The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) is lying when it says that members of the Revelation Church of God attacked the police. Black First Land First (BLF) visited the church yesterday in response to a report it received that the church was invaded by the JMPD. When BLF leadership arrived at the church they were briefed about the incident by the church leadership and to this end shown video material.
From the evidence, including the testimonies, presented it is clear that the church members who disarmed the police did a civil and Godly deed. In an arrogant attempt to intimidate the congregation, a metro police officer wielded his gun and shot recklessly as if he was in a movie.
BLF believes that if the JMPD members were not disarmed, a lot of people could have been injured or killed. It looks like the JMPD is given a license to forcibly and illegally evict black people from the Johannesburg City. The attack on the church must be understood in the context of the intention of the racist Democratic Alliance (DA) to keep Johannesburg (Jo’burg) white.
BLF condemns the DA for once again abusing the JMPD for its racist programe. BLF has asked the High Court for a declaratory order that Herman Mashaba is not fit and proper person to be a Mayor. Furthermore, BLF has asked the Court to declare the actions of the JMPD to be illegal. The abuse of the Metro Police by the DA must stop. BLF condemns the evictions of blacks from the Jo’burg City. Moreover, BLF condemns the evil deed of attacking worshippers who were peacefully praying.
We stand with the Revelation Church of God against the harassment by the DA controlled JMPD. Down with evictions down!
