The Black First Land First (BLF) movement says the Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane is being bullied to become an agent of white monopoly capital.
According to the movement, those bullying the Public Protector did the same thing to Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
“The method of breaking down senior state officials into being servants of white monopoly capital was perfected through its application on Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
“They started with massive attacks on him and then praised him whenever he criticised the President. The attacks became unbearable for him.
“After a while, the allure and relief of white praise pulled him decisively into the side of white monopoly capital. This is what they are doing with the Public Protector right now,” BLF stated.
BLF called on South Africans to not just defend the Public Protector but to also, support her recommendation for ABSA to pay back the money it unduly benefited from the government; and her call for the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) to be transformed to serve the interests of the people instead of white monopoly capital.
“The campaign of vilification and constant loud voices calling for the Public Protector to step down are calculated to wear her down and finally bully her into being an agent of white monopoly capital, just like her predecessor, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, who served white monopoly capital with distinction,” added BLF.
The movement went on and asserted that it is appalled by the systematic attacks on the Public Protector.
“The attacks are synchronised and well coordinated by agents of white monopoly capital. The sin of the Public Protector was to find that ABSA must pay back the money it stole from the people and that SARB must stop being a tool of capitalist accumulation… Hands off the Public Protector!” BLF charged.
