    Jacob Zuma calls for confiscation of white land without compensation



    President Jacob Zumahas called on parliament to change South Africa’s constitution to allow the expropriation of white owned land without compensation.

    Mr Zuma, 74, who made the remarks in a speech yesterday/FRI morning, said he wanted to establish a “pre-colonial land audit of land use and occupation patterns” before changing the law.

    “We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution,” he said.

    Mr Zuma, who has lurched from one scandal to another since being elected to office in 2009, has adopted a more populist tone since his ruling African National Congress (ANC) party suffered its worst election result last August since the end of apartheid in 1994.

    The party lost the economic hub of Johannesburg, the capital Pretoria and the coastal city of Port Elizabeth to the moderate Democratic Alliance party, which already held the city of Cape Town.

    The ANC is also under pressure from the radical Economic Freedom Fighters, led by Julius Malema.

    Mr Malema has been travelling the country urging black South Africans to take back land from white invaders and "Dutch thugs".

    He told parliament this week that his party wanted to “unite black people in South Africa” to expropriate land without compensation.

    “People of South Africa, where you see a beautiful land, take it, it belongs to you,” he said. Although progress has been made in transferring property to black South Africans, land ownership is believed to be skewed in favour of whites more than 20 years after the end of apartheid.

    The Institute of Race Relations, an independent research body, said that providing a racial breakdown of South Africa’s rural landowners was “almost impossible”.

    “In the first place the state owns some 22 per cent of the land in the country, including land in the former homelands, most of which is occupied by black subsistence farmers who have no title and seem unlikely to get it any time soon,” the group said.

    “This leaves around 78 per cent of land in private hands, but the race of these private owners is not known.”

    Mr Zuma’s comments caused outrage among groups representing Afrikaans speaking farmers on Friday.

    The Boer Afrikaner Volksraad, which claims to have 40,000 members, said its members would take land expropriation without compensation as “a declaration of war”.

    “We are ready to fight back,” said Andries Breytenbach, the group’s chairman. “We need urgent mediation between us and the government. "If this starts, it will turn into a racial war which we want to prevent.”

    Mr Zuma first mentioned the expropriation of land in his opening of Parliament speech last month, but Friday was the first time he called for a change in the law. In his February speech, he controversially called in the military to maintain “law and order” on the streets of Cape Town ahead of expected protests calling for him to step down.

    It was the first time in South Africa’s history, including the heavily militarised apartheid era, that the president has ordered the military to provide security at parliament.

    The only developed country in Africa being dragged back into the dark ages. So who did own the land prior to colonization? Do they have any historic paperwork?

    Old Zuma of course will seize the confiscated land located within his tribal ancestors' territory and claim it for himself and his family.

    South Africa will of course degenerate into chaos as it realigns itself according to tribal affiliation. Cape coloureds, Chinks, Indians and Whitey might as well fuck off now whilst their land may still have some value and they can sell and export the proceeds. The Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Tswana will be getting busy.

    Still, there is a silver lining - all those dubious Tory carpet bagging wankers who launderd their wealth in the Cape, buying up large landed houses with great views, will lose everything as they run back to Brexshitted Blighty.

    Now what country has deadly attacks on illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and the government calls them Xenophobic attacks. Yet the world turns a blind eye.
    Of course Bono ( an Irish singer) the Cape Town adopted luvvie remindes the world that 25 years ago these luvvie Zuma supporters where oppressed.
    Big BBC operative word used for past Blacks lives under the Dutch rule. Oppressed .
    Wow it's just to bad that these poor people that Bono and the rest of the world gave FREEDOM to have now revealed their TRUE colours.
    Today
    They hate other oppressed blacks fleeing Mugabe oppression and kill them . " Because they take our jobs ".
    Of course the BBC luvvies and Bono who holiday in Cape Town will always deny that the people they love are nothing more than savages.

    I cannot get my head around how people don't understand that "you look after your own"
    Tribalism is ingrained into all of us whether it's your football team, your village / town / country
    We have a diverse ethnic country that we should be proud of etc is bullshit
    It's diverse but also secular and different cultures do not mix as easy as the liberal people say it does.
    He's showing his true colours and the people will back him to fuck off Whitey off the land
    Then they will all go against each other's tribes
    We have been fighting over land from the beginning of mankind
    It's a fuckin worry how much of the UK is in foreign hands, the Thais have the right idea I say.
    So is anyone really surprised that SA will fuck up its own country as Rhodesia did
    Africa is a basket case of corruption and stupidity
    But it's all whiteys fault and we have liberal wankers feeding their shame of being white
    I wish the UK could grab it's land back and fuck off the cunts who hate our country but are happy to take anything on offer
    Mandela was a great man but he was a one off
    Look after your own is the natural order of things
    Ask any of the Eton bum boys who run the UK, and their spastic off spring who will run it after them
