BLF-WC opens case of fraud & corruption against DA led Mossel Bay Municipality

Black First Land First – Western Cape (BLF-WC) opened a case of fraud and corruption at the Mossel Bay SAPS station, against the DA-led Mossel Bay municipality, in relation to the fraudulent mishandling of houses that rightfully belong to community members.

The main culprit is thoroughbred white racist, Riaan Pienaar, the Director of housing in the DA-led municipality that has been terrorising black people since the early 90s. Pienaar is involved in the gross misconduct of the housing department that has led to unlawful evictions of black people from their homes, undue transfers of RDP houses, withholding of title deeds and the illegal re-selling of houses to fill the pockets of individuals in the department.

Members of the Kwanonqaba community had laid several complaints and charges at the Mossel Bay Municipality, the SAPS and with an ANC councillor regarding the fraudulent activities, however their complaints fell on deaf ears. It is clear that there is bipartisan corruption taking place and that the likes of Pienaar in the municipality’s housing department, only seek to exploit the already oppressed black community to enrich themselves.

BLF-WC leadership met with Brigadier Jantjies of the Mossel Bay SAPS, to stipulate a clear action plan and he has agreed to conclude the existing cases within 14 and 30 days respectively. Brigadier Jantjies will investigate the conduct and inaction of the SAPS in Kwanonqaba as well as ensure that the new case of fraud and corruption against the Mossel Bay Municipality gets the necessary priority that it demands. Due to the seriousness of the matter, he will also deliver bi-weekly feedback.

BLF-WC berates the bipartisan corruption orchestrated by the DA and the ANC to simply ensure poor black people remain landless and homeless. We also condemn the complicity of the SAPS in Kwanonqaba.

BLF-WC will monitor these matters, add further cases as they arise from the community of Kwanonqaba and provide regular updates, ensuring that a swift positive conclusion is reached.

The case number as received is CAS 122/3/2018.

Drop all charges and release all political prisoners now!

Drop all charges and release all political prisoners now!

Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) condemns the apartheid tactics employed by white monopoly capital and its agents in government to disrupt the struggle for Free Decolonised Education and against real corruption.

We call for all the charges against the Fees Must Fall and other political activists – including Mcebo Dlamini, Bonginkosi Khanyile, and Masixole Mlandu from WITS, DUT and UCT who fought for free decolonized education – to be dropped now. Moreover, we have the situation of comrades like Amla Monageng who are under house arrest and others who are serving an eight years term of imprisonment that needs urgent attention.

We also have 26 BLF leaders (BLF26) who have since 18 July 2016 been facing charges on false allegations of public violence, trespassing, kidnapping and intimidation. To this end the BLF26 had engaged in protest action at the Office of the former Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, which resulted in the said members being arrested. The protest was against the white monopoly capital (WMC) apartheid era corruption of ABSA and others who stole R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB). BLF had vowed that it shall not stop until the entire stolen R26 billion is recovered and utilized towards the Fees Must Fall campaign and the empowerment of the black unemployed youth. While the BLF26 have appeared in court on countless occasions, their trial has not yet commenced.

The APLA soldiers languishing in jail, for fighting against the corruption of land thieves, must also be released. It is unacceptable that 24 years into democracy our gallant APLA soldiers remain behind bars while the apartheid mass murderers like F.W de Klerk and Adrian Vlok freely walk the streets of this country.

All these political leaders who fought against WMC corruption and for free decolonized education are nor criminals. They should not be subjected to the anti black justice system that renders them guilty before being proven innocent. We call on President Ramaphosa to grant these comrades a general amnesty.

BLF-SM calls on everyone to rally behind our call regarding the FMF leaders, APLA liberation fighters and BLF26 It is a dire time for black people – unity is of outmost importance.

We say to President Ramaphosa, unless our call to drop all charges and the granting of general amnesty is heeded BLF-SM shall bring this country to a total shutdown!

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

Today, 29 September 2017 at 13:00, Black First Land First (BLF) will open several criminal charges against members of the South African Police Services (SAPS) at the Hillbrow Police Station .

Our movement had a successful peaceful march against the criminal conduct of KPMG yesterday in Johannesburg that concluded with us handing in our Memorandum of Demands to the auditing firm.

However, at the end of the march and while our members were inside a park in Braamfontein, the police started shooting at us with rubber bullets, suddenly and without warning. 27 members were shot, mostly at the back and at close rage, including the BLF President Andile Mngxitama and the Treasurer General Thandiswa Yaphi. Seven BLF members suffered serious bodily injuries and consequently had to be taken to hospital for medical attention.

Our members were shot after white policemen arrived in a private vehicle, being a blue BMW 320i, and instructed the police to open fire. We believe that these are agents of white monopoly capital which has captured the state. BLF is not surprised by the unprovoked attack on our movement. White monopoly capital is digging in and using everything and everyone in its power to try and break the momentum towards revolutionary outbreak.

BLF will also do the following:

1. Demand the suspension from duty of the responsible police officers until the investigations are complete.
2. Write a letter to the Minister of Police asking for action to be taken.
3. Write to the Acting Police Commissioner to seek clarity on whether the police can shoot people with rubber bullets without good cause, without signaling a warning at peaceful demonstrators, and at close range.
4. Lay a complaint of police brutality with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID).
6. Consider instituting civil claims against the SAPS and the responsible police officers.

Criminal charges will be laid against the police under the following details:

Date: 29 September 2017 (today)
Time: 13:00
Venue: Hilbrow Police Station, 1 Clarendon Place, Hillbrow, Johannesburg

BLF has given KPMG seven days to respond to our memorandum, failing which BLF will institute further action against it. We will continue to expose and fight white monopoly capital corruption. At the same time, BLF will not allow the police to be used against our people.

BLF is more than determined to push the struggle for Radical Economic Transformation to its logical conclusion.

BLF High Treason case against Magda Wierzycka moved to Sandton

BLF High Treason case against Magda Wierzycka moved to Sandton

The Black First Land First (BLF) case of High Treason against the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Sygnia, Magda Wierzycka and three others, opened at Hilbrow Police Station has been moved to the Sandton Police Station. The case relates to the bribe offered to President Zuma by Magda Wierzycka who is the richest woman in South Africa. President Zuma refused the state capture attempt by white monopoly capital to buy him with R2 billion. Now this money is being offered to certain Members of Parliament (MPs) to vote against President Zuma Tommorrow.

Speaker of the National Assembly Baleka Mbete has ruled this afternoon that a no confidence vote against President Zuma tomorrow can proceed via secret ballot. BLF is consulting with its lawyers to consider interdicting the implementation of the Speaker’s ruling which has left the National Assembly open to be bought. The Constitutional Court has warned about this possibility.

The case number against Magda Wierzycka is 255/8/2017. BLF will follow this matter to the end.
