Has The New Afrikan Black Panther Party Misappropriated Funds For A Children’s Bus Program? Answering a False Critique Of Gazi Kodzo (2020)

van2As we have stated, the New Afrikan Black Panther Party (NABPP) is always open to criticism and accountability to the people, even erroneous criticisms.

On May 7, 2020 criticisms surfaced as a result of social media posts from Gazi Kodzo of the Black Hammer Organization (BHO), claiming Shaka Sankofa Zulu, chairman of NABPP, had stolen funds raised by the Party for a children’s bus program.

In support of these claims Gazi posted a message thread that he claimed was directed to comrade Shaka from a leading member of the NABPP, which asked where the money was.

The charges and implications of Gazi’s criticisms were known by Gazi to be false.

Foremost, the NABPP has never been involved in nor raised funds for any children’s bus program.

Gazi was furthermore deliberately dishonest claiming the message came from a leading member of the NABPP. The message, although it was addressed to Shaka, was one side of a private argument that happened between Shaka and this writer’s partner, Shupavu Wa Kirima.

Shupavu is not and has never been a member of the NABPP nor the UPM. Gazi knows this. In fact she and Gazi were close friends until my recent criticisms of Gazi, and she’d shared that message with him in confidence. Gazi actually betrayed her trust in publicizing something she confided in him in friendship and private, which he is now trying to use as leverage to level a false critique against Shaka.

But in that the question of funds for a NABPP bus program has been raised, we will point out that the NABPP did have a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to purchase a bus, van or other automobile(s) for a PRISON bus program. The aim of which being to provide the people free transportation to visit loved ones in prison.

This campaign succeeded in both raising the $5000 we sought and we’ve purchased a van for the bus program, although it did take some time to find a suitable vehicle within our price range. Photos of that vehicle are posted with this article. We are also looking to obtain more vehicles for the program. Which answers the false criticisms leveled by Gazi against comrade Shaka for allegedly misappropriating funds.

It also demonstrates Gazi’s dishonesty in throwing out false accusations intended to smear and discredit comrades, just as he proposed to do to leaders of revolutionary groups in the recently exposed scheme of Gazi and BHO, code-named Operation Storm of White Tears.[1] Not to mention the betrayal of information shared with him in the confidence of a close friendship. So beware to anyone who confides in Gazi as a friend or comrade. He’s apt to use it against them or someone else to create and spread a false, slanderous narrative when he has an agenda or axe to grind.

The people need honest and trustworthy leaders.

Dare to Struggle Dare to Win!
All Power to the People!
