Zimbabwe 2.0: South Africa President Proposes Land "Expropriation Without Compensation"

With every passing day the formerly booming nation of South Africa is getting ever closer to the formerly banana republic of Zimbabwe.

On Wednesday, South Africa's ruling African National Congress proposed at its 5th annual national policy conference that in addition to potentially nationalizing the country's central bank, that land expropriation without compensation should be allowed where it is "necessary and unavoidable," President Jacob Zuma said.

There was a hard push from supporters of President Jacob Zuma for a decision on the redistribution of land without compensation‚ which would necessitate a change to the constitution. But as the Sunday Times reported, according to the ANC’s economic transformation subcommittee head‚ Enoch Godongwana‚ both this proposal and the current system of redistribution with compensation remain on the table for debate by branches. Zuma‚ however‚ hinted in his closing address that there could be legislative changes for expropriation without compensation.

“We agree on the imperative to accelerate land redistribution and land reform. Again we had robust discussions on the modalities to achieve this. We agree that using the fiscus for land redistribution must be accompanied by other measures if we are to achieve the goal at the required pace,” said Zuma in his closing remarks at the six-day conference held in Johannesburg.

“Where it is necessary and unavoidable this might include expropriation without compensation‚” Zuma said.

As discussed several months ago, land will be a key issue ahead of a December conference where a successor to Zuma will be chosen. The two current frontrunners are Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, former African Union chair and Zuma's ex-wife. As a reminder, Dlamini-Zuma has made land redistribution from whites to blacks without compensation one of her main policies.

The policy conference - which has been the top news item in South Africa for the past six days - made a dramatic turn-around and ditched the term "white monopoly capital" as being the main hindrance to the rapid socio-economic transformation of the black majority. Most of the delegates appeared to have given President Jacob Zuma and his supporters the thumbs down on this issue. They have recently used the term "white monopoly capital" in what appears to be an attempt to regain lost support among the masses.

"Nine out of those eleven commissions said the phenomenon of monopoly capital is a global one and it manifests itself differently in various parts of the globe and therefore it would not be correct to characterize ours simply as white monopoly capital," said Joel Netshitenze of the ANC's national executive committee.

Ordinary South Africans are meanwhile keeping close tabs on the policy conference, adamant that the ANC come up with solutions to overcome deep poverty, the uncontrollable rise in unemployment and inequality.

The ANC should once again become "the party that people voted for so many years ago," says Mbali Nyando, lamenting that 22 years into democracy, the living conditions of the people, black people in particular, are "deteriorating rather than improving."

Bheki Khumalo told DW that the ANC should focus on unemployment, a "major issue among the black people." People are unemployed, hungry and they have lost hope, he says, appealing to the ANC to work more closely with entrepreneurs.

And if South Africa decides to follow in Zimbabwe's footsteps, the already hopeless people will be even hungrier and even more unemployed.

Exactly. Get the fuck out of dodge, sell what you can, leave the rest because it will be taken soon anyways (along with your life).Let them turn it into a cesspit and leave, then come back and put a border around the place and shoot anyone trying to get in.Sorry, SA is lost. Has been since they gave out victim cards for apartheid.  This is just the inevitable result.And to think that SA issues one of my favorite coins. Not pretty, but assayed, durable, and cheap.  :)pods

And (as pointed out below), the whites (Dutch) were the FIRST ONES to settle that part of Africa.  It was vacant... That's right.  And then whites import labor, because you know Capital is always ascendant.  The Jew will always push the Capital is over labor meme.   Then white women will project their maternal fantasies onto the negroids.Then it is all over.  The enemy is within the gates.Any future white country:  No Blacks,  No Jews,  Women cannot vote.  Do not import foreign labor to get some gibs in the form of wage arbitrage.

Some negroids have a ridge along the top of their skull, which comes to a rounded point.  This is an archaic feature, evolved to withstand head strikes with clubs and sticks.  It strengthens the skull from tribal attacks.Some groups of "men" have learned to get along with each other, better than other groups.  All humans war, as the human animal is imperfect.  But, evolution is stopped when more "animalistic" humans are imported for wage arbitrage.Here is an image of a saggital cresthttp://justnotsaid.blogspot.com/2015/08/sagittal-crests-part-ii.html

south africa became a wonderful place...solely because of the European immigrants.  that is the reality.  but that will never be embraced.  It is very very sad to me.  It was a wonderful country for many people....and was the best place in all of africa for any 'black' person to live.So....they'll slowly turn.  Then, the Chinese will move in and buy off the leadership like in other African countries.  The VIPs will become billionaires, and the country will descend into total chaos and financial collapse.  8 years out? 4 years? 12?  I don't know....there is still a lot of good people there holding things together in spite of the stupidity of .gov.   To that extent...resembles most of the western world too.

Seeing the bright side, it's an opportunity for civiliced whites around the globe who have enought of suffering the effects of envious stupidity to start thinking about relocating worldwide and seek independence from any shitty soverengty. The shitter the situation the more imperative this will be.Plan your life accordingly so can relocate easily. Offshore wealth is key to prevent the consequences of the shittification of a country.

Who exactly wants the white Afrikaners? Britain only wants refugee "children" from the ME and North Africa. Germany, Canada, Australia and NZ the same. China? Russia? South America? The US? Japan maybe?

Who wants them? Who has offered them a new homeland and escape from genocide?

No suidlanders is not on the straight and narrow.Be weary.http://historyreviewed.com/index.php/2017/07/01/great-suidlander-panic-2... My view remains firmly that the Suidlanders is a South African Govt psy-op and Simon Roche is their most senior agent. In other interviews he tells how he was dealing with the Presidential inaugurations in South Africa and how he was at times the ONLY WHITE MAN in a room full of high ranking blacks.

Appreciate your comment.  I've listened to two interviews with Simon, and, in one, he talks about his experience with the SA gov., but he describes them as semi-retarded more or less.  One of the interviews was with Stefan Molyneux, who is likely much more informed than I - freedomainradio.com.  The only somewhat suspicious characteristic about Simon that I detected is that, in the 400 years of Boer settlement in SA, his appearance suggests one of his vanilla ancestors may have sampled the local chocolate - if you know what I mean.

Perhaps that is something that needs to be addressed with our local Politicians ? I'm sure a bunch of S.A. people have made Never say Die comments on ZH in the past and I would not be the kind of guy to stand on the wall at the Alamo and piss on the likes of those people. But perhaps they need to make a little more noise because if the whole Clusterfuck does go Alamo, It would be on the heads of............?
