Evictions in Jabulani Flats, in Soweto are currently underway, undertaken by a white owned company, which is also registered as an NGO, called Madullammoho. The company received subsidies of close to R100 million from the Gauteng provincial government to build social houses. It contributed nothing in real terms.
ABSA bank is also in the mix. The bank used people’s subsidies and now they are evicting them under different guise’s including lying to the High Court. They are robbing black people with the assistance of the Gauteng Human Settlements MEC, Paul Mashatile and the DA-EFF Johannesburg metro.
The people are on their own!
Last week, BLF was invited to assist the Jabulani Flats community. The Madullammoho office shut down for the whole day when they heard BLF was coming to see them. We arrived and the doors were locked.
The NGO have stationed armed security at Jabulani with instructions to shoot to kill. Today they shot a BLF member, Nokwanda Manyu, who is also a home owner who has been evicted. Manyu is currently recovering in Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital.
BLF has opened a case of attempted murder against the guard. The security personnel hired by Madullammoho refuse to identify themselves or the name of their security company.
We call on Madullammoho to withdraw the security personnel from Jabulani Flats immediately!
We call on Mashatile to show leadership or step down. He knows the problem of evictions and harassment of people by this white rogue NGO which has been given a donation of close to a R100 million under the pretext of building houses for the people. BLF shall be lodging a case of corruption against Madullammoho and the Mashatile.
BLF calls on the ANC government to immediately declare a stop to all evictions. The so-called ‘Red Ants’ are themselves poor destitute black people who can only eat if they commit atrocities against fellow black people. The racist, capitalist, anti-black democratic rule managed by the ANC has reduced blacks to further sub-human levels of existence, where they would kill other blacks in order to survive.
BLF calls on the ANC to serve and protect the poor. End all evictions NOW! You have the power to do so. It’s the right thing to do. Furthermore the state president, Jacob Zuma, must immediately declare a moratorium on evictions on farms and in the urban areas. The poor have a right to land and housing. Blacks have a right to any piece of land in South Africa. Stop the evictions. Give Red Ants proper jobs!
BLF calls on the ‘Red Ants’ and Private Security companies to refuse to be tools in the hands of the enemies of black people. We call on those security guards to refuse blood money, to refuse money gained from the tears of others. We call on the red ants and black private securities to join the revolution, occupy land and defend the people!
The ANC government must take full responsibility for the death of landless people irrespective of whether they are red ants or not.
President Zuma stop evictions now!
