Ramaphosa's land theft plan: Election votes versus foreign investment
Ramaphosa's land theft plan: Election votes versus foreign investment

While the Western world is watching what the ANC president, Cyril Ramaphosa, is going to do with the land theft program, it becomes more clear that he is working on a plan to approach the election.

Political analysts point out that the president suddenly is no longer targeting the country’s well developed farms. There is apparently one explanation for this, that is the fear that the country will go without food and foreign investors are going to be even less interested in South Africa.

Now, state owned land, and unutilized land is becoming the new target, and it will only become prominent among people’s attention after the election.

The land theft program came about because of two elements that threatened the ANC. Firstly, the Malema radicals with their ‘stolen land’ action that impressed many black voters, and secondly, the ANC had to get something new to retain its voters, a political analyst told The Vryburger.
