- Political parties are gearing up for the 2019 elections and so have the BLF
- They need R605 000 to participate in the elections and called on their followers to help them raise the money
- BLF launched a crowdfunding campaign to collect money from followers
The Black First Land First political party is calling on their supporters to help them raise money so they can be part of the 2019 elections.
BLF needs to raise their deposit money to take part in the general elections if they want to take on the ANC, EFF or DA.
The political party released a statement and announced that they need help in getting together the R605 000 deposit. And so a crowdfund campaign was launched.
They have turned to their supporters to really show their support and send them the money they need.
The Citizen reports that the campaign will be raising money for other projects as well, like building houses and upgrading schools.
The campaign was launched at the Sophunga Primary School in Inanda, KwaZulu-Natal.
Although the IEC confirmed that BLF has registered for the elections, the SA Human Rights Commission wants their eligibility to be reviewed.
According to the SAHRC, BLF is often making violent threats to white people.
SAHRC pointed out slogans used by BLF like “one settler, one bullet”, “land or death”, and “by any means necessary”.
