Stop the persecution of Advocate Mkhwebane

Stop the persecution of Advocate Mkhwebane

The name of Black First Land First (BLF) has been mobilsed in the kangaroo court going on in parliament against the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. The Section 194 Enquiry is calculated to muzzle the investigation on the corruption and unlawfull conduct of President Ramaphosa on the Phala Phala scandal. Furthermore, the Public Protector is being crucified for finding that ABSA must pay back the money stolen from the people of South Africa. Also her recommendation for the transformation of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) into an institution that serves the people, frightened and enraged the Stellenbosch mafia which controls the South African economy and policies around the management of it.

It is instructive that the courts which ruled against her ABSA findings, didn’t get into the merits of her findings; and based their decision on the technicalities of ABSA not being consulted but the State President and BLF (the complainant) being consulted instead,

It’s not a secret that under Advocate Thuli Madonsela the Office of the Public Protector was a bulldog of white monopoly capital, the primary enemy of BLF. It’s further no secret that Johann Rupert thanked Adv Madonsela with a professorship and a cushy job at his University of Stellenbosch.

Parliament must stop the witch-hunt through its bogus hearings.The courts have ruled for the return of the Public Protector to her job. She must be allowed to go back and conclude her work and her tenure.

BLF takes strong exception at its name being dragged like this without being called to provide its own version on the matter.

Hands Off the Public Protector

Hands Off the Public Protector

Black First Land First ( BLF) is not surprised by the unethical mafia like behaviour of Cyril Ramaphosa. The timing of his suspension of the Public Protector shows that he doesn’t respect the rule of law.

The criminal conduct of the President is now blatant. Ramaphosa is trying to get a pliant Public Protector to help him cover up his crimes. Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane is being removed from office to stop her investigations of serious criminal conduct of Ramaphosa. It’s time for Ramaphosa to step down.

Ramaphosa has proven beyond reasonable doubt that he is not fit to govern. The country is in the hands of a criminal President who uses the state to protect himself against the law. Ramaphosa is a virtual criminal beholden to white capital.

We call on Ramaphosa to stop the witch-hunt against Advocate Mkhwebane. We say Hands Off the Public Protector!

The Public Protector punished for fighting apartheid corruption

The Public Protector punished for fighting apartheid corruption

The Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane, is being dragged to court for ruling that ABSA must pay back the money stolen from the people of South Africa during apartheid. It is no secret that Bankorp was part of a list of organizations and individuals that looted over R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) just before the end of apartheid. Others include the Rupert family.

Bankorp has since been swallowed by ABSA and the Public Protector was therefore correct to find that ABSA must pay back the money stolen from SARB.

Black First Land First (BLF) supports the correct finding which has been overturned in a political decision of the North Gauteng High Court and erroneously buttressed by the Constitutional Court. It’s a simple matter that was never disputed that Bankorp, together with others, benefited unlawfully from the R26 billion so called “life boats” which was an illegal mechanism to steal money from SARB.

The irony is that those who stole from SARB found favour with the current President, Cyril Ramaphosa, and his cronies like Pravin Gordhan who are linked to the looters of SARB and are therefore protected.

Maria Ramos, who was CEO of ABSA at the time that the Public Protector’s report was released, is one of the CR17 donors. This explains why the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has hastened to drag the Public Protector to court. This is the revenge of the CR17 donors who have captured the state.

Is it not ironic that real corruption like the over R200 billion Steinhoff mess has not seen the culprits such as Markus Jooste brought before the courts?

The dragging of the Public Protector to court because she ruled that ABSA must pay back the money must be seen as evidence beyond doubt that the Ramaphosa administration is working for white monopoly capital. This is the fascism and tyranny of Stellenbosch. It’s an insult to the independence of the state and the sovereignty of our people.

Let no one be confused about why the Public Protector is in court. It has nothing to do with any wrongdoing on her part. It’s all part of the fight back by the CR17 donors who have captured the state through capturing the State President.

BLF calls on the nation to stand with the Public Protector and to pray for her protection. This is an evil war.

Ramaphosa must stop harassing the Public Protector

Ramaphosa must stop harassing the Public Protector

Black First Land First (BLF) is shocked at the report that the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane, is facing an arrest. This arrest is clearly orchestrated by the State President, Cyril Ramaphosa, who is doing the dirty work of his donors who have been exposed by the Public Protector.

Ramaphosa must immediately stop the harassment of the Public Protector by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) which has become the choice weapon of Stellenbosch which in turn has bought Ramaphosa with R1 billion.

The attack on the Public Protector is a political ploy to silence her and to prepare the nation for the process to remove her from office before her tenure ends.

Ramaphosa’s donors do not want the current Public Protector because she is not controlled by them. They are furthermore still angry about her ruling against ABSA in the apartheid lifeboat case as well as her ruling on the CR17 donations. This move is nothing but a political vendetta by a criminal gang.
