South Africa is sliding, sliding …
Next step, to be like Zimbabwe and throw whites off their productive farms:
President Jacob Zuma said 2017 is the year of ‘taking land back to the people’ and for this reason government will seek to change legislation to allow for land expropriation without compensation…
The Land Expropriation Bill was passed by Parliament in May last year… In its current form, the bill requires the state to exhaust efforts to purchase property on reasonable terms in the open market before being allowed to consider expropriating it.
The ANC however has in recent months hardened its stance on economic transformation, calling for deracialising over-concentrated sectors of the economy and transferring ownership from white people to the black majority among other matters…
Zuma said on Friday South Africa must move beyond “business as usual”.
“We must seek new ways of doing things which will change the economic landscape in our country and ensure that the black majority shares in the wealth. Only then can we have true reconciliation and an expanded economic cake.”
I don’t think this will end well.
And here is another example of the racism of the collectivist left. By treating “whites” as a collective, Zuma will (allegedly) address a general unfairness by being grossly unfair – and racist – to individuals.
Plenty of room for cronyism here, too.
