Black First Land First Student Movement (BLF-SM) thanks BLF president, Andile Mngxitama, for his unfailing commitment to the liberation of black people. This comes after a very successful and thought-provoking engagement on Saturday between Mngxitama and the president of the people, Jacob Zuma, at the Blacks in Dialogue event hosted by BLF as part of the Black Caucus.
We regconise Mngxitama – the former leader of the Azanian Student Movement (Azasm), the mentee of Kgotso Seatlholo and president of our glorious movement – for his uncompromising commitment to black liberation.
Mngxitama has rejected assimilation into the elite academic project and conscription into the Rupert political program. He has instead submerged himself into all strands of blackness, purely to achieve Biko’s dying wish of unity amongst the black oppressed to decimate the colonial settler and return the land to the black majority.
