Is South Africa planning to follow Zimbabwe and destroy its economy?

White farmers in South Africa will have their property seized under a new law backed by Julius Malema, the revolutionary socialist leader of the country's opposition party."

On Tuesday, the National Assembly of South Africa voted 241-83 in favor of amending the Constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation.

The vote will now be studied by the nation's Constitutional Review Committee which must report back with its recommendation by Aug. 30.

This policy was a disaster for Zimbabwe which in a few years changed from the "bread basket" of Africa to a country that had to import food to survive.

Seems unbelievable they will really do this?

Of course after the farms are gone I assume the Govt. will then turn to seizing hotels, golf courses, rich enclaves??
