors of the above organizations to be made public as per the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA). Transparency must not be used as a political weapon to silence the perceived enemies of white monopoly capital.
BLF shall be in court on the 20th of May to stand with President Zuma. We shall continue to defend black people who come under attack from land thieves and white monopoly capital by any means necessary. The process of setting up the Private Litigation Unit is also at an advanced stage.
