Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community & BLF receive written court order unblocking identity documents

On7 June 2019 the Pretoria High Court under case number 48064/18 ordered the blanket unblocking of the identity documents of millions of blacks at the instance of the government. First Land First (BLF), in solidarity with the plight of those affected, has undertaken to monitor the process.

Yesterday leaders of Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project who represent the affected people and BLF leaders in Bushbuckridge Municipality welcomed receipt of the written Court judgement.

This will be circulated to members in Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Lipompo and North West to facilitate the speedy implementation of the court order.

The Court granted this order with costs against the Department of Home Affairs who had failed to demonstrate a just case for their heavy handedness. This is essentially a case of the theft of the identities of blacks by the anti black system.

BLF, in consultation with the Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project, shall ensure that the Department of Home Affairs stops its racist conduct by:

1. actually unblocking of all black people’s identity documents

2. desisting from conducting itself in the same manner again.

Further progress shall be reported in due course.

BLF applauds Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project for court victory unblocking identity documents of millions

BLF applauds Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project for court victory unblocking identity documents of millions

First Land First (BLF) was in the High Court today, supporting millions of people in Mpumalanga whose identity documents had been blocked by the government, in the following matter:

Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project (Applicant) versus Minister of the Department of Home Affairs (First Respondent); and Director-General: Department of Home Affairs (Second Respondent), in the High Court, Gauteng Division, sitting in Pretoria, case number 48064/18

The government, which has been allowed to act with impunity, had blocked the identity documents of blacks in their multitudes for no stated reason. This act of identity theft generally serves to keep blacks in bondage and gives legitimacy to colonial land theft and the destruction of the African being.

BLF congratulates Mahlo Ya Rixaka Community Project for leading the struggle to return the identities of countless blacks who have been robbed of their identities at the instance of the anti black government.

The High Court today correctly ordered the unblocking of the relevant identity documents, with costs against the Department of Home Affairs – who had failed to answer to the case against them. This signals a stunning victory for the people!

BLF shall monitor the implementation of the court order in terms of which the Department of Home Affairs has seven days from today to effect the necessary unblocking.

BLF commends President Zuma on legalization of Zimbabweans living and operating in SA

Black First Land First (BLF) commends President Zuma for the decriminalization via legislative measures of Zimbabweans working, studying and living in South Africa (SA). Through the granting of the Zimbabwean Exemption Permit (ZEP) by the Department of Home Affairs, Zimbabweans living in SA will upon application be granted authority to work, stay, conduct businesses and study in the country. There are reportedly in excess of 180,000 Zimbabwean nationals that live in SA.

During his time in power, President Jacob Zuma, had focused much of his attention on strengthening relations with African countries, like Zimbabwe, that played a role in the fight against colonialism.
