More pressure for the West.
Watch and see how well constitutional protections hold up in South Africa.
White landowners prepare to flee.
And they don’t even need to “reform” the law to seize the land, they just do it – NOW.
THE South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.
Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.
While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land — they’re being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million).
“Notice is hereby given that a terrain inspection will be held on the farms on April 5, 2018 at 10am in order to conduct an audit of the assets and a handover of the farm’s keys to the state,” a letter sent to the owners earlier this year said.
Akkerland Boerdery obtained an urgent injunction to prevent eviction until a court had ruled on the issue, but the Department of Rural Development and Land Affairs is opposing the application.
“What makes the Akkerland case unique is that they apparently were not given the opportunity to first dispute the claim in court, as the law requires,” AgriSA union spokeswoman Annelize Crosby told the paper.
Imagine that, illegal actions in defiance of the existing law. One also might wonder where all the virtuous know-it-alls of the 1980’s are now. Remember them and apartheid? They’re absent, of course, at the moment. But they will chime in, heavily, in around five years when the famine and chaos hit SA hard. Will they play Sun City???
