It could be that some criminals have hijacked the threat made by Black First Land First to burn whites following a video released on Monday.
As received in our inbox, an alleged group of BLF members on Wednesday night set a white security guard on fire who foiled their robbery attack.
According to the report, a gang of three men wore BLF party uniforms with faces masked during the attack in a KZN shopping mall.
They were attempting to hijack a customers vehicle when the security guard raised an alarm to alert other guards around.
The suspects who drove off later came back to the scene after some minutes and ambushed the guard.
The guard who was badly burned died in the hospital while receiving treatment in a nearby hospital.
The party members released a video threatening to go to the gas station, buy gas and burn whites.
“We are going to gas stations to buy gas and burn whites”
The vicious group have stated that they are ready to lay down their lives and also kill for the land, as they were not ready to pay any compensation to those who forcefully took the land away from them.
This is not the first time the BLF movement would be issuing similar threatening videos and messages to the public.
In December 2018, the Johannesburg Bar Council has condemned the “vicious racial attack” against a white advocate at the court precinct by members of the BLF.
Also, during that period the twitter account of BLF leader Andile Mngxitama was taken down over alleged racial slur and threat.
