South Africa’s ANC regime expropriates first white-owned farms amid ‘land panic’

Will South Africa follow Zimbabwe into hyperinflation and economic collapse as white farmers' land gets confiscated? Both farmers and the country's banks are frightened by the ANC regime's radical plans for 'expropriation without compensation'.

Published: August 20, 2018, 12:59 pm

    South Africa’s ANC regime which is intent on repeating Zimbabwe’s fateful experiment in confiscating all white-owned land, has proceeded to expropriate the first farms under its new policy of “expropriation without compensation” (also known by the acronym “EWC”). In addition, the country’s big-four banks that have at least R80 billion of exposure to commercial farmers who have bonded their properties to the banks for loans, have issued jittery statements to the regime begging for leniency in its drive to exact racial revenge on the country’s farming community.

    Mike Brown, the CEO of Nedbank, South Africa’s fourth biggest bank, stated this week that he was “opposed to changing the country’s constitution” to enable the state to confiscate white-owned land at whim. On behalf of Nedbank, he requested the opportunity to address the country’s parliament on the issue.

    The black CEO of Standard Bank, Sim Tshabalala, said that “we are not panicking yet, but would like more certainty regarding government’s plans”.

    The newly-appointed “minister of rural development and land reform”, Maite Nkoane-Mashabane, provided more “certainty” this week by signing two final orders for expropriation in terms of section 42(e) of the Restitution of Land Rights Act. Her spokesman, Mashile Mokono, head of land expropriation in her office, told the media that Nkoane-Mashabane was “committed to speeding up land reform (i.e. expropriation)”.

    Three weeks ago the ANC regime’s top structures decided at a so-called “lekgotla” (meeting) that it must creat a number of “test cases” as soon as possible in order to obtain legal sanction for EWC from South Africa courts. Currently the country’s constitution provides for the expropriation of property in Section 25 (2) but in sub-section 2(b) it makes it “subject to compensation, the amount of which and the time and manner of payment of which have either been agreed to by those affected or decided or approved by a court”. It is this sub-section that the regime, together with its partner, the far-left radical EFF, wants scrapped in order to enable it to freely confiscate white-owned land and other assets, such as farm machinery and vehicles.

    The two farms to be confiscated appear on the controversial list of 200 farms leaked to the Afrikaner NGO, Afriforum. The leaked list was supposed to contain the names of the first batch of farms to be expropriated by the ANC regime, which hotly denied the existence of such a hit list of farms. However, the fact that these two farms appear on the list, seems to confirm the veracity of the list.

    One of the two farms currently targeted by the regime for expropriation is Akkerland Boerdery (Pty.) Limited, a collection of two hunting farms in the north of the country, situated in the Limpopo province. The owners of Akkerland Boerdery have obtained an urgent interdict in the Land Claims Court prohibiting the state from evicting them from their own farms. The interdict will last until the court determines the legality of the expropriation.

    In the Akkerland instance, the state ignored the current constitution, Zimbabwe-style, and simply went ahead with expropriation without any court procedure, in the absence of an agreement, as Section 25 (2) (b) requires. According to the owners, the two farms are worth R200 million (about $15 million), supported by an independent valuation done in 2011. However, the state only wanted to pay R20,75 million, which includes all the improvements on the land. Now the owners might get nothing, if they become the first victims of “expropriation without compensation” (EWC).

    Mrs. Annelize Crosby, a legal expert with farmers’ union Agri SA, commented: “What makes the Akkerland case unique is that they were apparently not given the opportunity to dispute the claim in a court as the law requires.”

    Nkoate-Mashabane, who was previously minister of foreign affairs with great praise for Cuba and Venezuela, signed the expropriation order for Akkerland only a month after assuming her new office on 28 March this year.

    Another 30 farms could be expropriated in Kwazulu-Natal province, where owners did not want to accept the valuations of the state’s valuer-general. He has estimated their properties at R460 million whereas their own estimations set the value at R760 million.

    Many economists see the economic impact of land expropriation on South Africa as severe. In an attempt to placate its critics, the ANC regime announced yesterday that it would meet with Agri SA tomorrow (Tuesday 21 August) to discuss “the economic impact of the ANC plan (of expropriation without compensation)”. Agri SA will be represented by Mr. Dan Kriek while the ANC is sending its deputy president, David Mabuza.

