CAPE TOWN - The Facebook page of a website called Black Opinion understood to be linked to the Black First Land First movement says it is looking into the recent shutdown of its domain.

The Internet Services' Provider Association made the move following a complaint it received last week from a South African expat.

Martin Peake took it upon himself to launch a petition against state capture.

He wrote to the association after he discovered the website was registered to a BLF member.

On social media, Black Opinion stated it will look into the matter, saying that black voices will not be silenced.

Peake complained that the website promoted racial hatred.

“The racists work and intimidation of journalists and various links to articles that were relevant to their infamous nature. I notified them that this website was part of the greater Gupta website network.”

The Black Opinion website has been taken down. We are looking into the matter. Black voices will not be silenced!
