Black First Land First released its report on Apartheid Corruption and other economic crimes earlier today (http://wp.me/p65GFe-5i), which shows how over R500 billion was stolen from South Africa. Black First Land First condemns all acts of corruption, including a raft of serious transgressions under the current ANC government. However we believe an interrogatory spotlight needs to be placed first and foremost on corruption and economic crimes by the leaders, perpetuators and beneficiaries of apartheid.

“Massive theft by white capital, both now and under apartheid, needs to be fully probed, without fear or favour. Stolen money must be recovered and used to help rebuild an economy shattered by shocking and large-scale apartheid corruption and economic crime” says National Convener, Andile Mngxitama.

“This current fixation on Nkandla as the epitome of corruption by political groupings such as EFF, DA, the Vavi coalition and their rightwing marching companions, Solidarity and Agriforum, serves to mute public outrage on this grand historical theft”.

The report compiled by Black First Land First shows that approximately R556 billion was stolen through these crimes of corruption – and this is likely to simply be the tip of the iceberg. R134 billion is recoverable immediately.
