Black First Land First (BLF) has told journalists that the organisation is preparing to grab land all across the country.

BLF leader Andile Mngxitama said on Wednesday that they have been identifying “white stolen land”.

“Black people are landless, we don’t have the land. We are just taking small pieces here and there but we are [now] taking more and more. You will see that the campaign is going to intensify … 31st December is the night when we are going to make sure that we are ready. We are setting up land expropriation committees across the nation, identifying white stolen land.”

The organisation have land grabs planned for this coming Saturday in Ekurhuleni.


“There is no battle lost here. The battle continues, in fact, the battle has just started. Show us any racist and you will see us dealing with that racist very fast. Racism must come to an end now. No one must feel comfortable that the court decision said racists have the right to be racist,” said Mngxitama.

Do you think BLF will get away with such land grabs? Especially given their rocky relationship with Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula.