    Not only farmers, but also the banking sector is worried that the quasi-communist confiscation of farms could lead to a Zimbabwe-style economic crisis in South Africa.

    Mr. Pierre Venter, a spokesman for the Banking Association of South Africa (BASA), representing the major banks of the country, said: “Many banking crises world-wide started when property values started to decline, which had an impact on the trust in markets.”

    As the news of expropriation without compensation spread internationally, the South African rand has already lost 10 percent of its value since the end of July.

      If the SA banks have an exposure of R80 billion on farm mortgages then that’s a pittance in USD or EUR terms – and increasingly so with the quickly sliding Rand. So if the World Bank or others of their ilk wanted to snap up key SA assets for what would be a rounding error for them then this is a golden opportunity.

      What about a modern day deliverance , from an impending genocide , upon The Poor Whites , in the south african poverty camps , whom are not allowed , or whom cannot evacuate – ( for whatever reason ) ? If you know real history , then you understand , it is they – The White Destitute , who are The Real Boers . On the other hand ; the metro elite & propertied farmers – are the jew / dutch / english / afrikaners , that have assumed the identity from , and have always oppressed , The True Germanic Boers . Yes Sir , there is a way out for them – The Despised Poor , but it’s not the “ rapture “ .

      The South African Boers are mostly a swiss / germanic peoples – with some admixture from french , dutch and english . They were the Ana – Baptist refugees , from The European Continental Religious and Secular Wars , of the 16th and 17th and 18th centuries . They were caught in between , and maltreated & persecuted , by both the protestant / reform & catholic churches , and also abused , by those associated nation state civil governments . When in Germany and Denmark , they were given the derogatory appellation of “ Boors “ , because they were considered low class , poor and uncouth . ( In America , Benjamin Franklin disparagingly referred to their near kindred , [ The Pennsylvania Dutch German “ Christian Brethren “ ] , as “ Palatine Boors “ . It was for the same reasons , that the Scotch-Irish were named : Redneck , Hillbilly , Country Good Old Boy , Hayseed , Rube , Yokel , Bumpkin , Rustic , Rural , Clodhopper & Farmer – and we embrace those names . ) The Boors took the opportunity to escape from , the hostile to them – Europe , by removing to South Africa ( also to North America and other places ) , under the auspices of , The Dutch East India Company ( VOC ) . Their prime motive was , The True Christian Liberty of Conscience , and not economic adventurism . These real religious and political refugees , had a whole different outlook and mindset , from the other opportunistic emigrants , and they became known as , The Pious Border Farmers and Trekking Boers ; Migrants of The Expanding Settlement Frontiers . — See the article : ( The Afrikaner Domination of the Boers : How it was Constructed ) , by David Christie , dated : 11 April 2014 , AFRIKAANSENUUS .

      Through all the vicissitudes and attacks , that they have suffered – from traitors & open & secret enemies , they have lost their identity , and are to a large degree alienated , from the true knowledge of , and right relationship with , THE LORD JESUS CHRIST – THE SAVIOR AND REDEEMER . Although diminished , they are still with “ dear ” standing – to GOD , and He will call them back , and will gather them firmly , and bless them abundantly , and rescue them from the advancing evil extermination . Could this explanation and assertion be correct ?

