I am just sick of it, the mentality of some of the youth wanting things handed over to them but some will not do an honest day’s work. Call me ignoramus or retarded, but I do not care how the boere got the land it is history! Yes I do not support Malema and his land grab fantasies, he has no idea what is the meaning of food security. He owned a farm how much did he contribute towards economic growth with his farming activities better how many mouths did he feed from it? If there is someone who knows please tell me.
If you want land go buy it, then you can waste your own money sitting on land you do not have a clue where to begin to make it productive. There are plots and farms for sale in the classifieds.
Most of those who blindly support this land redistribution (especially farm lands) have not thought about the impact it will have on the economy. If you want an example look next door, Zimbabwe.
Successful farmers have been doing it for generations and they have been making a positive contribution towards SA’s economy. Now people are advocating that farms be given to someone who has no record of being a successful backyard farmer, or maybe there is a criteria to determine those who will be most qualified to keep the country and some of its neighbours fed?
Wake up, the results of this will not be land returned to “rightful” owners, it will be a collapsed economy.
