Dudu Myeni Punished for Transformation

Dudu Myeni Punished for Transformation

Former board chairperson of the South African Airways (SAA), Ms Dudu Myeni

Black First Land First (BLF) is not surprised by the North Gauteng High Court’s declaration on Wednesday of Ms Dudu Myeni as a delinquent director for life.

Throughout the trial, the presiding Judge Ronel Tolmay was visibly biased and irritable when dealing with Ms Myeni. The finding seems to have been a foregone conclusion. The judiciary has increasingly become an activist in the political arena where Radical Economic Transformation (RET) is concerned. It is seemingly doing the bidding of White Monopoly Capital (WMC), which stands to lose the most from RET.

Ms Myeni is being punished for pushing for the transformation of the SAA. She commissioned numerous forensic investigations during her tenure at SAA which have shown, amongst other things, that over R1 billion was disappeared by corruption.

Furthermore the investigations uncovered racist evergreen contracts and systematic looting through an unjustifiable perks regime for the largely white pilots cohort. Ms Myeni has moreover decried the skewed and racist pattern of spending the procurement budget at SAA. To this end she had challenged the fact that out of the SAA annual procurement budget of R24 billion, 98% goes to white companies and only 2% is spent on black businesses. Me Myeni had in fact demanded changes and to this end has angered white businesses who in turn also own the media that was unleashed upon her.

Ms Myeni is being punished for this. BLF calls on the judiciary to desist from descending into the political arena. The judiciary doesn’t engender public confidence in itself. Increasingly it looks like the judges are pushing an agenda. This is sowing the wind. We must not be surprised when the whirlwind is reaped.

State institutions meant to protect every citizen are used to persecute those considered hostile to white monopoly capital (WMC). Ms Dudu Myeni, the former board chairperson of the South African Airways (SAA), is facing a well funded and well coordinated judicial attack by forces of reaction. The white right wing groups masked as civil society entities are using the untransformed courts to stop the program of Radical Economic Transformation (RET).

Dudu Myeni is being persecuted for wanting change at SAA. The nation still doesn’t know that the source of the SAA crisis is a white American man called Coleman Andrews who took over R200 million for himself after selling off aircrafts belonging to the national carrier to his friends and promptly allowing them to be leased back to the SAA.

It’s the height of hypocrisy that Dudu Myeni is in court and Coleman Andrews is enjoying the loot he got from the SAA.

Black First Land First (BLF) will be submitting a complaint of state capture, by Coleman Andrews and his gang, to the Zondo Commission.

Arrest and prosecute FW de Klerk

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) and the Hawks to arrest and prosecute FW de Klerk.

On May 8, 2017 BLF laid 22 criminal charges against FW de Klerk regarding cases of mass murders relating to several massacres. FW de Klerk didn’t appear before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) to make confessions regarding his sins. He has no immunity from prosecution. We demand justice for the thousands of people murdered by his apartheid regime.

We note that white monopoly capital (WMC) is going all out to use the captured judiciary to lynch both Dudu Myeni and the Public Protector (PP) Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. We also note that Ramaphosa’s ANC is dealing with all the other Radical Economic Transformation (RET) forces, to satisfy the CR17 donors. In this context the legal system continues to prosecute black people while white criminals, charged by BLF, get to walk the streets freely.

BLF will be approaching the NPA to get clarity as to why de Klerk has not yet been arrested and prosecuted and shall take appropriate action for its failure to do its work.

Parliament must stop harassing Dudu Myeni now!

Parliament must stop harassing Dudu Myeni now!

Black First Land First (BLF) calls on the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises (Committee) to immediately stop the harassment of Ms Dudu Myeni. It is clear that the Committee is driven by political vendettas against black leaders who are seen as proponents of Radical Economic Transformation (RET).

Ms Myeni is being harassed and demonized for her gallant effort to protect the South African Airways (SAA) from being sold to white monopoly capital (WMC). She is being hounded for pushing for black empowerment at the national carrier when she was chairperson of the SAA board.

BLF also calls upon the HAWKS to refuse to be used in the political witch-hunt on the opponents of the Stellenbosch mafia which in turn, is now operating freely after the removal of President Zuma. It is shocking that the HAWKS have jumped on mere media hysteria but have not done anything about the criminal case that BLF has opened against Markus Jooste whose corruption has caused the loss of R18 billion from the state coffers.

BLF is furthermore enraged by the fact that the Committee, which is harassing Ms Myeni, is scared of Markus Jooste, the corrupt former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Steinhoff. Jooste has refused point-blank to appear before the Committee which has no
qualms to send the HAWKS after Ms Myeni. This is an insult, not just to Ms Myeni, but to the entire black population.

BLF calls on parliament to stop the harassment of Ms Dudu Myeni forthwith. Furthermore, parliament must apologize for demonizing her and for the unjustifiable and unwarranted attacks on her integrity.

We call on the Committee to immediately summon the arrogant and corrupt former CEO of Steinhoff to appear before it so as to account for the billions lost through his corruption.
