The South African parliament voted a staggering 65.5% to 34.5% to seize white-owned land without compensation. They call it expropriation without compensation.
The move was supported by the ANC, EFF, Agang SA, National Freedom Party, United Democratic Movement, African People’s Convention, and the Inkatha Freedom Party. The move was opposed by the Democratic Alliance, African Christian Democratic Party, Congress of the People, and Freedom Front Plus.
The International media is publishing fake claims that blacks own between 5-9% of agricultural land in South Africa. This is total nonsense. Black ownership of agricultural land has surged since 1994. Some of it was given to blacks by the South African government. However, the lion share was purchased by black people on their own. Since 1994, blacks have purchased 5 million hectares of agricultural land. They have purchased 1.7 million hectares of land for other purposes. In the same time period the South African government only “redistributed” 2.1 million hectares of agricultural land to blacks.
Black ownership of agricultural land is the highest in Kwa-Zulu-Natal, with over 70% of agricultural land owned by blacks.
The South African government still owns over 17 million hectares of land or about 15% of the total country. A lot of this is arable land that can be used for farming.
The actual purpose of the vote was to begin the process of amending the South African constitution to make it legal to seize white-owned land without compensation. The actual process of amending the constitution could begin in August of this year. The new South African president claimed that “no one will lose their home,” and “agricultural output will increase.” That scenario is about as likely as the creation of a real-life Wakanda.
It is unclear when actual land confiscations would occur. However, it is widely believed that many blacks will take matters into their own hands. As the government gets closer to actually confiscating blacks, poor blacks will fear they will not get a slice. So large numbers will simply squat on white-owned land and claim it as their own. This scenario led to the absolute total destruction of Zimbabwe’s thriving white-dominated farming industry.
The writing is on the wall. South Africa has been going downhill for the past twenty years. Now it is about to fall off of a clip. No one can predict exactly what will happen, but it is safe to say that things will be very bad. Video of the South African parliament voting to confiscate white-owned land is like something out of a horror movie about a dystopian future.
