Re: Is S. Africa planning to follow Zimbabwe and destroy its economy?

The likes of Malema or cANCer would be barking up the wrong tree if they thought seizing farmland is going to achieve anything positive.

Firstly, the modern trend is urbanisation, the masses (voters) are moving to the cities and are not interested in farming. They want to be involved in businesses.

Secondly, farming in Southern Africa is in most cases very hard work and without substantial support (subsidisation from Govt) unlikely to be a viable long term option.

The effects of Black Economic Empowerment (or whatever they call it now) on business / economy has as much if not more negative potential than the expropriation of land.

Problem is, expropriation of land makes headlines whereas BEE does not.
