The Cape ticking time bomb

13 November 2012, 09:29
Farmers in the WC have some serious choices to consider in the coming months.. In the past 48 hours we have not just seen protests break out in De Doorns, but also Mooreesburg & Ceres. You don't have to be a political analyst to see that these are nothing more than ANC fueled acts of intimidation against the democratically elected government of the Cape. 

Farmers have allowed this monster to infiltrate the Cape by importing cheap black foreign labour at the expense of our local labour force.. Thousands & thousands of foreign African nationals are scattered throughout the farming areas of the Boland, Swartland & Overberg regions, all of whom would do almost anything to stayt here for good. 
Entire towns & regions have changed demographically - a walk down Caledon or Piketberg Main road today feels more like a walk down Bulawayo or Mbabane..

Now, the very farms that have been part of the farmer's family heritage for generations are at stake! Either the farmers begin a process of laying off their imported cheap labour and start hiring local again, or they will eventually have to lose their farms & homes. This is no idle threat - we have seen it done before and we will seed it done again. After all, what is the fastest way of going the route of Zimbabwe? Just import millions of Zimbabweans.. 

I propose that farmers start a process of firing black foreign labour immediately as these riots are only going to get worse.. These protests are done under the guise of "wage disputes," so if they are no longer employed then they cannot vandalize as "workers.." It will also remove any possible "legality" of their strikes. Lay off a dozen every month until the process is complete instead of doing it all at once. 
Do it not, and the farm you and your ancestors have been toiling and building for hundreds of years WILL end in YOUR lifetime.

Remove the ANC threat from our countryside & the only battle left will be in our cities.
