Hands off Minister Sisulu

Hands off Minister Sisulu

Black First Land First (BLF) rejects with the contempt it deserves the attack on Minister Lindiwe Sisulu by Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo. Judge Zondo has long abandoned the decorum of the judiciary and dabble in politics. His ire was raised by the call for a thorough going transformation by Minister Sisulu. The politically charged response by Judge Zondo to a mere opinion piece betrays the fact that the judge has chosen sides in the political battles inside the ANC.

Judge Zondo’s tirade against Minister Sisulu is a clear indication of which political side he is batting on. The judge seeks the approval of the Stellenbosch agenda driving faction of the ANC led by Cyril Ramaphosa. The attack on the minister shows how biased and prejudiced the judge is against Radical Economic Transformation (RET). The tirade against Minister Sisulu vindicates our belief that the Zondo Commission was nothing but a judicial lynching of those seen as leaders of RET.

The debate started by Mininster Sisulu must be encouraged and undertaken without fear or favour. The judicial lynch mob must be stopped before we have a full de facto dictatorship.

Andile Lungisa was punished for supporting Jacob Zuma

Andile Lungisa was punished for supporting Jacob Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) believes that Andile Lungisa is a victim of political persecution. The sentence doesn’t fit the crime at all. The circumstances of the alleged crime in the eyes of objective observers would indicate self defence in a highly charged environment.

Lungisa is punished for supporting Radical Economic Transformation (RET) and President Zuma. This sentence amounts to abuse of the judiciary to further political ends.

Ironically, in the same week that Andile Lungisa starts his unjustified jail time, a white criminal who is killing the rhino to sell its horns was allowed to walk. A white farmer from Mpumalanga in Middleburg was fined a mere R10 000 for being guilty of selling 5 rhino horns worth R175 000.

Deon Cornelius is white therefore he can walk but Andile Lungisa must go to jail. The rhino is an endangered species. Black poachers are regularly shot on sight and killed, but a white man pays only R10 000 and walks.

Another case that shows that Lungisa’s sentence is political is how former Blue Bulls rugby player Jacobus “Bees” Roux was allowed to murder a black policeman and then walk.

In 2010 when Metro police officer Sergeant Ntshimane Johannes Mogale stopped Roux and found him drunk, he resisted arrest, attacked the policeman and beat him to death. He offered the family of the murdered cop R750 000 blood money and the court let him walk a free man. This happened in 2011.

Let’s repeat. A white rugby player murdered a black policeman and paid money to his family and was allowed to walk. Andile Lungisa murdered no one. Andile Lungisa is a victim of the Stellenbosch agenda which paid Cyril Ramaphosa R1 billion to steal the ANC conference so that he can become president.

We stand with Andile Lungisa. Our position is that this persecution is nothing but political. It’s an attempt to intimidate those who believe in RET.

Dudu Myeni Punished for Transformation

Dudu Myeni Punished for Transformation

Former board chairperson of the South African Airways (SAA), Ms Dudu Myeni

Black First Land First (BLF) is not surprised by the North Gauteng High Court’s declaration on Wednesday of Ms Dudu Myeni as a delinquent director for life.

Throughout the trial, the presiding Judge Ronel Tolmay was visibly biased and irritable when dealing with Ms Myeni. The finding seems to have been a foregone conclusion. The judiciary has increasingly become an activist in the political arena where Radical Economic Transformation (RET) is concerned. It is seemingly doing the bidding of White Monopoly Capital (WMC), which stands to lose the most from RET.

Ms Myeni is being punished for pushing for the transformation of the SAA. She commissioned numerous forensic investigations during her tenure at SAA which have shown, amongst other things, that over R1 billion was disappeared by corruption.

Furthermore the investigations uncovered racist evergreen contracts and systematic looting through an unjustifiable perks regime for the largely white pilots cohort. Ms Myeni has moreover decried the skewed and racist pattern of spending the procurement budget at SAA. To this end she had challenged the fact that out of the SAA annual procurement budget of R24 billion, 98% goes to white companies and only 2% is spent on black businesses. Me Myeni had in fact demanded changes and to this end has angered white businesses who in turn also own the media that was unleashed upon her.

Ms Myeni is being punished for this. BLF calls on the judiciary to desist from descending into the political arena. The judiciary doesn’t engender public confidence in itself. Increasingly it looks like the judges are pushing an agenda. This is sowing the wind. We must not be surprised when the whirlwind is reaped.

Happy birthday President Zuma

Happy birthday President Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) wishes the Father of Radical Economic Transformation (RET), President Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, a happy 78th birthday and many happy returns.

In honor of this day we recommit ourselves to realizing RET as a minimum program to unite all the progressive peoples towards advancing the course of real liberation.

BLF also takes this opportunity to acknowledge the 18th anniversary today of the US sponsored 2002 coup attempt on the democratically elected Venezuelan President, Hugo Chávez.

To mark President Zuma’s birthday, we invite you to view the befitting documentary – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (a.k.a. Chavez: Inside the Coup) – which gives deep insight into the life of President Chavez in the seven months leading to the April 2002 coup and his return, about 48 hours later, to power.

As we celebrate President Zuma’s birthday, we continue to agitate and organize for a complete defeat and destruction of the London, Washington, Stellenbosch sponsored ‘New Dawn’ program of Ramaphosa that is busy surrendering the country to the enemy.

Happy birthday Comrade President Zuma!
