Zimbabwe 2.0: South Africa's President Vows To Redistribute White-Owned Land And Businesses

Tyler Durden's picture

In a stark flashback to the events that led to Zimbabwe's terminal collapse into banana republic status, as well as unleashing hyperinflation and economic devastation, on Thursday South African President Jacob Zuma pledged to break up white ownership of business and land to reduce inequality, in a State of the Nation address which as the WSJ reports was disrupted by a fistfight, walkouts and a release of pepper spray in the parliamentary chamber. It appears South Africa is not fond of implementing "Rule 19."

Scenes of verbal and physical clashes inside the parliament, some 27 years to the day after Nelson Mandela was released from prison, as well as Zuma's contentious speech, highlight the precarious future course facing Africa’s most developed economy.

As the WSJ reports, on Thursday, lawmakers from the far-left Economic Freedom Fighters "shouted over an initial attempt by Mr. Zuma to start his speech, after complaining about what they said was a threatening increase of security inside and outside Parliament. Previously the president had for the first time deployed several hundred troops to help lock down Cape Town’s parliamentary precinct in anticipation of potential clashes between ANC and opposition supporters."

Things then quickly got out of control:

“You’re a constitutional delinquent,” EFF lawmaker Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said of Mr. Zuma, referring to a court finding last year that the president had violated the constitution when he refused to pay back public money that an official report found was used for unnecessary upgrades to his private home. Mr. Zuma has since paid back some of the funds. When EFF lawmakers, dressed in their customary red workers’ overalls and maids’ uniforms, refused to quiet down or leave the chamber, they began fighting with parliamentary orderlies. Some lawmakers used their red hard hats to hit the orderlies, while other legislators were dragged out of the chamber.

 

Soon after, South Africa’s other main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, walked out in protest over the increase in security. ANC lawmakers shouted after Mmusi Maimane, the DA’s first black leader, as he led his party’s MPs out of the chamber, calling him a racist and sellout. Around the same time, several DA members in the visitors’ gallery
reported that tear gas had been released into the gallery, which quickly
emptied.

According to the chairwoman of South Africa’s upper house, Thandi Modise, an initial investigation showed that the substance released was pepper spray and called the incident a “breach of security” that shouldn’t have happened. She didn’t say who was behind the incident.

Meanwhile, Zuma didn’t acknowledge the disruptions when he returned to the podium to continue his speech. Instead, he focused on the one issue which may soon plague South Africa for years to come: the stark economic divide between black and white South Africans, one of the issues that the EFF has seized on in recent years.

To appease the rising populist anger, and taking a page out of developed economies around the globe, Zuma then said that “today we are starting a new chapter of radical socioeconomic transformation., The president added that 22 years after the end of apartheid “white households earn at least five times more than black households.”

President Zuma’s focus on redistribution comes as his African National Congress party prepares to elect a new leader to succeed him in December and as he finds himself under growing pressure over corruption allegations. He also said that he planned to send back to Parliament a bill that will make it easier for authorities to redistribute land taken away from blacks during colonization, although white landowners will still receive market prices for any seized land.

Where have we seen this kind of land "redistribution" not too long ago? Oh yes, Zimbabwe.

It took Zimbabwe 15 years to admit its mistakes, and invite white farmers back. It now appears that South Africa will have to learn from the mistakes of its northern naighbor in due course.

This has been coming for a long time. And for Zuma, fighting for his political life, such populist Libtard policies (just like was the case in Zimbabwe) are a no-brainer. It's only fair. Meanwhile Zuma, that socialist champion of the (impoverished) people, parties on in his private Presidential Boeing 747-800.

Very many South Africans saw this coming a long time ago and are already in Australia, UK, Canada etc. using historical family ties to obtain Citizenship.

Australia gained a lot of excellent people in this recent period. My vet, and our local doctor are both fantastic, and South African. The whites that remain are armed to the teeth and will die fighting.

"The whites that remain are armed to the teeth and will die fighting."

