BLF-WC opens case of fraud & corruption against DA led Mossel Bay Municipality

Black First Land First – Western Cape (BLF-WC) opened a case of fraud and corruption at the Mossel Bay SAPS station, against the DA-led Mossel Bay municipality, in relation to the fraudulent mishandling of houses that rightfully belong to community members.

The main culprit is thoroughbred white racist, Riaan Pienaar, the Director of housing in the DA-led municipality that has been terrorising black people since the early 90s. Pienaar is involved in the gross misconduct of the housing department that has led to unlawful evictions of black people from their homes, undue transfers of RDP houses, withholding of title deeds and the illegal re-selling of houses to fill the pockets of individuals in the department.

Members of the Kwanonqaba community had laid several complaints and charges at the Mossel Bay Municipality, the SAPS and with an ANC councillor regarding the fraudulent activities, however their complaints fell on deaf ears. It is clear that there is bipartisan corruption taking place and that the likes of Pienaar in the municipality’s housing department, only seek to exploit the already oppressed black community to enrich themselves.

BLF-WC leadership met with Brigadier Jantjies of the Mossel Bay SAPS, to stipulate a clear action plan and he has agreed to conclude the existing cases within 14 and 30 days respectively. Brigadier Jantjies will investigate the conduct and inaction of the SAPS in Kwanonqaba as well as ensure that the new case of fraud and corruption against the Mossel Bay Municipality gets the necessary priority that it demands. Due to the seriousness of the matter, he will also deliver bi-weekly feedback.

BLF-WC berates the bipartisan corruption orchestrated by the DA and the ANC to simply ensure poor black people remain landless and homeless. We also condemn the complicity of the SAPS in Kwanonqaba.

BLF-WC will monitor these matters, add further cases as they arise from the community of Kwanonqaba and provide regular updates, ensuring that a swift positive conclusion is reached.

The case number as received is CAS 122/3/2018.

BLF-WC condemns the killing of Mthunzi Diamond Zuma by the DA

It is with great sadness that the Black First Land First – Western Cape (BLF-WC) has learned of the death of comrade Mthunzi Diamond Zuma who was murdered for engaging in the struggle for land. BLF-WC has been honored to struggle side by side with Comrade Mthunzi for sometime now, and even as recent as the land occupation in Khayelitsha. BLF-WC says farewell to a committed and inspirational force who consistently put the struggle of the black majority first.

The senseless killing of our comrade is not something that happened unintentionally. It follows an instance of intimidation by the South African Police Services (SAPS) last week when they threatened him at his home. To this end he was told that should he continue to engage in the people’s struggle for land, he will be killed. The racist white Democratic Alliance (DA), governs the Western Cape (WC) with the intention of maintaining the white supremacist status quo via the employment of police and private security brutality. It is accordingly complicit in and responsible for the death of Comrade Mthunzi and all other black people whose lives are stolen from us because they dare to fight for the land that belongs to them. .

We are not surprised about the DA’s unwillingness to assist the Backyarders in Khayelitsha in particular and the rest of the landless in general across the WC.

BLF-WC sends its condolences to the family of comrade Mthunzi Diamond Zuma, the Pan Afrikanist Congress of Azania, the backyard dwellers and all those who have taken up the struggle with our dear Comrade Mthunzi.

Comrade Mthunzi Diamond Zuma just last week acknowledged those who put aside political differences and assisted in the struggle for land by the Khayelitsha community. BLF-WC on its part continues the call for principled black unity and disciplined commitment in the land struggle.

There’s no revolution without a struggle and all struggles compels us to serve, suffer and sacrifice. Comrade Mthunzi has sacrificed his days on earth for the total liberation of the black landless dispossessed people of Azania. He died for land and the only way we can truly honour him is to further the struggle for land return.

BLF-WC salutes this comrade and calls for the intensification of the land struggle that must ensure the return of all land, primarily white owned in use land. We must start with the land in the hands of land thieves like Johan Rupert.

BLF WC will engage with organisations and the community to push for mass land occupations as well as to engage in direct action against the racist murderous DA government.

We further warn all collaborators – including the Khayelitsha Development Forum who have failed the black community by placing the interests of white business above that of the people; and Loyiso Nkohla who works in the DA office of the Mayor, Patricia De Lille – that the lines of demarcation are clear. The white racist DA is the enemy of black liberation! Rupert, Oppenheimer and other white racist land thieves are the enemies of the people! The white racist settler who directly benefits from the oppression of the people through the proposed “development” in Khayelitsha is the enemy of the people! All those who collaborate and who stand with whites against the black majority will experience the indignation of the black majority as the black majority lay their wrath at the feet of the white land thieves. We call on all those collaborators to break with white racist land thieves and to side with the black majority in the fight for land.

BLF WC salutes the soldier who gave his life in the struggle for the return of the stolen land! Full honours to Comrade Mthunzi Diamond Zuma!

Land or death!

BLF calls for action against the corrupt Pravin Gordhan

BLF calls for action against the corrupt Pravin Gordhan

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), to take immediate action against the former Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan for his involvement in acts of corruption in the Treasury amounting to over R4 billion. The Ann7 expose’ on the corruption in Treasury is based on an audit report of the same Treasury which has been kept under the carpet since last year.

BLF believes that the reason why the report had not been made public is because Gordhan and his acolytes in Treasury attempted to cover up this corruption involving the theft of billions of rands of public money. To this end we believe that Gordhan is in parliament to continue the cover up of corruption in cahoots with white monopoly capital – his business partners across many complex shareholding schemes. In this context, we call on the ruling party to immediately suspend Pravin Gordhan from parliament. We also call for the suspension of all the senior managers in Treasury who were in office at the time that the crimes were committed

BLF will also lay criminal charges against Gordhan and his partners in crime. It’s a serious indictment on the former Minister of Finance that a major corruption scandal by white monopoly capital has implicated him. Gordhan is corrupt, conflicted and compromised.

BLF wishes to applaud Ann7 for a credible balanced and fact based expose’ of the corruption in Treasury involving over four billion rand. BLF also notes the silence of the usual loud, but fake, crusaders against corruption.
