Black First Land First is a party that was founded in 2015 by Andile Mngxitama following his expulsion from the Economic Freedom Fighters. Vice president Cyril Ramaphosa said the party is utterly racist and it should be banned.
Ramaphosa said the BLF is wrong in every way citing that a party that exist only to promote violence against a certain minority group is very bad for a young democracy. He compared BLF to the KKK a racist group in USA that promote discrimination towards black people.
They are only good for terrorism and starting civil war
The vice president said a lot have been done to put previously disadvantaged people first and an organisation like BLF will give South Africa a very bad image.
“In a democratic country parties like BLF have no place. They are only good for terrorism and starting civil war because no one is just going to sit down and be discriminated in their own country, It’s a very sensitive topic in South Africa to acknowledge the good things white people did to make South Africa what it is today”. Said Ramaphosa.
Ramaphosa is already receiving a strong negative reaction by a large number of people for his statement.
