The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the Constitution to make the so-called “land reforms” legal in a vote by the black majority of 183 to 77.
The South African parliament also approved a motion that would set up an ad-hoc committee to recommend procedures on how land expropraition without compensation would actually be carried out.
Earlier, the parliament had approved the constitutional changes that would give the government power to take land from white farmers without paying for it.
But not only land, but any property for that matter, may now be taken from white owners without giving any kind of compensation.
The ANC regime together with the far-left Marxist aprty, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will set up the committee that will present the way forward for land expropriations shortly. EFF MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi argued land grabs must go ahead as she announced: “Your time is up, white people”.
The end of March 2019 will be the deadline set for the committee to present its first report to parliament.
But the IFP Zulu nationalist party MP Mkhuleko Hlengwa, said the plans undermine South Africa’s position as a democratic state.
Hlengwa told local media: “To achieve real and effective land reform is (possible) under the existing Constitution, not your (ANC) populist agenda.
“You should be ashamed of yourself.”
Freedom Front Plus’s Anton Alberts warned that land grabs would lead to political and social upheaval. “When the blood flows it will be on your hands,” Alberts told the ANC members.
The 2018 Global Peace Index by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) shows that South Africa’s reputation as one of the most violent and dangerous places on earth has been getting worse.
The amendment to Section 25 of the South African Constitution, has been suggested as being altered with the phrase: “Zero compensation may be regarded as just and equitable”.
By "settler" they're talking about you, White man.
This new mantra of theirs isn't going to remain isolated in South Africa. It will be chanted worldwide. pic.twitter.com/5P6g8BJwdI
