Skip to comments.SAfrica: Black farmers sell farms back to whites

JOHANNESBURG -- South Africa's minister of land reform says black farmers have resold nearly 30 percent of the white farmland bought for them by the government - often back to the previous white owners. Minister Gugile Nkwinti announced the startling indicator of failure at Wednesday's launch of a long-delayed government policy paper to revitalize plans to more equitably distribute agricultural land, redressing historical wrongs. Seventeen years after white minority rule ended, the vast majority of agricultural land remains in the hands of some 40,000 white commercial farmers. Nkwinti said the government had bought 7 percent of the country's commercial farmland since 1994. He said black farmers had resold about 2 percent. Many black farmers have failed for lack of support.

No government redistribution in the interest of “fairness” is ever fair. Tyranny is tyranny.
Can’t find the article at the link.
Yep, the leftists consider this a failure.... although food production will go up
White men may not be able to jump,but they can grow food.
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill
I would not buy it back, they will only take it away again once it is productive.
Offered a job but wanted a paycheck.....
So kool.. now the blacks can do it all over again...
These whites need to have their heads examined..
UNLESS they have made share croppers of blacks..
Like the northern carpet-baggers did in the american south after the Civil War...
Does this mean they plan on confiscating it again?
“I would not buy it back, they will only take it away again once it is productive.”
It’s what the arabs did with Israel; it used to be complete arid nothing land.
Sell ‘em back their own farms.
Wait until they get them producive again, then seize
What’s not to love about alternating between capitalism AND marxism?
You know....I watched that damned BSG crap for three or four years....an underlying theme throughout at least the last 1/3 was “it has happened before; it will happen again”....history repeats itself endlessly when nothing is learned from the experience...the white farmers who bought this land back are effing fools.
Its a nice scam. ANC cronies, who have no intention of farming, apply to Gov’t to buy land for them. Land is then re-sold, netting pure profit.
Fannie/Freddie, Foodstamps, S. African land purchases - when the Gov’t is spending money on “social problems” a large percentage of that money will be scammed.
That’s a fact, Jack !
Don't forget swimming, whites are good at that too!
Tosh.0 comedy show had a guest comment about that point of reverse racism ; "White men can't Jump" , what if a movie title was made "Black men can't Swim:
Unlike Rhodesia/Zimbabwe the South African government bought the land from white farmers. I can’t speak to how good the deals were.
One of the worst things you could do for me is give me a farm or an auto shop. I am not skilled in either pursuit and much of what happens on a farm causes me an allergic reaction. I would reduce the value of any such property and business with my tenure.
My thoughts, exactly.
Wait 'til they're rebuilt and productive; then threaten and beat the farmers, rape or threaten to rape their wives and daughters, and take over the farms for the veterans.
Being a capitalist sheep, waiting to get sheared, LOL.
