- Black First Land First called for black DA members to leave the DA and join their movement
- The BLF also called for black DA members to take white leaders' homes
- The DA has asked Parliament to ban the movement from meetings after several disruptions by the BLF in recent weeks
Black First Land First wants black DA leaders and members to join the BLF instead and leave the Democratic Alliance.
BLF made news headlines earlier this week when they caused a storm in Parliament. John Steenhuisen, a DA member of Parliament and chief whip, called for the BLF to be banned from sitting in on parliamentary meetings. However, the BLF lashed back at Steenhuisen in a strong-worded statement.
One of BLF's members manhandled SA billionaire, Nicky Oppenheimer, according to a report by The Citizen.
Apparently, members of the party were shouting "shut down Fireblade" and surrounded the Oppenheimers. It appeared that they wanted to get physical with the billionaires.
In the latest statement released by the BLF, the party described the DA as:
“The party of Helen Zille the colonialist and Tony Leon the son of the apartheid-hanging judge Ramon Leon”
In the statement, the BLF also claimed Leon's father had:
“dismissed Solomon Mahlangu’s appeal against the death sentence and sentenced Andrew Zondo to the noose”.
The movement then said Steenhuisen's attempts to ban them from parliamentary meetings was a 'a declaration of war' against the BLF and that, in response, the party will, according to the statement, defend itself to the full extent of its revolutionary ethics.
In the statement, which is headlined: “BLF to expropriate the farms and houses of white DA leaders”, the statement makes does not make any reference to specifically targeting DA leaders regarding land reform.
The party has a strong stance on land expropriation, and has on many occasions said it wants all the land under white ownership. It is unclear if the radical movement will go after DA leaders' land first when they try execute their plan.
J’Something landed up in the middle of a debate between the BLF and EFF over whether or not the Micasa front man should be able to keep his property if either one of the party’s should win the upcoming election.
J’something was minding his own business, possibly cooking or playing some music, when he unknowingly became the central point of a heated debate between Malema and Mngxitama over Twitter.
