MEDIA ALERT: BLF vs FF+ at JHB High Court

BLF has defeated the racist Afriforum both at the Electoral Court and at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), dealing devastating blows to their racist hopes of stopping the black army.

The court appearance will take place under the following details:

BLF charged Johann Rupert for incitement of violence & opposed AfriForum’s complaint of hate speech

On 27 February 2019 Black First Land First (BLF), led by its President Andile Mngxitama, charged Johann Rupert at the Hillbrow Police Station, under the case number CAS 1025/2/2019, for inciting black on black violence. In this regard Rupert made the following racist utterances at or about 20h00 on Wednesday 4 December 2018 during an interview with Power FM (at 79 Central Street, Houghton Estate) hosted by the chairman of MSG Afrika, Given Mkhari:

“Jabu (Chairperson of Eskom, Jabu Mabuza) and I have one thing in common: He’s chairman of the (South African Black) Taxi Association and one of the first (partners) in Business Partners was the taxi association. So I also have my own army. When those red guys come, they’ve gonna have to remember the taxi association.”

Rupert clearly indicated that he had a long-time friend who is the chairman of the taxi association; has his own army; the taxi associations are his business partners and therefore his private militia; and anyone who affects his interests will be subjected to taxi owners violence. He thus threatened to unleash black on black violence.

This strongly suggests that Rupert sponsored the taxi violence during and after the apartheid era. There’s also reason to believe that Rupert will not hesitate to set his private army on BLF. The two are enemies. Rupert has ten interdicts against BLF to prevent them from taking the land that he stole from blacks.

In mid February this year AfriForum lodged a complaint at the Equality Court in Johannesburg against BLF and its President, Andile Mngxitama. The complaint relates to a speech delivered on 08 December 2018 by President Mngxitama at a rally that took place at the Ikageng Stadium, in Ikakeng, Potchefstroom. During his address BLF President responded to Ruperts incitement of violence. He said that if Rupert unleashes his private militia of taxi bosses to kill one black person then BLF would respond with 5 white lives, including their women, children and pets. He pointed out that we will defend ourselves against the violence of Rupert – it is our right.

The relief sought by AfriForum includes inter alia the following orders: that the words expressed by President Mngxitama amount to hate speech; an unconditional apology; damages in the amount of R500 000.00; and referral of the Judgment and the evidence to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Yesterday, BLF filed its opposing affidavit in the Equality Court. We pointed out amongst other things as follows:

AfriForum has not proven its case and the Court must deny the relief it seeks. The underlying assumptions of the orders sought demonstrate the function of racism and arrogance by AfriForum. It is aimed at humiliating BLF and its President and reproducing the violence of colonialism. When perpetrating the black genocide whites acted indiscriminately making no distinction between black women, men, children and their pets – they killed them all. The reference to white children and women, as well as their pets is rhetorical and meant to create a mirror image and serve as a deterrent to the black on black violence threatened by Rupert.

BLF also made a general call to all the taxi associations. We asked them to tell Rupert, ‘We are not your militia. We are not your private army’.

The formation of a political party is un-circumscribed and free. It is a constitutional right. The consolidated effect of the complaint by AfriForum is to proscribe the existence of the BLF.

This case is politically motivated and malicious. It forms part of a long list of attempts by Afriforum to ban BLF. AfriForum will not succeed. BLF will be in parliament in 2019.

BLF to represent the landless in AfriForum’s bid to stop land expropriation

Black First Land First (BLF) notes with disdain that AfriForum is approaching the High Court on an urgent basis to stop land expropriation without compensation. Today, AfriForum will be seeking an order from the court “suspending the decision of the Constitutional Review Committee taken on 15 November 2018 to adopt the “Report of the Joint constitutional review committee on the possible review of Section 25 of the Constitution, dated 15 November 2018””.

AfriForum is a criminal racist organisation which wants to stop black people from getting back the land that was stolen by the colonial settlers. The political roadshow on land expropriation was nothing more than a lie to deceive black people into believing that they will get land hence they must vote for the lying African National Congress (ANC) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the 2019 general election.

BLF to take action against AfriForum

BLF to take action against AfriForum

Black First Land First (BLF) takes the denial of apartheid being a crime against humanity as insulting the dignity of black people and an act of racism. Apartheid was declared a crime against humanity by the United Nations. The International Criminal Court has also expressed in its statutes that apartheid is a crime against humanity.

The racist AfriForum/Euroforum continues with its racist activities unabated. BLF will no longer tolerate the racism of this group. AfriForum/Euroforum has now revved up its racism by denying that apartheid is a crime against humanity. Denialism of the holocaust is a crime in Germany, correctly so.

BLF in Gauteng will be undertaking several actions against AfriForum including opening a case of racism with the Equality Court on Thursday, engaging in protest actions and writing letters to parliament to have this group banned. If parliamant and the courts do not act, BLF will stop the racism of AfriForum by any means necessary.

BLF regards the denialism of apartheid as a declaration of war against black people.
