South Africa’s National Assembly ruled in a 241-84 vote that the government will be removing all white farmers from their land. A ghastly decision which parallels what Mugabe did to Zimbabwe.
Radical Marxist and opposition leader Julius Malema is responsible for promoting this motion. He has been quoted saying to his supporters back in 2016, he was “not calling for the slaughter of white people — at least for now.”
Today Malema has been quoted saying,”The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice.”
Gugile Nkwinti, minister of water affairs, mirrored the Marxist’s sentiments, “The ANC (African National Congress) unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation. There is no doubt about it, land shall be expropriated without compensation.”
DA Member of Parliament Thandeka Mbabama disagrees with the move saying without compensation this “cannot be part of the solution,” continuing the issue is a distraction from the ANC’s land reform failures, a “lie peddled by the ANC, who fears being outflanked on the left by the EFF.”
Ernst Roets, Deputy CEO of AfriForum, stated, “This motion is based on a distorted image of the past. The term ‘expropriation without compensation’ is a form of semantic fraud. It is nothing more than racist theft.”
The Daily Mail noted, “A 2017 South African government audit found white people owned 72 percent of farmland.” This vote still has one more phase to go, however. The Constitutional Review Committee will report back to Parliament — their deadline is August 30 — with the final decision.
