BLF welcomes the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on state capture
Black First Land First (BLF) welcomes the announcement of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCOI) on state capture. President Zuma has done the right thing. The noisy chatter about state capture has been one-sided and has been used to shield the corruption of white monopoly capital. BLF hopes that the ‘Terms of Reference’ of the JCOI are broad enough to help uproot all corruption in South Africa (SA).
BLF shall actively participate in the work of the JCOI by providing information and evidence of white monopoly capital crimes in various areas. This includes instances of direct state capture via economic terrorism which has been used to control the state for example through the appointment of cabinet ministers. The saga of the R500 billion attack on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) by white monopoly capital to force the President to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Minister of Finance will be put before the JCOI.
BLF has evidence of several clear and beyond reasonable doubt instances of state capture by white monopoly capital which it will share with the commission. BLF encourages all to cooperate with the JCOI.
In the next few weeks BLF will outline the list of matters it will submit to the JCOI on state capture. We thank the President for acting on this important matter. Our country is suffocating under the yoke of white monopoly capital capture.
BLF calls on the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) not to waste time with regime change talks. It’s now time to implement Radical Economic Transformation (RET), not to organize a coup against the President of the country. Defend President Zuma; advance RET and welcome the Judicial Commission of Inquiry on state capture.
