Former EFF commissar for land and agrarian reform and BLF leader Andile Mngxitama is one man that has continued to show solidarity and unalloyed support to South African embattled President Jacob Zuma.
It’s no news that the young man has black liberation and severance of white monopoly on his brains. On a number of occasions, Mngxitama lost his cool over issues like racism; continuous ill-treatment of blacks by the DA and others related issues.
Reacting to the growing calls for Zuma to resign; the controversial BLF leader accused ‘corrupt whites’ of orchestrating and plotting his downfall. He also accused them of buying black politicians and trying to push a ‘puppet president’ to the seat of power.
He alleged in a statement: “President Zuma understands the tactics used by white capitalists to control South Africa and it is under his leadership that the distant dream of economic liberation could become a reality.
The white capitalists are not happy and now want to replace Zuma with a puppet president. We must not allow this [to be] a dead-end to economic liberation for the blacks”
The BLF leader encouraged black South Africans not to get frustrated with the downward movement of the economy; adding that Zuma would surely liberate them economically.

For the ANC, Mngxitama urged them to exercise their authority and power in ensuring that the plight of the blacks are addressed.
President Zuma’s rule has been tainted by scandal and heartbreaking controversies. A good number of ANC members also accused him of being responsible for the party’s freefalls in the country’s three pivotal urban centres during the local elections.
Last week, Mngxitama lost his cool against TUT FM station manager, Jeremy Thorpe; at the South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM) seminar on coalitions.
Andile went nuts after busy-bodied Thorpe interrupted his speech repeatedly, and also hurled unfounded accusations at South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng.
