‘The time for reconciliation is over’: South Africa votes to confiscate white-owned land without compensation

http://www.news.com.au/finance/econo...399d3576c4c0bc

"SOUTH Africa’s parliament has voted in favour of a motion that will begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.

The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the radical Marxist opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters, and passed overwhelmingly by 241 votes to 83 against. The only parties who did not support the motion were the Democratic Alliance, Freedom Front Plus, Cope and the African Christian Democratic Party.

It was amended but supported by the ruling African National Congress and new president Cyril Ramaphosa, who made land expropriation a key pillar of his policy platform after taking over from ousted PM Jacob Zuma earlier this month.

“The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice,” Mr Malema was quoted by News24 as telling parliament. “We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.”..."

And awaaaay we go. Here we come Zimbabwe.........

This may be the declaration of the Third Boer War.

I thought the bush people "owned" South Africa, followed by the Dutch/Germans and then the Bantu peoples moving south.

I predicted this was going to happen when apartheid ended. Africans are incapable of running Africa. The same thing happened in Rhodesia. In time, South Africa will morph into some version of what Rhodesia became.

LOL, I didn't realize I had quoted him there.

I was referring to the situation in general, not the history of British aggression.

"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'."


I can see this will turn this country to crap very quickly. How to turn 1000 acres of productive land to 1 acre of arid land.

Hold strong down there. I worked with and became good friends with some of your countrymen while in Iraq. Extremely professional! I expect they will be in the mix with you if it comes down to it.
