BLF in court tomorrow against the racist AfriForum

BLF in court tomorrow against the racist AfriForum

Tomorrow, 21 August 2019 Black First Land First (BLF) will be at the Equality Court, which will sit in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court, to defend itself against yet another attack on our movement by land thieves. The trial will be heard under case number 29/2018 EQ JHB. The racist AfriForum has taken our ourganisation to the Equality Court on false charges of hate speech. The right wing group hopes to silence our organization through the abuse of the judiciary.

All the white supremacist organizations, representing land thieves, are scared of BLF. These organizations will do everything to stop BLF from existing. This is because these organizations of land thieves know that BLF can’t be bought with money nor can it be brought down by intimidation.

These racist organizations such as Freedom Front Plus; Solidarity; AfriForum; and their related subsidiaries would not rest until their evil project of shutting down BLF succeeds. We have bad news for them. BLF is going nowhere and shall be registered for the 2021 Local Government Elections.

There are a dozen outstanding matters, including new ones, that these groups have brought against BLF which amount to an abuse of the judiciary, in furtherance of their anti black agendas.

The trial tommorow is about a complaint of hate speech that AfriForum brought against BLF. This is in relation to the one is to five (1:5) comment by BLF President, Andile Mngxitama, which was in response to Johann Rupert threatening violence on black people through his “private army” in the taxi industry. We responded by saying that black people have a right to self defence. AfriForum is taking us to court for saying that we have a right to defend ourselves.

We shall never be bullied into allowing ourselves to be murdered like chickens.

We shall meet the land thieves in court tomorrow morning.

BLF welcomes repossession of wealth from Johann Rupert’s warehouse

BLF welcomes repossession of wealth from Johann Rupert’s warehouse

It has come to the attention of our revolutionary movement that jewelry worth over R300 million was repossessed without compensation from the warehouse of Johann Rupert. This brave act of repossession must be applauded. We hope that those who repossessed the jewelry are black people. Only black people have a legitimate right to take back that which belongs to them. All the mineral wealth in South Africa was stolen from black people.

Black First Land First (BLF) will ask both the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to investigate Johann Rupert for possible tax evasion, money laundering and possession of illicit goods. Why would a warehouse keep jewelry to the value of up to R300 million?

As long as the historical mass robbery of black people of their land and wealth is not corrected such acts of repossession, if conducted by blacks, are infinitely revolutionary.

BLF calls on EFF to cut ties with Johann Rupert

BLF calls on EFF to cut ties with Johann Rupert

Black First Land Firdt (BLF) is not surprised by the media reports linking the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to Johann Rupert. Already in 2016 Julius Malema had openly asked for money from Rupert to help remove President Zuma from Office. It is not a secret that the EFF had asked for a meeting with the representative of British imperialism, Lord Robin Renwick, in 2015 in London.

BLF has warned time and again that once Stellenbosch is done with President Zuma with the help of the EFF, it will turn against them. The timing of the book and the revelations by Johann Rupert, that he has been a sponsor of the EFF, shows that Malema and company who were used are now being discarded. They are no longer needed.

The revelations and verbatim admission by Rupert as reported proves another claim by BLF – that the top three parties in parliament represent the interests of white monopoly capital (WMC) and not the people. How will those sponsored by Rupert ever expropriate his land?

BLF calls on Julius Malema and his EFF to cut its ties with Stellenbosch and London and join the revolution. The first step to rehabilitation is to tell the landless the truth about the deals and money given to the EFF by imperialism and Stellenbosch. The next step is to ask for forgiveness and to thereafter join the revolution so as to end the rule of WMC in South AAfrica.

The revolutionary truth can set the EFF free from the scandal of being paid by agents of Johann Rupert.

BLF charged Johann Rupert for incitement of violence & opposed AfriForum’s complaint of hate speech

On 27 February 2019 Black First Land First (BLF), led by its President Andile Mngxitama, charged Johann Rupert at the Hillbrow Police Station, under the case number CAS 1025/2/2019, for inciting black on black violence. In this regard Rupert made the following racist utterances at or about 20h00 on Wednesday 4 December 2018 during an interview with Power FM (at 79 Central Street, Houghton Estate) hosted by the chairman of MSG Afrika, Given Mkhari:

“Jabu (Chairperson of Eskom, Jabu Mabuza) and I have one thing in common: He’s chairman of the (South African Black) Taxi Association and one of the first (partners) in Business Partners was the taxi association. So I also have my own army. When those red guys come, they’ve gonna have to remember the taxi association.”

Rupert clearly indicated that he had a long-time friend who is the chairman of the taxi association; has his own army; the taxi associations are his business partners and therefore his private militia; and anyone who affects his interests will be subjected to taxi owners violence. He thus threatened to unleash black on black violence.

This strongly suggests that Rupert sponsored the taxi violence during and after the apartheid era. There’s also reason to believe that Rupert will not hesitate to set his private army on BLF. The two are enemies. Rupert has ten interdicts against BLF to prevent them from taking the land that he stole from blacks.

In mid February this year AfriForum lodged a complaint at the Equality Court in Johannesburg against BLF and its President, Andile Mngxitama. The complaint relates to a speech delivered on 08 December 2018 by President Mngxitama at a rally that took place at the Ikageng Stadium, in Ikakeng, Potchefstroom. During his address BLF President responded to Ruperts incitement of violence. He said that if Rupert unleashes his private militia of taxi bosses to kill one black person then BLF would respond with 5 white lives, including their women, children and pets. He pointed out that we will defend ourselves against the violence of Rupert – it is our right.

The relief sought by AfriForum includes inter alia the following orders: that the words expressed by President Mngxitama amount to hate speech; an unconditional apology; damages in the amount of R500 000.00; and referral of the Judgment and the evidence to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Yesterday, BLF filed its opposing affidavit in the Equality Court. We pointed out amongst other things as follows:

AfriForum has not proven its case and the Court must deny the relief it seeks. The underlying assumptions of the orders sought demonstrate the function of racism and arrogance by AfriForum. It is aimed at humiliating BLF and its President and reproducing the violence of colonialism. When perpetrating the black genocide whites acted indiscriminately making no distinction between black women, men, children and their pets – they killed them all. The reference to white children and women, as well as their pets is rhetorical and meant to create a mirror image and serve as a deterrent to the black on black violence threatened by Rupert.

BLF also made a general call to all the taxi associations. We asked them to tell Rupert, ‘We are not your militia. We are not your private army’.

The formation of a political party is un-circumscribed and free. It is a constitutional right. The consolidated effect of the complaint by AfriForum is to proscribe the existence of the BLF.

This case is politically motivated and malicious. It forms part of a long list of attempts by Afriforum to ban BLF. AfriForum will not succeed. BLF will be in parliament in 2019.
