BLF rejects non apology of City Press

Black First Land First (BLF) has seen the so called apology published by the City Press after losing the appeal for writing fake news about a BLF event. City Press has lied about what Professor Malikane said at the BLF Blacks in Dialogue (BiD) event in April 2017.

We laid a complaint with the Press Ombud who found in favour of BLF. Instead of apologizing as ordered, City Press then appealed the Ruling of the Press Ombud. However, City Press lost again when their application for leave to appeal was dismissed by the Appeals Panel on 19 July 2017 via Judge Ngoepe. But City Press has been undeterred for three weeks – as it refused to comply with the Ruling of the Press Ombud ordering it to apologize to Prof Malikane.

BLF had subsequently written to the Press Ombud to get City Press to comply with the Ombud’s Ruling. However, instead of complying City Press has yet again written a fake apology. BLF rejects this apology and has written to the Press Ombud to get due compliance from City Press.

City Press, Media24, AmaBhungane and Daily Maverick regularly write fake news in defence of white monopoly capital. BLF has lodged another complaint with the Press Ombud about fake stories by these bulldogs of white monopoly capital. We know that they don’t do journalism – they do white propaganda.

BLF demands a proper apology. We reject the non apology written in the same modus operandi of fake news that these outlets specialize in. its clear why AmaBhungane and Daily Maverick are running away from a debate with BLF. They know they will be exposed!

When SANEF is done talking to the racist Koos Bekker, it can come and talk to BLF!

When SANEF is done talking to the racist Koos Bekker, it can come and talk to BLF!

Black First Land First (BLF) has learnt from the racist, apartheid and colonial News24 – which is owned by Koos Bekker and created by the land dispossessors and justifiers of apartheid being Naspers – that SANEF is giving BLF until 10h00 tomorrow to respond to what they say is not a satisfactory compliance with the High Court order. SANEF has not written to us. We are also not aware if it has written to our lawyers. We therefore do not take the News24 statement seriously.

SANEF has every right to talk to Koos Bekker or to apartheid deniers. When it is satisfied taking to others, it can come and talk to us. We are ready and willing to engage, as we have always been.
