Hands off Zuma, BLF leader warns Ramaphosa


Staff Reporter

JOHANNESBURG- Black First Land First (BLF) has issued a stern warning to President Cyril Ramaphosa for what they labelled as ‘continued unwarranted attacks’ on former president Jacob Zuma.

This follows after former President Jacob Zuma took to Twitter to respond to claims that he had used the intelligence services (SSA) for his own political and personal interests and said the committee, set-up by President Cyril Ramaphosa, had two well-known apartheid spies and hoped people were not opening a can of worms which they may regret.

BLF leader, Andile Mngxitama said: “BLF is angered by the continued unwarranted attacks on President Jacob Zuma by the Ramaphosa-Stellenbosch faction. Ramaphosa has no shame. He has now mandated the self-confessed hater of President Zuma, one Sydney Mafumadi, to invent propaganda against President Zuma. The so-called report on Zuma’s alleged abuse of intelligence services is nothing but a desperate attempt to manufacture new charges against President Zuma.

“BLF is aware that land thieves and owners of the South African economy like Johann Rupert and the Oppenheimer family want President Zuma in jail. The Mafumadi so-called ‘High Panel’ is nothing but a tool of white monopoly capital to prepare grounds to lay another set of false charges against President Zuma”, Mngxitama said.

According to BLF, former President Jacob Zuma’s only sin was to introduce Radical Economic Transformation (RET) and for this reason, they will continue to stand with former President Zuma against the unjust persecutions.

Mngxitama further added: “President Zuma is being punished for saying land expropriation without compensation must be implemented. President Zuma is punished for rejecting the World Bank and IMF for BRICS. President Zuma is punished for taking South Africa out of the white man’s kangaroo court called the International Criminal Court”.

“BLF wants all justice-loving people to know, voting for Ramaphosa is to vote for the arrest of President Zuma. We say defend President Zuma, vote for BLF. The presence of BLF in parliament will assist to expose the dirty tricks by white monopoly capital and its abuses. Do not vote and then regret after. Do not vote for your own tormentors. Vote for liberation. Vote for BLF, we repeat, Hands off President Zuma! We want our land back now!”.
