[Ed. – These forcible seizures are being done under the guise of “testing” a land-expropriation principle articulated by the ruling African National Congress.]

THE South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.

Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.

While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land — they’re being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million). …

It comes as the South African government pushes ahead with plans to amend the country’s constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation. …

Earlier this month, City Press reported the government had drawn up a list of 139 farms it planned to seize “to test out” section 25 of the constitution.
