BLF congratulates and welcomes back the true hero of South Africa world champion Wyde Van Niekerk. His performance at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) world championships dispels the lie that black athletes are not talented. The disregard of his achievements by the ANC government and the Minister of white teams Fikile Mbalula shows the conspiracy of the South African government against black people in general and athletes and sports people as well.
We see how Mbalula shouted his voice coarse in support of the white Springboks and forgot the black champion who found no one but family at the airport when he returned with a gold medal. Racism is alive and protected by the ANC government.
We blacks honour and thank van Niekerk for the splendid performance. He is a true hero of our people.
