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!

BLF respects the MKMVA spokesperson

BLF respects the MKMVA spokesperson

Black First Land First (BLF) is a Black Consciousness (BC) movement that follows the teachings of Steve Biko. Ipso facto, it is a blacks only movement. We have also adopted the minimum program of Radical Economic Transformation (RET) which unites all progressive people against the common enemy which is White Monopoly Capital (WMC).

BLF recognizes that important organizations to the RET agenda, like Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), are non racialist. Furthermore, BLF recognizes that all organizations pushing RET each have autonomy of policy on membership and leadership. Therefore our movement wishes to clarify that there is no animosity or disrespect towards the spokesperson of MKMVA.

The urgent and important task is to unite all RET forces to defend President Jacob Zuma and demand the arrest of FW de Klerk immediately; and in the long run to defeat the Stellenbosch agenda and implement the RET program.

BLF calls for recusal of Judge Dhaya Pillay from case against President Zuma

BLF calls for recusal of Judge Dhaya Pillay from case against President Zuma

Black First Land First (BLF) is concerned by the serious allegations that Judge Dhaya Pillay – who presided in the case against President Jacob Zuma in the Pietermaritzburg High Court yesterday and who issued a vindictive, punitive, and politically charged warrant of arrest against him – is associated with Pravin Gordhan. There are rumors that the Judge is either a relative or a personal friend of Pravin Gordhan and this constitutes a conflict of interest situation.

We know for instance that those who stole R26 billion from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) forced the African National Congress (ANC) to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance and by extension the head of the reporting line for SARB. White monopoly capital (WMC) wanted a Minister of Finance who will defend its interests. Gordhan defends those same interests as Minister of Public Enterprises – the fact that he owns shares in BHP Billiton, which is responsible mainly for the Eskom energy crisis, means he won’t resolve the Eskom crisis.

Gordhan is a shareholder in several WMC businesses which wanted Zuma to be removed from office because he was problematic to white capital, seen to be too close to BRICS and represented the Radical Economic Transformation (RET) agenda. Gordhan was compromised by his business links with WMC and consequently became the public face of the “Zuma must go” campaign to destabilize the BRICS process. Today Zuma continues to symbolize the RET agenda which Gordhan opposes.

Pillay’s links to Gordhan accordingly compels her to recuse herself as Judge from the case against Zuma. The fact that she has already issued a warrant of arrest, in circumstances that it was not necessary to do so as Zuma had a legitimate reason for his absence in court due to his illness for which appropriate medical certification was produced, is sufficient proof of her bias against him due to her conflict of interest situation.

We call for the Judge to recuse herself from this matter, as her close links with Gordhan compromises her ability to be fair and impartial in making any decisions in this case.
