EFF must protect and give more land to farmers like ZZ2

18 March 2014, 12:01

EFF will protect farmers like ZZ2, which respect and devoted to its employees.

Let me highlight you on why EFF must protect keep stability to ZZ2.

Bertie van Zyl was born on 16 November 1932, the second surviving son of Flip and Lenie van Zyl on the farm Boekenhoutbult in the Mooketsi valley of the Limpopo Province.

Tenacity, an eye for a business opportunity, a knack for communicating with labourers in their own language and an unwavering self-belief stood Bertie in good stead over the years. At the time of his death in 2005, he had built up ZZ2 to a multi-million Rand farming conglomerate and had made his mark in public life – both in the agricultural sector and on provincial and national level.  
We deliver high quality primary agricultural products and services. Our practices optimise resources, are based on Natuurboerdery (natural farming principles) and are ethical, environmentally friendly and sustainable. We serve clients who look for value. Bertie said.

The workforce is made up of a combination of seasonal and full time employees who are all employed in full compliance with all the relevant labour legislation

ZZ2 contributes to the funding of the primary school on its premises in Mooketsi and works in close co-operation with the Department of Education.  ZZ2 finances and manages 13 crèches for the children of employees where educational programmes are run and balanced meals are provided.

There are two clinics on the farms with qualified nursing personnel and a doctor visits once a week. Mobile clinics visit the outlying farms. ZZ2 has two of its own ambulances to transport patients. A number of educational programmes are run to inform employees’ about health-related matters. Examples include cholera and HIV programmes. All of this takes place while working closely with the Department of Health.
ZZ2, together with the Makgato Community Property Association, are partners in the Munnik Conservancy.
ZZ2 and the PHEEA Communal Property Association consisting of some 450 families are involved in the Diphiring Conservancy.

Re ya leboga legatong la batho ka moka ba ZZ2.  In pure Sepedi, from Bertie.

If you are a white South African and can’t write or read one African official language, consider yourself as a stupid arrogant person who don’t belong to South Africa. EFF don’t need person like you in South Africa. EFF will make peace rain by fire by force. I say to you hak and leave us in peace for the love of the nation.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