First of all, they are not armed to the teeth because SA has extreme gun laws, especially for whites.  Second of all, as we saw in Syria,even if the whites are able to organize at all in the face of CIA and other mind control programs, the CIA will flood the government with whatever weapons are needed to complete the white genocide.

Not sure what you mean. I have relatives in SA that will never leave, and they own anything you could imagine in the way of firearms. Last time I was there (admittedly almost 10 years ago) I saw people open carrying in the bank in Joberg.

South Africa is a country the US should look to as an example of what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum completely.  They will end up full Zimbabwe as they continue along the path to ruin. God help the Afrikaners, as when they are eliminated there will be nothing left and things will revert back to a tribal state, much as it is going on now. I look for the Globalists to come in and "bail" them out, turning them into debt slaves and ending up owning pretty much everything. As usual in the end, nothing will change except that the new owners have even less interest in your plight than before.

At least the mines won’t be worth squat as the aboriginals do not have the requisite skills to run them efficiently.

I wonder if I can get one of these cheap from a white refugee...

I know a fair number of expat South Africans; when they go back to SA to visit family/friends, they always travel on non-South African passports, and strictly as "visiting tourists".

As one of them explained, "you can never be sure what the government will do".

It is a zoo. This uncivilized animals are totally incapable of accomplishing anything useful.

I am sorry for these white people who don't see that they have no future. I would say even more that they are in mortal danger hoping for a miracle to save them.

South African leaders with a chip on the shoulder will destroy what is left of the country.

They simply do not have the cultural values or business savvy for building, managing, and growing commerce.

Gibsmedat does not count.

Even if they do redistribute the land, the new owners are too stupid to know the business of buying, selling, accounting, balancing, distribution, etc.

Any white owner whose land or property is confiscated should simply take what ever assets he can and leave. 

There is no way whites will win that fight.

Taking their skills to another country to start a new life is the only option.

That place will descend into a bloodfest with all the new unskilled owners at each other's throats in a short time.

They will bungle the simplest grocery store and destroy it beyond repair.

Then they will look for a scapegoat to avoid taking any responsibility.

They have the mentality of adolescents who think they know how the world works when in fact they have no grasp of reality.

They will blame their own stupidity and business ineptitude on whatever white person happens to be standing in the vicinity and will commit whatever crime is convenient.

Rayciss will not count in that case either. 

Attacking whites for whatever reason is never rayciss.

sure you got reason to object to aspects of colonialism. But are you smart enough to keep the aspects of it that acually improve your people's lives?

Chinese are asians, right? Not White.

Last continent to be harvested.

Twee Surgeon's picture

Asia is a Continent. Chinese people are from Asia. Native Americans and Indians from the real India (Hidustaan) are Asians.

White people originate from Asia also, there are Numerous ancient texts that describe their ancient migrations.

The Nation we call Iran today was formerly known as Persia until it was re-named Iran in the 1930's by the Nazis and their Persian Allies.

Iran means Aryan...as in, never tell an Iranian he is an Arab. An Iranian is not an Arab. It is complicated, but it is true. (And easily re-searchable.)

Buddah was a Prince of a tribe called the Arians native to Northern India, they went North. Hitler did not make this shit up. It is recorded history.

(That they have not destroyed yet.) And can't.

Mr Paint Job Theory,

Open your eyes to what is blatantly obvious to anyone who is honest w/ himself.   The differances are much deeper than the color of skin.

You must be one of those guys who knows one black guy from grad school and that's it.  Get out there and be around the common negro day in and day out and get an appreciation for his violence, lack of thrift, loudness, constantly crude language, lack of future time orientation, lazyness, arrogance, lack of smarts and utter dysfunction.  Did I mention loudness?

Why is EVERY black-run country & city a dangerous shithole?  Why do they ruin/destroy every neighborhood they integrate?  

These dipshits didn't even have the wheel, a word for any number larger than 3, or a written language until whitey showed up.  

Other races each have their plusses and have contributed in a positive way to humanity.  The African is a lost cause -constantly needing the white man's help just to stay alive.  Sadly, they are a race made obsolete by mechanized farm machinery.
