Julius Malema says the people of Soweto must pay for electricity. He is imputing that there are those who are hiding behind the poor. This is nothing but an insult to the people of Soweto who are involved in a serious struggle with Eskom and the commodification of a basic need. Why must anyone in South Africa (SA) pay for electricity for household use?

Malema pretends to be fighting for the poor when in fact he is an enforcer of the anti black neoliberal Stellenbosch agenda. The people of Soweto aren’t hiding behind any poor people. They are poor like the rest of SA. Secondly, why must they even pay for a basic need? Must they also pay for healthcare and education?

Despite the povery biting at the Soweto people, they have offered to pay a flat rate of R150. Black First Land First (BLF) says that they shouldn’t pay even a cent. Why must we pay when we have already paid for energy generation?

Malema must know these basic facts: households only use 30% of the energy generated; coal is for free; and we pay for the establishment, development and operational costs of mines (hence “cost plus mines”). Moreover, Eskom should sell the remaining 70% of the energy to industry at competitive prices, not at the current massive indirect prices that amount to a subsidy to white monopoly capital (WMC).

Soweto is correct, electricity is a right. South African households must all get free electricity because its a right and is already paid for by the same tax payer. We call for an end to the betrayal of the poor to enrich the few.

We also now wonder if Malema didn’t call the march against Eskom to simply promote his new found love for nuclear energy. This change of heart seems to be consistent with the interests of western imperialism in the nuclear program in SA. We are moved to ask: Does Lord Robin Renwick now want the nuclear deal for his friends? Are the people of Soweto being used to justify the call for nuclear so as to benefit Stellenbosch and its Western friends?

Malema and Zille march for London

Malema and Zille march for London

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!”.
