Malema, hands off Ingonyama Trust!

Malema, hands off Ingonyama Trust!

Black First Land First, KwaZulu-Natal (BLF KZN) supports the brave call by members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in KZN for their president, Julius Malema, to apologize for (and retract) his contemptuous remarks against Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, relating to the said King’s custodianship of land in the Ingonyama Trust.

Malema has publicly and recklessly called for land held by the black Ingonyama Trust to be expropriated. His utterances are a call to war between blacks and amounts to a rejection of correcting the historical colonial theft of black lands by whites. It is unnecessary and hinders black unity towards expropriating the productive 80% of the land currently in white hands.

Julius Malema needs to be taught some finer lessons about the land struggle against colonialism. He must stop using public platforms to talk haphazardly about the land that our people are so inextricably invested in, in their quest to regain their dignity and being. The land struggle in KZN has followed a long, tortuous path. It started long before political party formations and has its origins in the times when Ubukhosi was the sole governance of the people. King Dingaan was the first to take up arms against the settlers in defence of this land and King Cetshwayo defeated the settlers at Isandlwana against colonial land theft.

The Ingonyama Trust is not a colonial land thief. The land that it controls via the King’s custodianship is under the correct collective ownership of the people. It is actually cowardice on the part of Malema to seek to expropriate the little remaining land that is still under black control and to leave the vast majority of our land to remain in white hands.

We note that just like how Cyril Ramaphosa’s African National Congress (ANC) abandoned Radical Economic Transformation (RET) for the racist Democratic Alliance’s ‘New Dawn’ agenda, the EFF led by Julius Malema has abandoned the economic freedom fight that the movement has branded itself on. Evidently the EFF is in cahoots with the ANC and the DA to dispossess the dispossessed by campaigning for the dissolution of the Ingonyama Trust that holds land in black interests. The only authentic representative of RET, we maintain, is the BLF.

We call on Julius Malema to do the right thing – apologize to King Zwelithini!

BLF press statement – ABSA, SARB, Mining Charter, media coverup of corruption

24 June 2017
BLF Head Office,
Ghandi Square,
Johannesburg

Introduction

Today, South Africa is facing a grave danger of being brainwashed by the white owned media with the assistance of the opposition parties into believing white propaganda. The nation has been lied to just like under apartheid where most of our people were made to believe that the freedom fighters were terrorists as a result of the propaganda of the apartheid media. Today again, those who stole our land and kept us as slaves on farms, their kitchens and mines are again using their media to make sure our people do not see the truth.

Black First Land First (BLF) warns our people against the alliance of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and the Democratic Alliance (DA) against Radical Economic Transformation (RET). The so called “Zuma Must Fall” campaign was planned and funded by British imperialism under the direction of Lord Robin Renwick who is tasked by the British Crown to remove President Zuma from office via a combination of mass action and the capturing of parliament as well as the judiciary. The white owned media’s role is to pump up the propaganda that the real enemy of progress is not the land thieves and white monopoly capital, but rather President Zuma and the Guptas.

The plan is to try and remove President Zuma before his term ends and to replace him with Cyril Ramaphosa who has shown his commitment to the British Crown and white monopoly capital by ordering the killing of workers in Marikana. It must be remembered that Ramaphosa killed workers in Marikana for a British firm called Lonmin which has not asked for forgiveness nor paid reparations.

The so called court application for a “secrete ballot” is another ploy to try and create conditions conducive for the British sponsored coup. It’s a known fact that the Speaker of Parliament has a discretion to order a secret ballot. The court order sought serves merely as propaganda for the coup. The EFF, DA and United Democratic Movement (UDM) do not believe in the secret ballot. To this end provision is made in each of their respective constitutions that should any of their Members of Parliament vote against the party position, that member shall be expelled from that party – but these parties want a secret ballot for the African National Congress (ANC). The white owned media has not asked, “why do you want something for the ANC which you don’t want for your own party?”

The answer to the question is that Johann Rupert and London have bought some ANC Members of Parliament to vote with the opposition parties who are themselves in the pocket of Johann Rupert and Lord Robin Renwick. These bought ANC Members of Parliament can only carry out the wishes of London in secret.

Today’s court application is nothing but part of the psychological warfare so as to create an atmosphere to push the coup propaganda in order to give the bought ANC Members of Parliament a chance to fulfill the common mandate of London, which both the DA and EFF supports.

They want Zuma out because he is calling for Land Expropriation Without Compensation and for Radical Economic Transformation. The removal of Pravin Gordhan has scared London and white monopoly capital. They want Zuma gone as of yesterday and will spare no effort in the planning and execution of the coup. Now they are using the court system to legitimise the London coup. The court application was not necessary. The Speaker of Parliament has the power to order a secret ballot – so why abuse the process of the court?

A secret ballot is a mechanism of corruption in a parliamentary system governed by proportional representation. In fact a secret ballot is bad for parliament, full stop! The electorate wants to know how its representatives voted and why. Forcing parliament to use the method of a secret ballot would serve to facilitate the capture of the Legislature by Johann Rupert and Lord Robin Renwick.

Today when you see Julius Malema march side by side with Helen Zille or her poodle, Mmusi Maimane, you must know they are carrying out the London agenda.

BLF says:

– “NO to the London agenda!”
– “Hands off Zuma, we want Economic Liberation NOW!”.
