Do your homework

2017-03-28 06:02

POPULIST propagandists like Sihle Zikala from the ANC really do need to do their homework before they make their pronouncements about land.

They need to be aware of the research which shows that only 17% of KwaZulu-Natal is in the hands of commercial farmers of all races who feed us.

They need to accept that commercial farming now requires considerable expertise, finances and good will from conscientious men and women who have a vision for feeding the nation, and who need to feel secure in their task if they are to keep at it and meet the needs of our rapidly growing population.

The ANC really must stop its short-term politicking and put the needs of the nation before those of the party.
