Agang South Africa strongly condemns the Black First Land First (BLF) leader, Andile Mngxitama, for his irresponsible, unconstitutional, hateful utterances made at the party’s rally recently. Mngxitama is clearly heard in a video of the event saying ‘they’ will kill white people, their wives and their children. That is hate to its core and one should be jailed for making such comments in a Democratic country like South Africa, where racism is part of the core issues in our history. This statement made by Mngxitama is reprehensible and deterring. We are giving him 24 hours to retract his statement.
We urge the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to ban the BLF from participating in the upcoming 2019 elections. Such a party and leader are a danger to the country as a whole. We do not need criminals who are small minded in parliament or as leaders in the country.
Agang South Africa will take action in protecting any South African from being harmed by the BLF and it’s dangerous leader(s). Andile Mngxitama will have to kill us first before he kills white South Africans.
