BLF sends condolences to the Bushiri Family

Our movement, Black First Land First (BLF) from South Africa, sends its condolences to the family of Prophet and Prophetess Bushiri. We as a movement share in the grief of the family and the celebration of the life of Saint Israela Bushiri.

As believers we accept the Will of the Lord and strengthen our faith for we know the Lord is the ultimate comforter.

We note the role of the South African government in creating the conditions that led to the loss of the young life. It’s because of the senseless and cruel persecution of Prophet and Prophetess Bushiri that timely medical care was denied to the child.

We pray for the comfort of the family and for justice to be done.

All is well.

Hamba Kahle Comrade Busiswa Futshane

Hamba Kahle Comrade Busiswa Futshane

Black First Land First (BLF) mourns the passing of one of its committed members, Comrade Busiswa Futshane, from Khayelitsha Cape Town. She was an active member who undertook all her tasks with the required seriousness and demanded the same kind of commitment to the revolution from the rest of the membership.

Comrade Busisiwe has passed on after a lengthy period of illness. BLF recognises her selflessness. Her dream was to see black people liberated through the return of our land.

BLF sends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of our late comrade. On our part, we commit to continue struggling until the ideals she so much cherished are realized.

Parktown Boys murdered a black boy?

Parktown Boys murdered a black boy?

The news that young Enoch Mpianzi was put on a self made raft and left into a natural stream or river without a life jacket, during an orientation program in Brits, is shocking beyond belief. If this is true then it’s nothing short of gross negligence which invokes the historical race question.

Would the school put a white boy without a life jacket into such a perilous situation without the knowledge of his swimming capabilities? In fact no one should be put in harm’s way that way.

As an organization that puts black people’s lives first and in the context of the historical reality that black lives don’t matter in a society organized by white power; its hard for us not to conclude that the young boy Mpianzi died because he is black.

The Parktown Boys’ High School, where 13 year old Mpianzi was grade 8 pupil, must take full responsibility for their criminal conduct that caused his death. Their unbecoming conduct amounts to gross negligence at the very least and murder in the historical context.

If this was indeed about team building and group activity surely the team members and those in charge will notice if anyone is in trouble. There are so many other questions that this unfortunate situation poses, including:

i. Why was the absence of Mpianzi not detected by his fellow team members?
ii. Where were the lifeguards?
iii. When was the headcount done?
iv, Exactly when was it discovered that Mpianzi was missing?

Black lives must matter in South Africa. For far too long we speak in hushed tones to foster false unity and collegiality. This is costly to black people. Enough is enough!

Black First Land First (BLF) shall closely monitor this unfortunate development to ensure justice is done. This was an unnecessary loss of life. We send our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mpianzi.
