They kept warning us and now it’s happening! The white-owned farms in Africa are being seized. There are two farms ready to be taken first and 139 on the list. Farmers have already been attacked in relation to being white-skinned farm owners, and now their farms are just being taken from them. Imagine running a business your entire life and someone takes it from you because of the color of your skin. Where is the media outrage? Where is the liberal outrage? These are hard-working people who provide food for the community and they’re being ripped away from their own business for what? Because they’re white? What kind of nonsense is that?
Besides the fact that people are going to lose their job, property, and basically their entire life when they get kicked off their own farms, there’s simply not enough mainstream media coverage on this. You would think that a major news publication like CNN would have at least ONE story on their homepage about it, but they don’t. Why not?
Right before publishing this story, I grabbed a screenshot of the top half of CNN’s homepage. The bottom half of their page didn’t mention anything about this story either. Sure, it’s not American news, but it’s a HUGE DEAL that people should be worried about. This is the abuse of the government in an obviously racist plot to eliminate white farmers in South Africa.
Even worse, it’s the South African government who is responsible for seizing the land from white farmers. There are two farms that are already targeted for seizure, and this comes after the owners had reportedly turned down an offer to sell their land for about 1/10 worth of the value. Talk about absolute malarkey!! This is more than just about the color of their skin, but this is about the big government taking someone’s land because they refused to give it away. This is terrible and should be stopped.
As per Australian News, a 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.
It comes as the South African government pushes ahead with plans to amend the country’s constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation.
The seizures are intended to test the ability of the government to take land under existing laws, which the ruling African National Congress has previously stated is allowable if “in the public interest”.
Earlier this month, City Press reported the government had drawn up a list of 139 farms it planned to seize “to test out” section 25 of the constitution.”
How can one government go so far as to amend the constitution of their land to take away the land of farmers who work hard and provide food for people? How can they take people’s land away without paying them for the true value of what it’s worth? How can they target white people only and think that’s acceptable in 2018?
I thought we were beyond all the racial nonsense, but apparently, the government of South Africa is up for playing some tricks. Sadly enough, there have been people who lost their lives fighting for their farms. What’s going on in South Africa that this out of line practice is taking place?
Even though the number of attacks on white farmers has decreased over the years, the fact that people are attacking farmers is the biggest problem. Farmers provide jobs, food, and help boost the economy. I don’t understand why they’re being targeted, but I hope it ends and people in South Africa can carry on with their business and make things better.
This is just terrible what’s going on over there and something needs to be done to fix it.
