BLF notes with sadness once more the unholy anti black alliance of EFF and DA

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has been consistent in its aid to white power to destroy black leaders who are enemies of Stellenbosch. The latest victory against blacks is the decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) to bankrupt President Zuma through denying him state assistance to defend himself against the politically motivated judicial attacks.

We have nothing to say about the racist Democratic Alliance (DA). It is only carrying out its white agenda against blacks. But we are saddened by the EFF, a party that has been able to win the hearts of a significant size of the revolutionary black youth through its false presentation as a revolutionary movement.

The racist DA speaks white and acts white. It’s an admirable consistency for its white agenda. Only real morons like Mmusi Maimane, Lindiwe Mazibuko and Herman Mashaba can claim not to have known that a racist party is racist.

What saddens BLF is the seamless capacity of the EFF to speak black and act white with no compaction. If the EFF is judged by what it does and not what it says, it will be plain than in fact it occupies the same anti black ideological zone as the DA, its trusted ally. A balance sheet of Black leaders who have been victimized by Stellenbosch would show that the EFF always leads the charge on behalf of white monopoly capital.

Now they have clocked another victory yet again against blackness as they proclaim fidelity to the black cause. President Zuma must pay impossible sums of money yet the legal bills of the likes of Wouter Basson are fully paid for by the state and there is no murmur from the lips of the so called revolutionaries.

The alliance between the DA and EFF was designed in London by Robin Renwick in 2015. It will endure once more after the 2021 Local Government Elections.

We speak out so that the revolutionary youth, duped by these agents of white power, do not in future say no one warned them.

The African National Congress (ANC) has squandered our past. The EFF will devour our future. If the revolutionary youth are not careful, the revolution shall be deferred in perpetuity.

BLF reiterates its commitment to stand in solidarity with President Zuma.

EFF & Uniliver protect executive who produced Clicks racist advert

EFF & Uniliver protect executive who produced Clicks racist advert

Black First Land First (BLF) rejects the sell-out agreement between the EFF and Unilever.

BLF had cautioned that the EFF was entering into a CODESA like sell-out deal. We were right. The whole negotiations served  to protect the executive who was responsible for the racist advertisement. We now believe that the executive is a white man.

Both the EFF and Unilever agreed to lie to the nation and say that the responsible executive has left the country. South Africa (SA) is under Covid-19 lockdown and international travel is banned. How could the executive have left the country? It’s a pure lie to protect the racist.

BLF will write a letter to Unilever and demand that it reveals the name of the executive, and gives 51% ownership to blacks without further delay.

We will not allow the EFF to protect the racist executive and racism in exchange for 10 000 sanitary pads and 5 black students getting bursaries.

BLF rejects Tito’s budget in toto

BLF rejects Tito’s budget in toto

Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, delivers his budget speech in parliament yesterday. Image: Sunday Times

The budget speech delivered by the Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, is nothing short of a direct attack on the poor and a brake on national reconstruction. Mboweni gave nuts and bolts to the pro Stellenbosch State of the Nation Address (SONA). This was therefore a Stellenbosch budget.

To pacify the poor, Mboweni threw some crumbs at them with one hand whilst taking it all back with another hand. What is the use of raising social grants but taking away the food of children by cutting the budget for the school feeding scheme? The burden to feed the child will invariably go to the grandparents and thereby erode even the nominal increases announced.

The fact that the Stellenbosch budget was approved by the top three political parties in parliament, shows that Stellenbosch is indeed in charge.

The Stellenbosch budget attack on social expenditure is evil. Mboweni will take away money from education, healthcare, and the municipalities. This means suffering for the poor.

Mboweni has also unleashed the destruction of the State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) to accelerate the privatization of these entities. The allocation to Eskom is intended to fund the independent power producers (IPPs) which are empowered to take over from Eskom and sell directly to the public, thereby making electricity unaffordable for the ordinary people. This is treasonous and must not be pardoned, even after this regime has been moved from power. The same goes for the allocation for the South African Airways (SAA) – this is taking money from building hospitals and giving it to the friends of Coleman Andrews who bankrupted the SAA.

The proposals regarding the State Bank and the Sovereign Wealth Fund make no difference in a neoliberal policy environment. The Public Investment Corporation (PIC) is an existing wealth fund but it empowers white capital. It’s shocking to hear that money for the Sovereign Wealth Fund will come from privatisation.

The State Bank annouced by Mboweni is an irrelevant red herring in the environment where existing state banks are being destroyed. The Land Bank is underfunded and has just been thrown to the vulturous rating agencies. The same situation applies to the Postbank, and Ithala Bank – to name a few. Furthermore, government is selling its 50% share equity in the African Bank after a massive bail out on its part. In other words, government already owns 50% of a commercial bank. Black First Land First (BLF) rejects the state bank of Stellenbosch which will not give blacks interest free loans.

The budget speech has inadvertently revealed how the Stellenbosch parliament functions. The Democratic Alliance (DA) sets the policy agenda, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) provides a left cover for the DA’s right wing policies, and the African National Congress (ANC) implements those policies.

BLF rejects the budget speech in its entirety. We call on the poor and workers to demand a pro people budget.

Where is Adriaan Snyman, Malema’s co- accused?

Black First Land First (BLF) laid criminal charges against Adriaan Snyman on August 2, 2018 relating to the gross negligent handling of a firearm. BLF also asked that a declaration of unfitness to possess a firearm in terms of the new Firearms Control Act must be made by the Court in relation to Snyman.

The case, which was opened at the Hillbrow Police Station under the reference CAS 60/8/2018, was subsequently transferred to Mdantsane police station where a new reference was allocated, being CAS 28/8/2018.

Snyman‘s conduct amounts to gross negligent handling of a firearm in that he gave the said firearm to Julius Malema to fire shots into the air (unsupervised) during a public event being the fifth birthday celebrations of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium, in Mdantsane.

BLF believes that the non action of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) against Snyman shows it is biased and takes instructions from Afriforum. It is not Malema’s firearm. Even if it was a toy gun, as alleged, it was nonetheless handed to Malema by Snyman. To this end Snyman had endangered the lives of people at (and in the vicinity of) the EFF event.

BLF is surprised that no action has been taken against Snyman.

We call on the NPA to immediately take action.
