Happy birthday President Zuma

Happy birthday President Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) wishes the Father of Radical Economic Transformation (RET), President Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, a happy 78th birthday and many happy returns.

In honor of this day we recommit ourselves to realizing RET as a minimum program to unite all the progressive peoples towards advancing the course of real liberation.

BLF also takes this opportunity to acknowledge the 18th anniversary today of the US sponsored 2002 coup attempt on the democratically elected Venezuelan President, Hugo Chávez.

To mark President Zuma’s birthday, we invite you to view the befitting documentary – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (a.k.a. Chavez: Inside the Coup) – which gives deep insight into the life of President Chavez in the seven months leading to the April 2002 coup and his return, about 48 hours later, to power.

As we celebrate President Zuma’s birthday, we continue to agitate and organize for a complete defeat and destruction of the London, Washington, Stellenbosch sponsored ‘New Dawn’ program of Ramaphosa that is busy surrendering the country to the enemy.

Happy birthday Comrade President Zuma!

BLF to take FW de Klerk to African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights

Black First Land First (BLF) gives the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) one month to arrest the war criminal FW de Klerk, failing which we shall take their matter to the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights.

In 2017 BLF opened 22 criminal charges against de Klerk. These included the January 12, 1991 Sebokeng massacre where more than 30 black people were killed; the June 17, 1992 Boipatong massacre that claimed 45 lives; also the October 8, 1993 killing of five children in Transkei.

BLF will also investigate the possibility of a private prosecution of FW de Klerk for these heinous crimes. He didn’t apply for nor get amnesty from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) for these crimes.

BLF will continue to fight for justice and resist the cheapening of the cause through opportunistic stunts as we saw in the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in parliament last night. The people who were applauding FW de Klerk at the 2018 SONA and booed former President Jacob Zuma are now claiming to fight de Klerk. It’s all about deflecting attention from the looting of the VBS Mutual Bank and other corrupt activities.

De Klerk must be brought to book!

BLF calls for recusal of Judge Dhaya Pillay from case against President Zuma

BLF calls for recusal of Judge Dhaya Pillay from case against President Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) is concerned by the serious allegations that Judge Dhaya Pillay – who presided in the case against President Jacob Zuma in the Pietermaritzburg High Court yesterday and who issued a vindictive, punitive, and politically charged warrant of arrest against him – is associated with Pravin Gordhan. There are rumors that the Judge is either a relative or a personal friend of Pravin Gordhan and this constitutes a conflict of interest situation.

We know for instance that those who stole R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) forced the African National Congress (ANC) to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance and by extension the head of the reporting line for SARB. White monopoly capital (WMC) wanted a Minister of Finance who will defend its interests. Gordhan defends those same interests as Minister of Public Enterprises – the fact that he owns shares in BHP Billiton, which is responsible mainly for the Eskom energy crisis, means he won’t resolve the Eskom crisis.

Gordhan is a shareholder in several WMC businesses which wanted Zuma to be removed from office because he was problematic to white capital, seen to be too close to BRICS and represented the Radical Economic Transformation (RET) agenda. Gordhan was compromised by his business links with WMC and consequently became the public face of the “Zuma must go” campaign to destabilize the BRICS process. Today Zuma continues to symbolize the RET agenda which Gordhan opposes.

Pillay’s links to Gordhan accordingly compels her to recuse herself as Judge from the case against Zuma. The fact that she has already issued a warrant of arrest, in circumstances that it was not necessary to do so as Zuma had a legitimate reason for his absence in court due to his illness for which appropriate medical certification was produced, is sufficient proof of her bias against him due to her conflict of interest situation.

We call for the Judge to recuse herself from this matter, as her close links with Gordhan compromises her ability to be fair and impartial in making any decisions in this case.

BLF condemns U.S. sanctions on Guptas and Essa

BLF condemns U.S. sanctions on Guptas and Essa

Black First Land First (BLF) denounces the sanctions imposed on the Guptas, and their associate Salim Essa by the U.S. for their close links to former President Jacob Zuma and allegedly using that relationship to benefit financially and influence appointments to senior posts.

We condemn with contempt the blocking of the property and interests therein of the Guptas and Essa (that is within the U.S) which effectively bars those designated from conducting any business in the U.S. or with any American company internationally.

The global war to consolidate white imperialist power via puppet leaders is intensifying. The West has targeted the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). SA under President Zuma’s agenda posed a serious threat to western dominance over the country. Hence Zuma had to be replaced by their puppet. We have witnessed how Western imperialism operates through institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) via economic terrorism and political instability

We have not forgotten how in SA economic terrorism has been conducted on the Guptas labeling them the most corrupt institution responsible for state capture and thereby forcing them out. The campaign was pushed via the white owned media at the instance of white settler monopoly capital in cahoots with western imperialism.

White monopoly capital wanted the Guptas (who only supplied 5% of ESKOM’s coal needs) out of, for instance, mining so that white dominance (which supplies 95% of ESKOM’s coal needs) over the sector could be protected.

Those that called for the Guptas to go were silent on white corruption. Johan Rupert and others have stolen R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB). Despite various actions by BLF including charging Rupert and others for corruption, nothing has been done to the WMC perpetrators.

We know that those whites who stole R26 billion from SARB (which falls under the Ministry of Finance), are the same whites who forced the ANC to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance.

Also Pravin Gordhan, the current Public Enterprises Minister, is a shareholder in several businesses which forced the ANC to appoint him as the Minister of Finance. Gordhan, compromised by his business links with white capital, was the public face of the “Zuma must go” campaign to destabilize the BRICS process via regime change.

Zuma was problematic to white capital. He was seen as too close to BRICS and the Guptas. We witnessed a collaboration of the global anti BRICS process with the anti Gupta local white capital campaign to get rid of Zuma via a Brazilian like coup of Dilma Rousseff.

Making Zuma and the Guptas the enemy was a strategy that distracted us with side issues to protect white capital. Evidently that strategy is still in operation .

BLF stands in solidarity with the Guptas and Essa. We say Hands Off The Guptas and Essa!
