Black First Land First (BLF) is taking its manifesto launch for the upcoming Local Government Elections to the Vaal in Gauteng on Saturday morning.
Party leader Andile Mngxitama is scheduled to deliver the keynote address in trying to attract potential voters in the province.
The party had participated in the last General Elections in 2019, but failed to make it to the national assembly. That led to Mngxitama accusing the Independent Electoral Commission of miss managing the election results, however, decided not to challenge the IEC.
As November 1 approaches, BLF says it doesn’t want to be left behind and will go all out in attracting potential voters for these elections.
Mngxitama is expected to be joined by party members at Orange Farm as he launches the BLF election manifesto. The party is eying all the major municipalities in Gauteng, including the City of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni.

In the video below, Mngxitama maintains that although BLF has amended its Constitution, white people are not welcome in the party:
