Who are the real owners of state-owned land? If it is state owned land, why do the government keep the land in their own hands and create this hate agenda against whites to reform? What funding was paid (TAX) for that farmlands? If tax was used, the owners of all those farmland are the tax payers and not the government? We. as Whites, Afrikaners and Boers also pay tax and for that reason that land do not belong to government at all. Is this then for the government to decide about those state owned farmlands? What about the food security in South Africa?
Why are there already 7.5 million black ownership and they scream “landless propaganda lies and blame whites have all the land”? Best of all, some of the members of parliament of all political parties are sitting in the same chairs for 25 years pleading and running this reform propaganda and black economic empowerment against only whites and white businesses.
Government promised (for 25 years now) its acceleration of the land reform programme will continue to focus on improving access to land for agriculture, economic development and sustainable human settlements. Then government must first started to train the people to be farmers. In some cases there are white farmer mentors on farms and in various cases there were expenditures (finances, equipment, animals, etc) on the landclaims and registered CPA’s.
David Mabuza said the release of government-owned land will be prioritised in a push to meet the objectives of accelerated land reform. Mabuza said this when he participated in the budget vote debate of the office of the Presidency in the National Assembly on Wednesday, 17 July 2019.
Mabuza said: “Poverty and inequality are not only a consequence of historical injustices of the past, but the continuing skewed capital and land ownership patterns that hamper broad-based participation in economic productive activities.
Today, 25 years later, the government bought more than enough farms, 5000+ productive farms to create employment and they always referred to “historical injustices of the past.
What did they do in the meantime, in 25 years, with those 5000+ farms? Who received benefits from those farms? The 5000+ farms is not the only government-owned land, what about that lands that were transferred from the previous government to the current government?
What happened with the thousands of landclaims and registered CPA’s after 1994?
“The acceleration of our land reform programme will continue. The focus will be to improve access to land for agriculture, economic development and sustainable human settlements. It was said that government-owned land will be prioritised to and released.
“Government will streamline and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of post-settlement support to ensure that available resources deliver meaningful outcomes and impact on communities. ”
President has re-instituted the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Land Reform and Agriculture to speed up the implementation of land reform initiatives.
“Instead, broadening access to land and participation by new entrants in the sector will unleash additional productive capacity to enhance agricultural output and create jobs.” Members of Parliament were told that the government’s audit and verification process of land will be redistributed and concluded by the end of April.
“Government in a process of finalising land audit, the verification of these land parcels that are in the hands of government. That process will be concluded by the end of April.”
Mabuza says this information will be made public.
