South Africa ‘sets date for white farmers land grab’ months after announcing ‘test case’ to see if ‘expropriation without compensation’ is legal

White South Africans could be forced to give up their own homes from next year as the nation’s government steamrolls through plans for land expropriation over claims ‘Africa’s original sin’ must be reversed.

Land is a huge issue in South Africa where racial inequality remains entrenched more than two decades after the end of apartheid when millions of the black majority were dispossessed of their land by a white minority.

The National Assembly agreed to the establishment of a committee that will draft an amendment to section 25 of the Constitution – a law which will allow the government to take homes from the people – and refuse to pay them compensation.

As many in the nation see the move as retribution for the ‘original sin’ when decades ago black people were driven off their land, it is believed white farmers will be driven from their homes immediately.

South African parliament brings country one step closer to seizing land from white farmers

MPs in South Africa have adopted a report on a proposed change to the constitution, which would allow land to be seized from white owners without compensation. An attempt to stop it in court failed last week.

On Tuesday, South African parliament approved a report which recommends changing the national constitution to allow the state to take privately-owned land without compensation as long as it is justified by public interest. Redistribution of land, supporters believe, would be beneficial to the South African public.

Beneficial to the public. Right. No wonder Justin loves Cyril.

Concern mounts as 100 set to return to South Africa from Isis camps

Durban – About 80 to 100 South Africans who have been at Islamic State camps abroad have returned home.

This is according to Na’eem Jeenah, director of the Afro-Middle East Centre (Amec), a think tank which focuses on research across North Africa and the Middle East on security and terrorism.

The centre hosted a seminar on Wednesday in Sydenham, Durban, on South Africa’s connection to Isis.

“We have had a number of returnees, about 80 to a 100, especially families. They are almost definitely under surveillance. Upon their return, they were interviewed by the State Security Agency (SSA) before being released and the government has been involved in ensuring their proper repatriation,” said Jeenah.

South Africa’s War Against White People

There is an insidious racism with which the West treats black African Marxist leaders. They are not held accountable to the same standards that whites are.

The interrogation to which U.S. Judge Brett Kavanaugh was submitted last week had the assiduity worthy of a war crimes tribunal. At the same time, South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa lied to the United Nations–with jejune consequence.

Katie Hopkins: Our NEW documentary about South Africa, “Plaasmoorde: the Killing Fields,” is here!

It follows my journey through South Africa, meeting the white farmers being systematically cleansed from the land.

There are victims, like lovely Marietta, whose face was blown away by a shotgun blast, or the beautiful Mariandra, who buried her husband after he was shot at point black range in his home. She gave birth to their first son five days later.

Trump Pulls Back the Shroud on South Africa

Loathe or admire the apprentice who became the president, all owe a debt to Donald Trump. Upon telling his secretary of state to home in on fears that Mandela’s legatees had declared open season on white farmers and farmland, the habituated tweeter provoked his opposite number to defend what, to many, seems gutter politics.

If a road to Hell is paved with good intentions, another road going to the same venue is paved with bad intentions. It’s the road South Africa is on.

A former president, Mr Mandela is a much-loved figure in South Africa, credited with ending white-minority rule.

Mabulu said that he was speaking on behalf of poor black South Africans.

“Mandela failed to deliver the dream and that makes him an equivalent of Hitler,” he told the BBC.

South Africa: Xenophobic violence resurfaces

Observers say migrants are being used as scapegoats in the latest wave of violent attacks. The government has been accused of failing to admit that xenophobia remains a serious issue in many townships.

A number of recent violent attacks in South Africa have served as a reminder that xenophobic violence remains very much a reality in a country still struggling with attitudes towards migrants.

Four people were reportedly killed in the Soweto area of Johannesburg last week by angry protestors. Mobs looted and destroyed properties belonging to foreign nationals, many of them Somalis, who were accused of selling fake and expired food products.
