JOHANNESBURG – Black First Land First leader Andile Mngxitama says his party will lay murder charges against Enterprise Foods and Rainbow Chicken.

This comes after the listeriosis bacteria was traced to three production plants belonging to the companies.

So far, 180 people have died, most of them in Gauteng.

Major retailers, including Shoprite, Pick n Pay and Woolworths, have already started pulling affected products off the shelves.

The BLF says that they will open murder cases at Hilbrow police station on Monday at noon and have threated further action against the company.

“Dear South Africans; #enterprise has known its killing us since 14 February and did nothing. BLF to open murder cases today 12pm Hillbrow police station,” Mngxitama tweeted.

“Actually #enterprise must be shut down! They knew for 18 days that they selling us poison and did f**ol! This is premeditated murder for profits. We must visit their head offices.”

The Enterprise factory in Germiston has also been temporally closed due to the listeriosis outbreak findings.

The health department is advising South Africans to avoid polony, viennas, russians and other ready-to-eat meat products for now as they are believed to be the source of the latest listeriosis outbreak.
