1913 parliament gave whites 87% of stolen land

BLF President Andile Mngxitama

On 19 June 1913, the whites only South African parliament gave whites 87% of the land stolen from blacks.

26 years after “democracy”, a black dominated parliament has failed to return the land.

Black First Land First (BLF) warns again: there shall be no Land Expropriation Without Compensation. It was an empty promise by politicians who wanted the votes of the landless.

Blacks are on their own!

BLF asks SABC to respect memory of Tsietsi Mashinini

BLF asks SABC to respect memory of Tsietsi Mashinini

Black First Land First (BLF) was shocked to see the announcement that today the SABC will broadcast a lecture by Ronald Lamola of the African National Congress (ANC) on Tsietsi Mashinini. We wrote to the political editor of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) to object to this attack on the memory of Tsietsi Mashinini who had refused to join the ANC for clear ideological reasons. Lamola and the ANC have no right to defile the memory of Tsietsi Mashinini and try to recruit him from the grave.

BLF calls on the SABC to be a public broadcaster, not a state party organ of propaganda. Below is the WhatsApp note by BLF sent to the SABC yesterday, to which we received no response:

“Mr Mbeje; afternoon. My name is Andile Mngxitama President of a black consciousness organisation called Black First Land First (BLF). I write now in connection with the Tsietsi Mashinini lecture to be delivered by the Minister of Justice tomorrow through the SABC. It is not clear who the organiser of the lecture is.

We believe its unethical for a minister from a political party which was rejected by Tsietsi to give a lecture on him. This strikes us as an attack on the memory of Tsietsi Mashinini. We have no doubt that Min Lamola will distort the truth about Tsietsi. Lamola has no knowledge about Tsietsi so what gives him the authority to give a lecture on him?

In the interest of balance and in defence of the truth we ask that people who know what Tsietsi stood for and why he was murdered, people like Prof Itumeleng Mosala or Lybon Mabasa be engaged to respond to the lecture.

I was in Soweto when Kwame Toure called to report the murder of Tsietsi Mashinini. I stayed with Khotso Seatlholo. Its my duty to defend the memory of Tsietsi.
I would be happy to respond or assist in anyway possible to maintain balance and the truth about Tsietsi.

Thanks”

End the war on black women!

End the war on black women!

Tshegofatso Pule (Left) and Naledi Phangindawo (right)

The gruesome killings of two black women, 26-year-old Naledi Phangindawo and 28-year-old Tshegofatso Pule who were allegedly murdered by their respective boyfriends in the past week, is symptomatic of an ongoing war in the black community.

We note that every year an average of 4000 black women are murdered; 1000 black children are murdered; and 15 000 black men are murdered. Until we realise that we are in the midst of a war zone, we won’t make progress. Blacks are dying in South Africa.

The black man has been rendered a subhuman species who violates and kills without hesitation. Black First Land First (BLF) calls on black men to end this war on black women and on themselves. We further call for increased awareness, education and restorative justice to address the violence in the black communities, especially gender based violence.

Black men are urged to dialogue amongst themselves and pledge their commitment to the black community to end the war.

The war against women oppression must be won. May the deaths of Naledi and Tshegofatso not be in vain.
