BLF condemns secret apartheid like kangaroo court in Senekal

The accused persons in the alleged farm murder case in Senekal have already been found guilty without a trial. Julius Malema called them murderers who must rot in jail.

The court has decided to hold the proceedings in secret to protect what we believe to be a white farmer who is conducting the whole kangaroo court. In a democracy, the court process needs to be open to meet the public expectations of being unbiased.

BLF believes the court and politicians are involved in a conspiracy to deny the accused persons the right to a fair trial. The accused are already prejudiced in a secret apartheid like court.

Black First Land First (BLF) demands an open trial so that the nation can see for itself how biased the courts are against farm workers.

BLF warns blacks against Malema

BLF warns blacks against Malema

Julius Malema is a dangerous demagogue who manipulates genuine issues for political gain in order to delay the emancipatory struggle of black people. Malema speaks black so as to confuse our people into thinking he is on their side when in fact, he is defending white land thieves. His stunts in Senekal once again prove this. He will gain massive media mileage through the demonization of black people who are accused of the murder.

Malema has come out to declare that the suspects are murderers long before any court has found anyone guilty. This is a man who never tires of telling anyone who will listen that he is innocent until proven otherwise but now he — because he seeks the approval of land thieves — has declared the murderer to be a black “boy”. It is known that white farmers kill each other to justify their racist agenda and lie about a white genocide. Malema chooses to stand with land thieves against black people who are regular victims of murder by farmers.

Black First Land First (BLF) warns black people to watch Malema carefully. He is not on the side of black people. He is using black suffering to advance his pro-white agenda. Not long ago, Malema was marching hand in hand with the DA and Freedom Front Plus against Zuma in defence of the white agenda.

The same with the Clicks racist advert. Malema took the matter and turned it into political fodder for his own gain then let Unilever and Clicks off the hook with nonsensical demands and a vague commitment to transformation. In the end, the executive who was responsible for the advert was shielded and his or her name is not known up to now.

Malema says his party will be in Senekal, but not to defend the accused who haven’t been found guilty—but are already under attack by the racist land thieves—in court. If Malema is not going to protect the victims of violence by land thieves and instead, call them murderers, who is he going to protect? Is all of this just another publicity stunt to gain sympathy from blacks through a media spectacle when in fact he is there to defend land thieves?

BLF rejects with contempt, Malema’s antiblack statements, including his misleading utterances; “That black boy who killed a white man must go and rot in jail. It’s not our problem. We do not protect criminals.” Which court found any black “boy” guilty of murder? Is there any boy amongst the accused or is Malema, like the land thieves, infantilizing black people like all racists do?

Fanon long since described the process of decolonization as the confrontation between the settler and the native. Anyone who is for decolonization ipso facto stands with the native in the manichean confrontation.

We would do well to remember, it was black boys who ended the evil reign of terror of Eugene Terreblanche. We salute them, we don’t condemn them as murderers who must rot in jail. Malema sleeps peacefully every night at his gated home provided by Andriano Mazzotti while the blacks on farms are murdered with impunity and he has the gall to call them murderers who must rot in jail.

The instinct of Afriforum and other pro-white organizations is to protect their own, even when found guilty of murdering blacks. Afriforum has provided both legal representation and funds to defend the land thieves who murdered a black child in the North West. Whites protect each other no matter what.

We call on Julius Malema to stop demonizing black people and calling them murderers and wishing them to rot in jail.

It looks like Malema is selling out the accused in Senekal to plead for mercy in his own case of assault against a policeman. He is trying to show that he is a good black person and must the treated leniently.

If Malema was serious about ending the racism on farms, he would have dedicated his time to ensuring there is land expropriation without compensation. The vulnerability of blacks on farms is the function of landlessness. We note that Malema and his cohort have done nothing to make sure there is land expropriation without compensation.

BLF warns blacks not to be hoodwinked by the media spectacle to be enacted in Senekal on Friday. It’s about deceiving blacks into thinking something is being done for them when in fact it’s all about protecting land thieves and self service for Malema. Be warned!

To end racism 51% of Clicks must be black owned now!

To end racism 51% of Clicks must be black owned now!

Black First Land First (BLF) is aware that Julius Malema is on the verge of pick pocketing Clicks. A meeting like that of the Convention for a Democratic South Africa (CODESA) will be held today with Clicks. This tea and biscuits meeting follows the same pattern of meetings like those held with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) executives after the 50,000 people march in October 2015. After the meeting with the JSE, the demands of the march were forgotten. The same happened after Malema’s meeting with Patrice Motsepe who was threatened with exposing his role in the Independent Power Producers (PPIs) situation.

BLF supports all genuine struggles against any acts of racism. However, we are critical of the opportunistic use of struggles against racism for self-aggrandizement by corrupt politicians.

Clicks is bullied into meetings to cut deals but not to end racism. The only way to end the racism of Clicks is to demand 51% black ownership of the business – with workers and the unemployed youth being beneficiaries, not any politician.

BLF therefore calls on Clicks to show authentic remorse by giving real black ownership of 51% to its black workers and the unemployed youth.

Racism will not be brought to an end by platitudes and meetings. No more CODESA-like sellout solutions. Only real black empowerment will end racism.

Julius Malema gave R6 million to white businesses

Black First Land First (BLF) is yet again forced to comment on the lack of a pro black ideology, black consciousness (BC), by black political parties like the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The lack of BC has reduced these parties to being servants of white monopoly capitalists like Johann Rupert. Now the EFF has proudly given R6 million to the Solidarity Fund which is a mechanism that prioritizes white businesses. The R6 million is in fact a gift from Julius Malema to white businesses.

The Black Business Council (BBC) has consistently complained about how the Solidarity Fund has sidelined black businesses. Malema ignored these legitimate cries. To this end he chose to donate the R6 million with no conditions in favor of black businesses to the same Solidarity Fund.

Black businesses, like spaza shops, have been destroyed by the lack of government support during the lockdown. In fact white monopoly capital (WMC) is now taking over the township economy after the destruction of black businesses during the Covid-19 crisis.

As correctly reported, “[t]he list of companies that have been awarded multibillion-rand contracts to supply critical medical equipment for the country’s fight against Covid-19 is dominated by white-owned companies”. BLF asks, why give more money to white companies?

The pro white Business for South Africa (B4SA), which controls the Solidarity Fund, has been selecting predominantly white entities to be awarded contracts to supply personal protective equipment (PPE), in a process that looks like nepotism.

BLF supports the objection of the South African United Business Confederation (SAUBC) to Tito Mboweni‘s decision to allow the pro WMC B4SA to select businesses to supply PPEs via a process which is out of kilter with government procurement policies. This is corruption.
BLF can’t dictate what Malema must do with the money of his organisation. However, we are duty bound by our revolutionary conscience to expose the fact that the donation is being given to white businesses. Our BC dictates that we raise this matter on behalf of the marginalized black businesses. We invite Malema to abandon white thinking and adopt BC.
