Kallie Kriel to answer charges of hate speech and racism laid by BLF tomorrow

Kallie Kriel to answer charges of hate speech and racism laid by BLF tomorrow

The Equality Court sitting at the Johannesburg Magistrate Court will tomorrow hear arguments on the complaint of Black First Land First (BLF) against the racist Kallie Kriel of Afriforum.

Kriel, representing the racist organization called Afriforum, will answer to a charge of hate speech amounting to racism. He is in clear contravention of section 10 of the Equality Act in that he committed hate speech by saying that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is contrary to the established international law which has been been legislated upon by South Africa (SA). Kriel has not only denied that apartheid is a crime against humanity, but he has also gone further to defend his racist, hurtful, harmful, utterances of hatred.

Afriforum does not hide the fact that it’s a pro apartheid organization. Regarding it’s mission it says, “Afriforum works to ensure that the basic prerequisites for the existance of Afrikaners are met; by acting as a credible Afrikaner interest organization…”. Moreover, it identifies itself as part of the “Solidarity movement – outside the workplace on national level to handle the impact of the current political realities facing Afrikaners…”.

Judge Mojapelo’s description of Afriforum is instructive. He found that, “Afriforum is essentially about Afrikaner interests”.

This Afrikaner organization has defended the apartheid flag; and funded legal representation (Gerrie Nel and Barry Roux) to defend convicted Afrikaner criminals (Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte) who murdered an innocent black child, Matlhomola Mosweu in 2017. Now the same Afriforum says that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is open racism. It’s the irony of ironies that the South African mainstream media, including the SABC, calls this bunch of apartheid apologists a “civil rights organization”.

BLF has asked the court to take strong action against these racists.

BLF case against Oppenheimers referred to Hawks

BLF case against Oppenheimers referred to Hawks

Photo credit: The Citizen

The criminal charges opened by Black First Land First (BLF) against the wealthiest family in South Africa (SA), the Oppenheimers, has been referred to the Hawks, almost a year after it was laid. Up until yesterday, BLF was never given an update of progress in the matter. It was not even given the most basic information, namely the case number. Without condoning the bad service delivery in this case, we are now pleased to have received the case number (OR TAMBO CAS 313/10/2018) and the name of the investigation officer, yesterday.

The case is about the criminal conduct of the Oppenheimers in that they had obtained their own private international airport terminal, called Fireblade Aviation, inside the O.R. Tambo international airport, which in turn is a national key point. Moreover the so called Fireblade Aviation conducts business aviation. This unlawful conduct emanates from the fact that the Oppenheimers went to Luthuli House to get preferential treatment. It was the African National Congress (ANC), not the government, which gave the Oppenheimers prior permission to use the terminal after both Jonathan and Nicky Oppenheimer had gone to meet them.

BLF is concerned that the revelations that the Oppenheimers funded the CR17 campaign, explains the reluctance of the police to make progress in this matter. We are also concerned that the Hawks would be under duress not to investigate the matter.

BLF wants to see this matter to it’s finality. In the event that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) chooses not to prosecute the Oppenheimer family, BLF will pursue the route of private prosecution.

BLF will continue to focus on the crimes of the powerful and to seek justice in this respect.

BLF welcomes not guilty finding of Duduzane Zuma

BLF welcomes not guilty finding of Duduzane Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the finding of not guilty of Duduzane Zuma on the charge of culpable homicide in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court, today The state did not prove that Duduzane Zuma, as the driver of a vehicle, had negligently caused the demise of Phumzile Dube.

BLF maintains its condolences to the Dube family for the loss of their daughter due to injuries sustained in the motor vehicle collision that was the subject of the court case.

The witch hunt against Duduzane must now come to an end. Ramaphosa has consistently used the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to torment political enemies. In January this year, charges based on allegations by Mcebisi Jonas that he received a suitcase of R600 000 from Duduzane at the Gupta’s home were withdrawn by the NPA. The evidence was fabricated by white monopoly capital (WMC) agents to demonize him because he is the son of President Jacob Zuma and because of his stance in favour of Radical Economic Transformation (RET). We have also not forgotten how the Hawks humiliated Duduzane by shackling his legs when he arrived in South Africa to bury his brother.

BLF is vindicated yet again. We have correctly stood in solidarity with Duduzane throughout his ordeal at the instance of the enemies of RET. BLF will continue to stand with President Zuma when he appears before the Zondo Commission next week. We are anticipating all criminal charges against him to ultimately also be dropped

BLF charges Harry Knoesen for incitement to violence, high treason and crimen injuria – affidavit

I, the undersigned, Elias Makwana , do hereby make oath and state:

1. I am the Chairperson of Black First Land First (BLF) of the Mpumalanga Province. I am also a member of the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) of BLF. I am therefore duly authorized to lay charges against Harry Knoesen and to this end depose to this founding affidavit, on behalf of BLF.

2. The Complainant is BLF. It is a Black Consciousness, Pan Afrikanist movement which embraces a Sankarist leadership ethos. BLF is registered with the Independent Electoral Commission as a political party and it is situated at situated at 0514 Klamson Towers, 5th floor, cnr of Commissioner & Von Wielligh Street, Johannesburg..

3. The accused is Harry Knoesen the leader of the National Christian Resistance Movement (NCRM) and a Co-Director of T. One. C. Trading & Projects. His contact number is 083 232 5585. He is also contactable via Whatsapp.

4. The content of this affidavit is, unless the context indicates otherwise, within my personal knowledge and to the best of my knowledge both true and correct. The submissions of law that I make are based on the advice given to me by my legal team.

5. The purpose of this affidavit is to provide evidence to the South African Police Services (SAPS) in support of the charges against Harry Knoesen of incitement to violence, high treason and crimen injuria. To this end Harry Knoesen has through his racist call to white people to join the National Christian Resistance Movement (NCRM) (of which he is the leader); and to take up arms, incited them to kill the enemy (which he intimates to be blacks). More specifically, Knoesen had unlawfully and intentionally incited white people to commit violence and to this end conduct a black genocide, so as to overthrow the South African government and replace it with an apartheid one with the aim of returning to the colonial state run and owned by whites.

6. Knoesen has committed the crime of High Treason in that he acted unlawfully and intentionally via his call to extra judicial means – through the taking up of arms – so as to return the country to white ownership and governance.

7. Knoesen, via his call, also praises apartheid which is based on colonialism. All sane people know that colonialism is the process of land dispossession and genocide against black people. It is based on the historical theft of black lands as well as the destruction of the African belief systems, values and identity and to this end the imposition of super exploitation, oppression and discrimination on blacks – including on a psychological level – that started in 1652.

8. Knoesen thus dismisses the historical and collective pain of blacks. This amounts to the offence of crimen injuria

9. Knoesen made his racist call to white people via video. In this respect, on 26 February 2019 at 15:14, he posted a video on his facebook page with the following message:

“Here it is !!!! Laat dit val waar dit moet !!!”
English Translation: “Lord it is!!!! Let it fall where it must!!!”

The video itself can be accessed via the link, https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2270982439600129&id=100000651850986

10. The said video by Knoesen conveys the further message that:

a. Black First Land First (BLF) and black people are the enemy; and
b. Blacks must be killed;

11. This is not the first time that Harry Knoesen has made himself guilty of such a call regarding the offences of incitement to violence, treason and crimen injuria. A number of other comments posted by Harry Knoesen on his Facebook wall, which constitutes the said crimes, appears hereunder:
