South African parliament votes to SEIZE white-owned land

Daily Mail

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.’

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’.

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

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

‘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’.

The deputy chief executive of civil rights group Afriforum said the motion was a violation of agreements made at the end of apartheid.

‘This motion is based on a distorted image of the past,’ Ernst Roets said.

‘The term “expropriation without compensation” is a form of semantic fraud. It is nothing more than racist theft.’

The ANC is increasingly under pressure to speed up land redistribution to help shore up its support among poorer black voters ahead of the election next year.

Parliament ordered its constitutional committee to report back on the issue by August 30.

Botched and often violent redistribution of land in neighbouring Zimbabwe under ex-leader Robert Mugabe left many farms in ruins, and the drop in production triggered an economic crisis that still haunts the country.

White farmers control 73 percent of arable land compared with 85 percent when apartheid ended in 1994, according to a recent study.

‘The time for reconciliation is over; now is the time for justice,’ EFF leader Julius Malema told parliament.

‘It is about our dignity. We do not seek revenge… all that our people ever wanted is their land to which their dignity is rooted and founded.’

  1. Hal, I was just about to post this and here it is! All I could think of when I read it was, “It CAN happen here!! It CAN happen here.”

    Oh, they are pushin’ us. The dam can’t hold much longer.


    1. ps: And the audacity of this: “Not calling for the slaughter of white people, at least for now.”


      No peep out of the left on this. The great “humanitarians” say so much when they remain silent.


  2. Hey… what the hell…??

    Now who do they x pect to farm the land…?

    Black people. ..????

    All I gotta say is…

    You white African niggers need to stay down there.

    We don’t have any room for you here.

    We’re still here trying to build a wall.

    And get rid of all theze fkng Mexicans.

  3. “….‘We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.’….”

    When exactly was this land “stolen”, and by whom? The wetbacks are making the same claim about this country.

    The last time Africans slaughtered white farmers they were crying about starvation the following year.

    Because they’re so few in number, white people should sell their land for whatever they can get for it, and get out. Leave the Africans to their own devices, and see how they fare. Within a year they’ll be screaming “send us aid money because we’re starving”.

  4. Were’nt their cities running out of water…..very recently? Make South Africa a S***hole again! Who the hell will give them capital to rebuild? Where is the anti-white apartaid boycott? Hmmmmm. No one will even give Puerto Rico infrastructure repair money because the creditors will get nothing back. That only about $100 million when the last contractor quit because they weren’t getting paid. Even Gates and Bezos won’t give! Worst scenario that the ideology of taking back from the oppression of a generation earlier comes to the USA.

  5. “Mr Malema said the time for ‘reconciliation is over’. ‘Now is the time for justice,’ News24 reported.”

    No, sounds more like you just declared a race war, commie nigger.

    Hope you get slaughtered for your trouble, scumbag.
