Black First Land First (BLF) leader Andile Mngxitama has once again warned that white people are taking advantage of divisions among South African natives. Not only that, but they also encourage division through the formation of so many political parties, he said.
“There are 356 political parties registered with the [Electoral Commission] IEC. 99% of these are black parties. Stellenbosch encourages this fracturing of the black vote; whilst consolidating the white vote. If we aren’t careful abelungu shall rule again,” the BLF president wrote on X social media platform.
In an exclusive interview with Vulankungu, Mngxitama further highlighted that the one big advantage African people have over Europeans living in South Africa, is numbers.
“We are a numerically superior group. That is why white people excluded us from the political system to create a fake majority so that they can make laws and so on. The biggest threat to white supremacy is our numerical strength.
“The destruction of the [African National Congress] ANC is part of that big plan because if it remains united in power, possibilities of implementing Radical Economic Transformation can be achieved by comrades led by Jacob Zuma,” he observed.
Mngxitama said he appreciates former president Zuma’s call when he says the ANC must be pulled back to the right direction of serving black people through voting for the MK (uMkhonto weSizwe), which is carrying out the cause that has been abandoned by the governing party.
On the issue of Cape Independence, he believes “white people can see that in the Cape they can rely on the coloured vote to help them create a white homeland system” in that province.
“We must not allow it; we must reject that notion with the contempt it deserves,” he appealed, adding that multiple provinces mimic the old homeland system.
Recently, Zuma suggested that the Eastern Cape should be combined with the Western Cape to form one province that will be called The Cape. This is after many white people living there have been making calls for the Western Cape to stand alone as an independent state.
Zuma argues that there is no need for South Africa to have nine provinces. Instead, the former president said the country’s native population should use its voting power to create four provinces and stop the idea of the Western Cape being independent.
Based on the current set-up, Mngxitama contends that South Africa is not a nation yet.
“We are little tribal groups locked up in provinces which some of them don’t even make sense. So, we need to consolidate into a national consciousness, what I call Azanianness, and rename this country.
“Get the land back, rename ourselves and create a new culture of black pride so that we can feel the national soil on our feet and share in the wealth that God has given this country,” the BLF leader stressed.
