The Black First Land First party will be appearing before the state capture inquiry to submit evidence detailing what they labelled as corrupt activities undertaken by Minister Pravin Gordhan and Nhlanhla Nene. BLF claims that under their watch R4.3 billion was looted
Black First Land First will be using their appearance before the inquiry into state capture to submit evidence in relation to corrupt activities at Treasury during the tenure of Pravin Gordhan and Nhlanhla Nene.
BLF plans to table evidence on what they describe as criminal conduct by the pair. The party claims that crimes committed by Gordhan and Nene have resulted in over R4.3 billion being stolen.
The party claims that Nene and Gordhan acted in favor of 'white monopoly capital' when they took part in state capture.
“White monopoly capital has bankrupted South Africa, made us subservient to the west and is the author and facilitator of the most devastating corruption in the country. It is only BLF that has the fighting will to confront white monopoly capital so as to end its corruption and looting of the economy.”
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that the submission will be led by the deputy president of the party, Zanele Lwana, who will be presenting evidence to support their allegations. The hearing will take place on the 12th of February.
“The criminal conduct of Gordhan and Nene relate to each of them covering up and/or being complicit in offences that were committed by their respective deputy ministers of finance, director generals, executive officers, and audit committees.”
The party will also submit evidence implicating 'white capital entities' in state capture, including people like Johan Rupert, the Oppenheimer family, Markus Jooste and Adriano Mazzotti.
