BLF condemns Afriforum’s interference in black affairs

Black First Land First (BLF) has warned that the incident involving Mama Grace Mugabe is going to be highjacked by land thieves, colonialists and extreme racists. Today we learnt from the media that Afriforum – which is the representatives of land thieves in South Africa, which has not paid for reparations, which has not acknowledged genocide against black people – has offered its lawyer Gerrie Nel, who we know was also an apartheid cooperative, to provide so called legal assistance to the black child who was disciplined by Mama Grace Mugabe.

BLF is clear that this has nothing to do with justice – with so called legal assistance for the black child who was disciplined by Mama Grace Mugabe. Afriforum never said anything about black children and black people who were killed on farms such as in Coligny or about those who were stuffed in coffins, or those who were being attacked in KFC and other areas by by land thieves.

What this is about is the land question. This fight by Afriforum is to try to defend, avenge and revenge those who lost land in Zimbabwe. White people in Zimbabwe stole land there. President Mugabe took the land back and gave it to its rightful owners. This battle is about trying to punish the Zimbabwean leadership for returning land to its people.

We say again we stand with Comrade Grace Mugabe and call on all black people who are involved in this matter to find a black solution. Do not find yourself on the side of the oppressors in the conflicts that can be solved by ourselves as black people.

Izwelethu!

BLF supports Zama Zama march today

The artisanal miners otherwise known as the Zama Zama miners will today at 10am march to the Department of Mineral Resources and Economic Affairs (DMR) in Pretoria.

Black First Land First (BLF) President Andile Mngxitama and members will join the march, which includes the Mining Affected Communities United in Action (Macua) and Kimberley Artisanal Mine Workers (KAMW), in solidarity with the miners. BLF believes that the Zama Zama miners are the legitimate owners of the South African minerals. White monopoly capital has no right to mine on our stolen land.

The march will be conducted under the following details:

BLF rejects non apology of City Press

Black First Land First (BLF) has seen the so called apology published by the City Press after losing the appeal for writing fake news about a BLF event. City Press has lied about what Professor Malikane said at the BLF Blacks in Dialogue (BiD) event in April 2017.

We laid a complaint with the Press Ombud who found in favour of BLF. Instead of apologizing as ordered, City Press then appealed the Ruling of the Press Ombud. However, City Press lost again when their application for leave to appeal was dismissed by the Appeals Panel on 19 July 2017 via Judge Ngoepe. But City Press has been undeterred for three weeks – as it refused to comply with the Ruling of the Press Ombud ordering it to apologize to Prof Malikane.

BLF had subsequently written to the Press Ombud to get City Press to comply with the Ombud’s Ruling. However, instead of complying City Press has yet again written a fake apology. BLF rejects this apology and has written to the Press Ombud to get due compliance from City Press.

City Press, Media24, AmaBhungane and Daily Maverick regularly write fake news in defence of white monopoly capital. BLF has lodged another complaint with the Press Ombud about fake stories by these bulldogs of white monopoly capital. We know that they don’t do journalism – they do white propaganda.

BLF demands a proper apology. We reject the non apology written in the same modus operandi of fake news that these outlets specialize in. its clear why AmaBhungane and Daily Maverick are running away from a debate with BLF. They know they will be exposed!
