Where is Mr Y Judge Zondo?

Where is Mr Y Judge Zondo?

Black First Land First (BLF) is appalled by the systemic targeting of the party’s President, Andile Mngxitama, by the Zondo Commission.

In the notice marked 8th January 2021 the Commission‘s secretary who is the former President of Azapo, Professor Itumeleng Mosala, notified President Mngxitama that a government spy named Mr Y was going to implicate him in various unlawful activities such as money laundering, tax evasion and corruption. The notice further said that the spy would be protected by the Zondo Commission and his testimony would be in secret. No reasons were provided for this kangaroo court arrangement.

The secret testimony of the spy, Mr Y, is expected between 25th and 29th January 2021. Surprisingly only on Saturday 23rd January 2021, did the Commission send an email saying Mr Y will not testify but a substitute spy named Ms K will testify on the affidavit deposed by Mr Y.

No reasons for the sudden non availability of Mr Y were provided. BLF believes that the Commission is deliberately lying about the so called Mr Y’s non availability. We call on Judge Zondo to tell the nation under oath, where is Mr Y? Secondly, we are appalled by the obvious breaking of the rules of evidence by the Zondo Commission, including presenting through another person (Ms K) the evidence of Mr Y, which was deposed to in his affidavit. This is a comical situation of hearsay evidence, all calculated to tarnish the name of the President of BLF in a year of elections.

BLF has instructed its lawyers to advice on the way forward. It’s ironic that the Commission has elected to jump the unfinished testimony of Brian Molefe by bringing the proceedings to an end under the guise of one of its officials catching Covid-19. Now they are targeting Mngxitama who is a known opponent of white monopoly capital that seems to have captured the Zondo Commission.

We ask Judge Zondo to immediately disclose the truth about the spy named Mr Y.

BLF will in due course hold a press conference to reveal the dirty tricks of the Zondo Commission.

UZondo uzonda uZuma

UZondo uzonda uZuma

BLF believes the open bias of Judge Zondo shows that he has descended to naked hatred of President Zuma. It now seems that Judge Zondo has allowed his ambition to become Chief Justice to cloud his sense of fairness. Taking to the media to harangue President Zuma without so much as allowing reasonable time to formulate a response to the threat of a subpoena to appear before the impatient judge shows the hand of Judge Zondo. It is now clear that Judge Zondo is campaigning to get the nod for the job of Chief Justice by doing the dirty job of President Ramaphosa who is the main ideological foe of the Radical Economic Transformation agenda pushed by President Zuma.

It’s hard not to believe that Judge Zondo is not in a job-hunting spree. So determined is the judge to get the approval of President Ramaphosa who is the final arbiter in the appointment of the CJ, that Zondo has adopted an open antagonistic attitude towards President Zuma. No other witness has been treated in the openly biased and contemptuous manner as President Zuma has been subjected to. Minister Pravin Gordhan has openly defied the commission with no consequences. As a matter of fact, Judge Zondo is protecting Pravin Gordhan. BLF has submitted evidence of corruption implicating Pravin Gordhan to the commission. Initially, a date was given for BLF to appear before the commission. Then no further communication has been received from the commission despite numerous emails of enquiry from us.

It is clear that uZondo uzonda uZuma. It would seem that Judge Zondo has converted his ambition to be chief justice into hating President Zuma to ensure he is recognized as a defender of President Ramaphosa. This is unfortunate but provides enough reason to assume that President Zuma will be prejudiced by Judge Zondo. Zondo must do the right thing and recuse himself from any further hearing of the Zuma testimony.

BLF condemns coordinated attacks on Dudu Myeni

BLF condemns coordinated attacks on Dudu Myeni

State institutions meant to protect every citizen are used to persecute those considered hostile to white monopoly capital (WMC). Ms Dudu Myeni, the former board chairperson of the South African Airways (SAA), is facing a well funded and well coordinated judicial attack by forces of reaction. The white right wing groups masked as civil society entities are using the untransformed courts to stop the program of Radical Economic Transformation (RET).

Dudu Myeni is being persecuted for wanting change at SAA. The nation still doesn’t know that the source of the SAA crisis is a white American man called Coleman Andrews who took over R200 million for himself after selling off aircrafts belonging to the national carrier to his friends and promptly allowing them to be leased back to the SAA.

It’s the height of hypocrisy that Dudu Myeni is in court and Coleman Andrews is enjoying the loot he got from the SAA.

Black First Land First (BLF) will be submitting a complaint of state capture, by Coleman Andrews and his gang, to the Zondo Commission.

As Black First Land First (BLF) we have been left with no other option but to conclude that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture (Zondo Commission) is a weapon against Radical Economic Transformation (RET) to advance the interests of white monopoly capital (WMC).

Over R4.3 billion was disappeared by corruption under his watch at the National Treasury. He instituted an internal audit which confirmed that some of the companies he has shares in were implicated in the corruption of tenders. Pravin Gordhan unlawfully suppressed the audit. He didn’t take the necessary action that he was legally obliged to do.

Furthermore, BLF has acquired a forensic audit which gives further details of the corruption and the parties involved. This forensic audit report too was supressed by Pravin Gordhan. Yet again he broke the law and engaged in obvious criminal acts relating to state capture.

BLF was given a date to appear before Judge Zondo following it’s submission to the commission on 28 November 2018 regarding, amongst other things, the role and interests of Pravin Gordhan in state capture relating to the said disappearance of the over R4.3 billion from Nation Treasury.

After a legitimate postponement of the meeting with the assigned evidence leader, Advocate Ngcekeshe, the commission has been stalling and avoiding BLF. The assigned date came and passed. BLF has written four letters to the commission in this regard with no response.

The Zondo Commission is selective and biased. Judge Zondo seems to have given into the pressure of London and Stellenbosch. It seems like he is protecting Pravin Gordhan.

In 2020 BLF will take both legal and direct action to get the Zondo Commission to do its work and to stop acting like Johann Rupert’s kangaroo court.
