Black First Land First (BLF) says it had warned the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) against giving political power to whites and being in coalition with the Democratic Alliance (DA), who according to the BLF in a statement released yesterday was never the “better devil” but the “ultimate devil”, adding that Julius Malema was Helen Zille’s poodle.
BLF released the statement in response to Nelson Mandela Bay Deputy Major and UDM deployee Mongameli Bobani being voted out in a motion of no-confidence. BLF says that the Patriotic Alliance voted with the DA to give the EFF a dose of their own “better devil” medicine.
The EFF famously said it would vote with the DA in the municipal elections aftermath, explaining that they were choosing the better devil, referring to the DA as the better devil than the African National Congress. BLF said on Friday that the DA was the ultimate devil, using the EFF and UDM as garden boys
“The DA was never the better the devil – it is the ultimate devil. The DA in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality (NMB) has just shown up the EFF and the United Democratic Movement (UDM) as its garden boys and voting cattle to keep it in power. BLF had consistently warned about giving political power to whites. Now the DA has shown just who is the boss. It is also clear that the EFF and UDM can do fokol about that – their job is to keep Helen Zille in power!”
BLF said that the EFF has threatened on numerous occasions to break the EFF-DA cooperation, but that EFF leader Julius Malema is nothing more than Zille’s poodle.
“It must be remembered that Malema has on numerous occasions threatened to break the EFF’s coalition with the DA. Now he is exposed as a noisy poodle of Helen Zille. The EFF can’t break the coalition with the DA for the simple reason that it was never its decision to enter into the coalition but the decision of its handler from London, Lord Robin Renwick. Only Renwick can break the coalition, not Malema”, said the BLF.
The BLF said that not long ago Malema said that if the DA did not remove Helen Zille as Premier of the Western Cape, then the EFF would break the coalition. The DA ignored Malema – Zille is still Premier of the Western Cape. All it took for Malema to back off from ending the coalition is one telephone call from London, said BLF.
“Only BLF is fighting Helen Zille and her racism because it is not captured by London like the EFF. Bantu Holomisa is a dizzy former homeland leader who follows the whims of white monopoly capital. The DA has shown him flames”.
BLF added that a vote for the EFF is a vote for the DA, before congratulating PA leader Gayton Mckenzie for getting one over Malema. “It is absolutely clear that to vote for the EFF is to vote for the DA indirectly. In the next few days the PA may take the seat of the Deputy Mayor in NMB – Gayton Mckenzie has check-mated his old rival. BLF also warns the PA, ‘Beware of whites’. They are not your friends, ask Malema.
“BLF calls on black people to remain vigilant and to never give whites political power under any circumstances. The DA is not a ‘better devil’. It is the ultimate devil! The EFF has sold its soul to the devil for British pounds”, said the BLF.
