The HAWKS have today informed BLF that the case of corruption opened against President Ramaphosa has been registered and allocated an investigator; furthermore BLF has the name of the Captain assigned to the case. BLF was informed that at this stage of the investigation the case is an inquiry into the allegations which will be investigated and formal charges laid.

BLF has recommended to the police that they provide weekly updates so as to allow BLF to monitor the progress of the investigation. The case opened by BLF against President Ramaphosa is of corruption related to the CR17 donations.

BLF will also forward the investigating Officer further evidence of corruption related to the CR17 donations such as the acquisition of the Phumelela horse racing turf and betting business by the Oppenheimer family which is one of the donors to CR17 campaign.

BLF shall be monitoring this case closely. In the event the NPA doesn’t prosecute President Ramaphosa then BLF will undertake a private prosecution route.

The only way to end corruption is by starting from the top.

BLF condemns Ramaphosa police for violence against Artists

BLF condemns Ramaphosa police for violence against Artists

BLF condemns in the strongest possible terms the police brutality against peaceful protestors in KZN. Artists have been starved by Ramaphosa as he has awarded all the covid19 relief funds to his White Monopoly Capital friends. What must the artists eat?

Community leaders in black communities across SA have highlighted the increasing heavy-handed approach adopted by police under the Ramaphosa administration towards black protesters. BLF notes that while Ramaphosa has allowed white farmers to close national roads without shooting them with rubber bullets, protesting black artists are attacked by the police just like the Marikana workers.

BLF stands with the artists. We ask where is the R500 billion?

BLF mourns the passing of Advocate Simelane

BLF mourns the passing of Advocate Simelane

Black First Land First (BLF) is shattered by the passing on of Advocate Victor Mdelwa Simelane, a long time friend of our movement. We received the news of his passing on the day of his funeral. As a revolutionary movement committed to black liberation, we had a trusted friend in Advocate Simelane in his quiet manner. Many black professionals promise to assist our movement, very few actually do step up when the need arises. Advocate Simelane was one of those few who did step up when we were in need the most.

It was Advocate Simelane who took over the case of the BLF26 who were arrested as a consequence of the then Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, choosing to shield the corruption of the likes of Johann Rupert. The state had used the case against the BLF 26 to harass them. It was through his legal acumen and commitment to justice that the case was in fact thrown out of court. He attended to our case for over two years, doing it pro bono and being there at every hearing. BLF had a tower of strength, a shoulder to cry on in Advocate Simelane.

We shall always remember our friends at the hour of need. We can only repay such loyalty with an unwavering committment to the liberation of our people.

Hamba kahle Comrade Simelane, the people’s lawyer!
