BLF rejects the R350 grant reapplication process

BLF rejects the R350 grant reapplication  process

The ANC government is abusing the poor through unending red tape. The requirement that the already known poor reapply to get the covid-19 R350 Social Relief of Distress Grant is harassment by the state. To add salt to injury the poor who have complied with the horrible bureaucratic requirements are being rejected for no good reason. It seems as if the reapplication process is a mechanism to cull the poor from benefiting.

The corrupt government of Cyril Ramaphosa must with immediate effect give the poor the much needed relief. The poor do not have millions of USA dollars under their mattresses.

Black First Land First (BLF) shall lay a complaint of administrative prejudice against the poor with the Public Protector’s office and the South African Human Rights Commission.

We say, give the poor their relief now!

Only 44% of R500 billion Covid-19 relief funds can be accounted for

The Cyril Ramaphosa administration is corrupt to the core. The Auditor General in her recent report shows that only 44% of the R500 billion Covid-19 relief funds can be accounted for. This means that R280 billion was stolen! The buck stops with Ramaphosa as President. He must do the honorable thing and resign for allowing such massive corruption to happen under his watch.

Black First Land First (BLF) had long ago agitated for more money to be given to the poor as relief. We called for between R3500 and R10 000 to the ten million desperately poor people. Such amounts to the poor would have stimulated the economy.

Now that we know the money disappeared into the pockets of Ramaphosa’s friends, it’s time for accounting. BLF shall be opening a corruption case against Ramaphosa as the final authority in state affairs. Also a case shall be opened against the Minister of Finance who authorised the fraudulent expenditure.

Our people are hungry. Small businesses went under when 56% of the R500 billion was stolen! This is an abomination!

The Ramaphosa administration is too corrupt!

BLF denounces SAHPRA’s delay tactics – unban Ivermectin NOW!

BLF denounces SAHPRA’s delay tactics – unban Ivermectin NOW!

The announcement by the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) that it will permit the controlled compassionate use of Ivermectin in the treatment of Covid-19, is a ploy to distract the public from demanding the use of the drug by everyone infected with the virus, free from life threatening bureaucracy.

SAHPRA‘s announcement suggests an application by healthcare professionals concerned for each patient for review by the association. This is no different from the current requirement of making individual section 21 applications for SAHPRA to grant permission to doctors to administer Ivermectin. Black First Land First (BLF) notes that SAHPRA has not even acknowledged receipt of the countless section 21 applications.

SAHPRA must stop undermining our people. Whether doctors apply via section 21 or the controlled compassionate access programme they will be unnecessarily inundated with paperwork instead of seeing to patients resulting in more lives being lost.

BLF notes that SAHPRA cautions about the lack of scientific data as a measure to deter people from using the Ivermectin. Well medical evidence shows that the downside to using Ivermectin is minimal and the benefits invaluable. You lose nothing except hope if it doesn’t work on you and this is evidently 1 in 5000. And if it works it will save lives and prevent disability in the millions.

BLF demands that SAHPRA stops acting as agents of the Gates foundation in forcing their Covid-19 vaccines on the nation instead of making Ivermectin which is cheap, safe and accessible available to the public.

We call on SAHPRA to approve Ivermectin for human use on parasites without delay. It is where its effectiveness and safety data are indisputable. This would effectively permit the medical profession to use the medication off-label both ethically and legally without fear of being prosecuted. This is already done in many countries including the US and Australia. The downside is so minimal, the bureaucracy is unnecessary.

No one needs to die if we have Ivermectin!

Stop Covid-19 deaths, give us ivermectin Now!

Stop Covid-19 deaths, give us ivermectin Now!

The government of Cyril Ramaphosa is killing South Africans for profits. The government knows that there is a cheap safe and affordable medicine against the deadly Covid-19 virus. The medicine to defeat Covid-19 which originates from Japan and is widely used the world-over, is called ivermectin.

Research shows that ivermectin can kill SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic, within 2 days. The South African government is pushing Covid-19 vaccines because these will enrich the friends of President Ramaphosa who are also his donors. It is clear that the strategy is to get as many people as possible killed by Covid-19 so that the nation is driven into a panic acceptance of the Covid-19 vaccines.

Black First Land First (BLF) suspects that the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) is complicit with the government in creating panic through death to force-feed the nation Covid-19 vaccines. Why is SAHPRA not clearing ivermectin so that our people’s lives are saved. The spokesperson of SAHPRA is openly lying about the clinical clearance of ivermectin, which is described by doctors who prescribe it as a wonder medicine.

BLF calls on the Minister of Health, Dr Mkhize, to stop the expensive and unsafe Covid-19 vaccines and rather immediately make ivermectin available to our people. It is cheap and safe. We also call on SAHPRA to immediately clear ivermectin to be used in SA.

BLF is opposed to the Covid-19 vaccines. There are safer, cheaper and effective ways to fight Covid-19. These are blocked because of profits.

BLF is in consultation with a variety of stakeholders to launch a campaign against the Covid-19 vaccines. We say NO to Covid-19 vaccines, and YES to ivermectin!
