26 Members of Black First Land First (BLF) will appear at the Pretoria Magistrate’s court for bail application this morning. They face charges of “public violence and trespassing”. Our members didn’t commit any violence and it’s illogical to accuse citizens of trespassing in a public building.
BLF notes the lies peddled by the office of the public protector. There was no hostage taking that happened at any stage during the peaceful visit to the office.
The office of the public protector is lying to the nation to deflect attention from the fact that her office is protecting white corruption. The real issue BLF wants resolved is the five year old investigation of the R26 billion stolen by whites.
BLF will address the media after court.
Zanele Lwana and Lindsay Maasdorp are both BLF Spokespersons
