BackABuddy decided to stop accepting political campaigns altogether after they removed the BLF campaign on Friday.

Anyone who wants to donate money to the BLF will have to contact them directly, according to a report by The Citizen.

BLF promised the campaign will be raising money for other projects as well, like building houses and upgrading schools.

According to the political party, their funding campaign was shut down because of the Oppenheimers.

A few days ago, Briefly reported that members of BLF were forcefully removed from a Home Affairs meeting after causing a chaotic disruption.
