  1. Good luck . It seems those working in low paying Jobs are not from South Africa . If Whites gone those African from Zimbabwe or other African countries will take over since they have more work experience than South African citizen. And also Chinese.

  2. Land should be looked at as a business venture in South Africa.The easiest way to get the land issue sorted in South Africa is not through land fragmentation and partial reclamation. The government of South Africa should buy back the land from the current ownership by shareholding. That means the land use and management will be run like publicly quoted companies with the original owners as directors of same companies by share holding. It means they can sell any portion of land they want through shareholding as they will still benefit from it's use in all it's diversity in geography and use. A statutory percentage share surrender (payable by government to the land owners ) to the government needs to be reached gradually . This is important because the government might not have adequate funds to buy all shares floated. Remember this share sale will encourage more of the current ownership to surrender their land ownership shareholding. After all they are not loosing the land physically but in value of business.
    Once shareholding is achieved the disenfranchised local people can be sold the shares by the government or they can form societies in which the government can proportionately sell or surrender it's shares to ex gratia for downward allocations.
    That way South African land can remain productive for the economy of south Africa and all will benefit. No one can say they don't own the land only that the ownership will be in the value of shareholding entitled to dividend every year. Every South African can own land anywhere by buying shares which shall be floated in their stock market. You may call this delocalization of land in South Africa .

  3. They should have done it as soon as yesterday because Chinese are coming to invest black South Africans should benefit from that not only our oppressors grandchildren that are cold like their ancestors

  4. This country will be just like Venezuela and Nicaragua in 20 years! They are following the same formula.These idiots! Once you start doing things like this the people with money leave the country! I have seen this in several counties and the educated class will leave and you have no tax base or investors remaining!

  5. The Forecast will shows black clouds of deep hungry,starvation,eartquakes of misery and crimes,strong winds of poverty joined with dicesasses and heavy rains of social conflicts with the happy ending of the national disaster.Dont go outthere anymore…and if you are forced to do it,please dont forget your armored cap and your umbrella of 45 mm….have a lovely death!!!!

  6. 2nd amendment: the right to protect yourself from a tyrannical government. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’ช

  7. Also….let the united states stop focus on south africa and now try to focus on how to care for all the children left behind by their parents in our country…lets use it to care for them and in securing borders so that their law breaking parents cannot try to enter yet another time…

  8. When so many missioners come with a calling to educate, give medical care, clean water, and give food to the struggling people of south africa…and tbey risk tbeir own health to do that….how can these people have no care for other people who have used the land for food production and to give workers an income…We all know what happens when people bite the hands that feed them….

  9. Yes, Carol Khisa , I understand the point in relation to farm land but the point i was trying to make was what about someone who has paid for a house for example ,with their own hard earned money ? Is that person considered to have also stolen land , even though another individual has received payment for it ? It seems a very troubling prospect for the ordinary citizen trying to plan for the future. I wonder if a title deed is worth the paper it's printed on ——- if you happen to be white in present day SA ?

  10. Nothing is wrong with giving back some of the unused land owned by former colonialists, even in small Caribbean islands that I have visited, thousands of acres of unused land is owned by whites who doesnโ€™t even attempt to plant one crop so why hold on to these lands when so many millions are homeless and landless..
    I say keep what is cultivated and hand over the rest, the greed of the 1900s are behind us now..if you do not hand it over then I say to all Africans…claim your land now…
