Ronald Lamola, deputy president of the ANC Youth League, in a speech at the Durban University of Technology called for the expropriation of white land without compensation. 

“We need an act as forceful as war to bring it back to the Africans,” Lamola said. 

(Ronald Lamola, current president of the ANC youth league, continues to outshine his predecessor by stepping up hate speech against Afrikaners. Lamola claimed the land reform policy needed a forceful act of war and told his followers that it was an illusion to believe whites would hand over the land peacefully. Afriform, a South African civil-rights organization, has filed a complaint against Lamola for the use of hate speech.)


It was a few hours after Lamola called for war that a 77-year-old farmer was murdered in Limpopo province. An American tourist found the deceased farmer and his critically injured wife.
The government denies genocidal intentions although the South African Communist Party remains more open about the intent to drive whites out of the country. According to their report, whites are unwelcome settler colonialists with no role in the future.
■ The truth is that far from protecting us, the Bill sways dangerously in the favour of Government. Basically, it means that any member of state can take what they want, when they want it, as long as it sits in the camps of ‘for public purposes’ or ‘in public interest’ – as defined by.. well, the government.
