BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop witch-hunt against the Public Protector

BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop witch-hunt against the Public Protector

Black First Land First (BLF) believes that Cyril Ramaphosa is allowing or encouraging a witchhunt against the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. This is part of a vendetta against her for the decisions she has taken which adversely affect President Cyril Ramaphosa, Minister Pravin Gordhan, and in particular ABSA bank and the South African Reserve Bank (SARB).

It can’t be a coincidence that the Public Protector is being attacked left, right and center. This is a well coordinated attack on the Public Protector by powerful forces. First it was parliament which concocted rules just to remove her from office. Now the Speaker of the National Assembly, Thandi Modise, has granted the racist Democratic Alliance (DA) their wish to institute proceedings to remove the Public Protector from office in terms of these new rules crafted to remove her. Then there is the Hawks chasing her on completely silly charges laid by racist organizations of land thieves. As if that is not enough, now the South African Revenue Service (SARS) is hounding her. This is nothing but a vengeful attack on the Public Protector .

The Public Protector is being attacked for finding that Ramaphosa’s CR17 campaign may have broken the law. We now know that R1 billion was used to unduly influence the African National Congress (ANC) Nasrec conference. The Public Protector also found prima facie evidence of money laundering in relation to the CR17 campaign. In particular, she found that Ramaphosa lied to parliament about his dealings with his campaign. A by product of all this is that Gavin Watson is believed to be murdered to cover up the whole mess.

The Public Protector has also found against Pravin Gordhan in the SARS based Rogue Unit saga. The illegal unit was used as a slush fund for friends over and above for illegally gathering information on opponents of white monopoly capital (WMC).

The Public Protector also found that ABSA must pay back the money stolen from SARB. She has also recommended that SARB be transformed to serve the people.

The above are the main reasons why they want her out. By not intervening to protect a Chapter 9 institution which is under attack, Ramaphosa is serving his own interests and those of his donors. Absa, as it has been revealed, is one of the donors of CR17.

BLF calls on Ramaphosa to stop the witchhunt now!

BLF congratulates the Public Protector for a clean audit

BLF congratulates the Public Protector for a clean audit

The Office of the Public Protector has received a clean audit from the auditor-general (AG) regarding its financial health and management. This shows that the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane, is leading by example. All public institutions must emulate the high standards displayed by the Public Protector in the management of public finances.

Black First Land First (BLF) calls upon both the executive and elected representatives, such as Members of Parliament (MPs), to follow the good practice and high ethical conduct of the Public Protector’s Office in matters related to financial management, internal controls, reporting, and record keeping.

It is encouraging to hear that the AG has given the Public Protector a glowing review. Congratulations to the Public Protector for her solid management of public finances and servant leadership.

Parliament fails to defend the Public Protector

Parliament fails to defend the Public Protector

Black First Land First (BLF) is not surprised that it took less than five minutes for Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services to resolve to start a process to remove the Public Protector.

After revelations that President Ramapahosa gave money to members of the opposition, it makes sense that no party deemed it to be its ethical duty to protect the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.

Parliament’s Rules Committee is urgently formulating the relevant rules to allow for the removal of the Public Protector. This is an unethical and brazen defence of President Ramapahosa, who has been found wanting by the Public Protector.

The call for rules to be established to remove Chapter 9 Institutions is a direct attack on the Public Protector. The Public Protector has found that the President has broken his oath of office by lying to parliament. She has also found against the President for what amounts to a brazen case of state capture and money laundering involving huge amounts of money linked to the CR17 campaign. Evidently, the subsequent #RamaphosaLeaks has indicated that the amount of R1billion was raised to buy the ANC Nasrec Conference. It now seems like Ramaphosa is using parliament to fight back.

BLF is not suprised that not one party represented in parliament objected to this unethically process. This consensus and strategic non attendance of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) at the meeting of the Committee, is calculated to facilitate the interests of WMC.

BLF reiterates that there is only one party in parliament. It’s the party of WMC clad in
different colours
