Andile Lungisa was punished for supporting Jacob Zuma

Andile Lungisa was punished for supporting Jacob Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) believes that Andile Lungisa is a victim of political persecution. The sentence doesn’t fit the crime at all. The circumstances of the alleged crime in the eyes of objective observers would indicate self defence in a highly charged environment.

Lungisa is punished for supporting Radical Economic Transformation (RET) and President Zuma. This sentence amounts to abuse of the judiciary to further political ends.

Ironically, in the same week that Andile Lungisa starts his unjustified jail time, a white criminal who is killing the rhino to sell its horns was allowed to walk. A white farmer from Mpumalanga in Middleburg was fined a mere R10 000 for being guilty of selling 5 rhino horns worth R175 000.

Deon Cornelius is white therefore he can walk but Andile Lungisa must go to jail. The rhino is an endangered species. Black poachers are regularly shot on sight and killed, but a white man pays only R10 000 and walks.

Another case that shows that Lungisa’s sentence is political is how former Blue Bulls rugby player Jacobus “Bees” Roux was allowed to murder a black policeman and then walk.

In 2010 when Metro police officer Sergeant Ntshimane Johannes Mogale stopped Roux and found him drunk, he resisted arrest, attacked the policeman and beat him to death. He offered the family of the murdered cop R750 000 blood money and the court let him walk a free man. This happened in 2011.

Let’s repeat. A white rugby player murdered a black policeman and paid money to his family and was allowed to walk. Andile Lungisa murdered no one. Andile Lungisa is a victim of the Stellenbosch agenda which paid Cyril Ramaphosa R1 billion to steal the ANC conference so that he can become president.

We stand with Andile Lungisa. Our position is that this persecution is nothing but political. It’s an attempt to intimidate those who believe in RET.

Ramaphosa, Hands Off the Matjhabeng 139 farms

Ramaphosa, Hands Off the Matjhabeng 139 farms

Cyril Ramaphosa has now allowed Eskom to annex 139 farms of the Matjhabeng Municipality. This is expropriation without compensation of land that must be given to the landless majority. Eskom is being prepared for privatization and handing over to creditors and friends. This means that the 139 farms would soon be taken by Cyril Ramaphosa’s CR17 campaign donors and the likes of China. Eskom is being used to strip national assets to be parcelled off to friends and business partners.

Eskom is a state entity. Coal is a God given free commodity. Coal mining operations in South Africa are paid for by the state. Therefore, electricity should be free for household use.

Households consume only 30% of the total energy produced by Eskom. Selling electricity for household use is nothing but daylight mugging of the people. Now the excuse of debt on a service which is already being paid for by the people is used to steal the land of the poor.

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on Ramaphosa to stay out of the land of the poor. We also want to warn Eskom‘s prospective buyers that they must know that the land belongs to the people, and so too does Eskom. Eskom must stop irritating us and go after the R5 billion it has given to white monopoly capital by “mistake”.

Historic criminal case against evictions opened against Mzwandile Masina

Historic criminal case against evictions opened against Mzwandile Masina

Today after a lost docket and refusal to register an unlawful evictions case, the police finally opened the case. Black First Land First (BLF) has been assisting the victim of unlawful evictions by Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina in the Duduza settlement in Thembisa. Masina has no court order and is in contravention of the Covid-19 lockdown regulations with regards to the evictions.

The police tried to protect Masina by disappearing the docket of the first case opened on 29 August 2020. Then on 2nd September 2020 the same case was opened but the police refused yet again to register the case. Today the President of BLF accompanied the victims of the unlawful actions and insisted that BLF would not leave until a case number is given. Eventually the police did find the second docket, which they also had said was missing, and then registered the case.

This is a historic development because unlawful evictions have not been prosecuted despite the PIE Act explicitly making them criminal offences. BLF shall monitor the progress in the case. In the event that the NPA refuses to prosecute Masina, then the route of private prosecution shall be followed. This shall send a clear message against municipalities that brutalize the poor.

Ramaphosa allow Ace Magashule to help Zimbabwe

Ramaphosa allow Ace Magashule to help Zimbabwe

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on Ramaphosa to give the SG of ANC, Ace Magashule, access to state aircraft. We call on Ramaphosa to stop his nonsense with the opposition parties and take the task of ending the Zimbabwean crisis seriously.

Ace Magashule is trying to help the country and he is being vilified by a stupid President. Half of Zimbabwe is in SA right now, and being used by white monopoly capital (WMC) to distort the labour market and burden the public sector because of a worsening economic and political crisis in Zim. This debacle is threatening the South African societal stability, yet President Ramaphosa jumps when the noise poodles of the racist Democratic Alliance barks.

Ramaphosa must designate a military aircraft specially for Ace to travel as and when he wants to be in Zimbabwe.

Let’s stop this nonsense and stupidity and save Zimbabwe