      The White Man is the race of Abraham , Isaac , and Jacob . ( The True Hebrews : actual and factual , by evidence and proof . ) They are found in THE HOLY BIBLE . Because of wickedness and rebellion and revolution , GOD broke most of them off and away , from The Ancient Kingdom of The House of Israel . JEHOVAH did this , by allowing them to be conquered and taken as slaves , by pagans and heathen – ( Within their history , The Caucasians also became polytheistic hedonists ) . Later , THE LORD GOD opened several doors of their captivity , and let them escape , and made them move north & west , in many pushes and waves . These Lost Ten Tribes forfeited their identity , by their unbelief & disobedience , through the generations and centuries of ; wars and raids and migrations and wanderings and explorations . These forgotten Clans , became The Gentile ( White ) European Nations , spreading across the geocentric globe earth . As a racial group , they are known as The Anglo / Saxons . And , although they do not know it , the providence of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST , has marked them with a special token-sign , pointing to their future minority recovery , and full reinstatement . Anglo / Saxons : ( Anglo = GOD’S Servant , Saint or Angel , GOD’S Son ) / ( Saxons = The Son’s of Isaac , The Isaac’s Sons , The Sac’s Sons = The Saxons ) -> ( The Son’s of Jacob , by being The Grandson’s of Isaac , are The Anglo / Saxons . ) -> ( The English Group + The German Group = The United Birthright and Scepter ) . The day is approaching , when a remnant of The Son’s of Jacob ( The Grandson’s of Isaac = The Anglos & The Saxons ) will return , and be converted and gathered together and joined , by THE GIFT AND POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST . Never again brother against brother wars for them . ( The reunion will be – The Grand Union of Jacob , presaged by The Union Jack Ensign ) . This Small Portion ( spread over the sphere earth ) , being The Election , and belonging to JESUS MESSIAH , will be delivered by a mighty & miraculous , intervention & intercession . Their corporeal rescue , is the deliverance from the modern day absolute bondage & captivity , by tyranny of the archfiend anti-christ ascendency , that is now being spearheaded by marauding “ flying monkeys “ , and a prospective white genocide in South Africa . The Authentic Reclamation , will be practically unforeseen and unexpected , by everyone else who does not veritably know , or who are not much interested in , THE REAL JESUS . ( The event will only become widely known , for both the fact and mis-explanation , in the aftermath . ) All of mankind ( both kindred & foreigner / stranger ) , can by faith ( if they will ) repent and reform and separate , to become GOD’S Spiritually Adopted Sons or Daughters ( Pilgrims ) ; those that are Born Again , they who love JESUS , them that are in His Grace – Mercy – Favor – Blessings Full On . Then we are His Eligible and His Qualified and His Chosen , to receive this tremendous beneficial , while living on earth . It will be greater than The Exodus Out of Egypt , that was in the times of old , while under the leadership of Moses . This is the mortal ( while in the flesh ) and only earthly escape , out of The Great Temptation and The Great Tribulation ( test & trial ) , that is coming as GOD’S anger and judgement , upon the whole world . Let the loud – clear – pure – ringing , of The Real and True Christian Liberty Bell , peal throughout all THE LORD’S SANCTUARIES . It is the beginning of GOD’S PARADISIACAL KINGDOM COME TO EARTH ; in His multifold and distinct , provided and guarded , companies and camps – trekking and transiting , to His refuges and retreats . Who will survive and who will demise ? Choose the only genuine and best hope , or decide for the hard way , of soul danger and torment and martyrdom ( by the forced mark of the beast ) . Watch and Pray . There is a sign to be given , for the moment of reckoning and decision , to catch the only once given , small window of opportunity . After being converted , search THE HOLY BIBLE and find the sign , to obey the command of THE SAVIOR AND REDEEMER – JESUS CHRIST . Do not be left behind , to weep in regret . In the meantime , we need to resist lawfully – with all our abilities , the advancements of evil , while awaiting expectant and hopeful – The Days of Refreshment .

      —- Self Defense is an obligation to GOD , ( 1 Timothy 5 : 8 ) , THB , kjv . Beware of imposters & deceivers & secret enemies ( Revelation 3 : 8 – 12 ) . The leading adversaries against THE LORD JESUS CHRIST , know “ much “ about The Great Escape . Their blood vendetta & hatred , prompt them to the “ dark arts “ , and the exhaustive “ expert “ study , of the stolen Sacred Scripture – THE HOLY BIBLE , ( even though it pertains to them – only for their condemnation ) . They are blinded to think , that they can anticipate and thwart , The Archangel Michael ( Daniel 12 : 1 ) and “ The Holy Companions “ – ( Angels , Captains , Disciples ) . Little do they really understand . They are only stumps & rocks in the field , of GOD’S great world drama , wherein He works to save ( plant and husband and harvest ) the souls of men and women , one at a time . The wheat / flour mill of THE LORD , grinds slowly but grinds very fine . No one yet knows , what we shall be made to become , but we trust it will be wonderful . Everyone will receive their fair chance , and just opportunity , even though it may not seem so , at the moment . For The Righteous – during the 1000 year millennium ; all wounds will be healed , and all injustices will be made right , and all babies that were aborted – will have an upbringing by loving parents . Come out of wickedness . Separate from uncleanliness . Look forward to The Marvelous Work and Wonder , of GOD’S Deliverance , and the impending presence of JESUS – THE GOOD SHEPHERD , coming in the sky , at the end of the tribulation , and then is the inauguration , of the new era .
