THE South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.
Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.
While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land theyre being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million).
Notice is hereby given that a terrain inspection will be held on the farms on April 5, 2018 at 10am in order to conduct an audit of the assets and a handover of the farms keys to the state, a letter sent to the owners earlier this year said.
Akkerland Boerdery obtained an urgent injunction to prevent eviction until a court had ruled on the issue, but the Department of Rural Development and Land Affairs is opposing the application.
What makes the Akkerland case unique is that they apparently were not given the opportunity to first dispute the claim in court, as the law requires, AgriSA union spokeswoman Annelize Crosby told the paper.
These farms are on the goverment's #farmlist that @afriforum exposed. And yet government still denies that the list exists... but it is now clear that government is lying to the public. https://t.co/U40G0U1GIv Kallie Kriel (@kalliekriel) August 19, 2018
It comes as the South African government pushes ahead with plans to amend the countrys constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation.
The seizures are intended to test the ability of the government to take land under existing laws, which the ruling African National Congress has previously stated is allowable if in the public interest.

Don’t start begging for money when there is a famine in the next several years.
Obama is proud that they are seizing white people’s property. He would do that here.
I am a loss for words. The whites saw this coming, yet, to shots fired. It would seem easier to just kill the bastards than to let them kill you and take your land.
Looks like the one now wanting to sell his farm waited too long.
Once the whites leave it will return to the jungle, etc. The indigenous cultures could not make anything of this area and it will return to what they were making of it before the Europeans arrived.
Anyone who thinks this is gonna turn out well for white farmers is in denial. The farmer who wanted 18.7 MM rand and was offered 1.87 would never have even collected that before soldiers or thugs went to his property and killed everyone.
I wonder if Orania will stay intact, or if they’ll need to leave.
Not a penny.
It’s 1913 all over again in South Africa.
We should immediately embargo them again......................
Real question: what happened in 1913 in SA?
Meanwhile liberals have deified the terrorist Mandela, and celebrate his legacy. This is his real legacy: racism and ethnic cleansing.
Stop any and all aid to South Africa.
“We should immediately embargo them again......................”
Sanctions on South Africa did not work, but the policy of Constructive Engagement was effective.
The Natives land Act was passed.
bammy was there not long ago. Guarantee he was there to encourage them to steal land and property from Whites, who he hates intensely.
Salt the earth before you hand over the keys.
Mandela Mass Murderer Transformed into Saint by Media.
The history you will never learn in South African schools today!
