White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament. The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema.

It passed by 241 votes for to 83 against after a vote on Tuesday, and the policy was a key factor in new president Cyril Ramaphosa’s platform after he took over from Jacob Zuma in February. Mr Malema said the time for ‘reconciliation is over’. ‘Now is the time for justice,’ News24 reported. ‘We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.’

COMMENT: This is a nonsense comment that is based on a deliberate misunderstanding of history. According to missionary records much of the land was not occupied. The arrival of white settlers, which goes back before the discovery of America, revolutionized farming. The technology and culture introduced provided more reliable food sources and much improved medical and hygiene facilities. Some tribes in the region engaged in war with each other and allegedly carried out genocidal acts against the vanquished. The black population has burgeoned like never before.

A 2017 government audit found white people owned 72 per cent of farmland

COMMENT: Confiscation of land is one that has been repeated many times under communist regimes and usually ends in disaster as the new occupiers lack the expertise to generate sufficient food to sustain a population. Cape Town has suffered water shortages since under the Zumar regime the adopted a policy where a workforce was apportioned by race. As it meant that 8% of the population were while then only 8% of water engineers could be white. That meant that most engineers lacked sufficient expertise to do the job.

Rural affairs minister for the ruling African National Congress party said ‘The ANC unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation’.

Mr Malema has a long-standing commitment to land confiscation without compensation. In 2016 he told his supporters he was ‘not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’. COMMENT: This is an implicit threat of genocide and follows on from very violent attacks being carried out on white farmers.

‘There is no doubt about it, land shall be expropriated without compensation.’

Freedom Front Plus party leader Pieter Groenewald said the decision to strip white farmers of their land would cause ‘unforeseen consequences that is not in the interest of South Africa’.
