My heart’s been broken. I just discovered I might no longer have the opportunity to buy my dream home in South Africa.
Our EKP SA correspondent informs us that “Legislation banning foreigners from owning land in South Africa will be passed by SA Parliament within 18 months.” Seems the ANC are “fast- tracking the law” in order to appease ANC supporters jumping on Julius Malema’s political bandwagon.
While every last sensible person of European, Chinese, Indian, mulatto and canine origin (Zulu don’t like dogs either) is trying their best to flea South Africa, the ANC are doing their utmost to see that idiots still foolish enough to consider buying private property in South Africa, will be forbidden from doing so. This destructive law will in essence all but kill what little private Western (non-corporate) interest remains in SA.
Marxism (Black Power), appears to mean, its better to wreck the nation and starve the masses, than allow whites to own or invest in property!
Instead of allowing decent law abiding foreigners the ability to purchase property, the ideologues in the ANC would rather see property values decimated, whites flea so Zulu tribals can hold Muti murder rituals in emptied out swimming pools, and the country in ruin –just as Nadine Gordimer and Joe Slovo intended.
While the EEF’s Julius Malema has not formally committed to expropriating properties, it seems a given from what he tells his supporters, he will ensure that anyone less black than a chunk of coal, can’t retain their property, if and WHEN he comes to power.
The madness of this regime is astounding.
Sadly, British property television shows and developers up and down the country are still promoting SA as a place to invest. They are quite irresponsibly ignoring the fact that investment in the country now carries a very serious risk, and according to a new article in the London Times, the English are quite remarkably still buying holiday homes in SA. My only hope is that some of the one million Poles and Romanians mooching off us in England, will fall for the ads, and use some of the benefits they’ve stolen from us, to buy property in SA. I heard Soweto looks a lot like Bucharest, and has nearly as much drug addiction prostitution.
And before you think that was mean of me, remember that until some of the 1 million plus Eastern bloc people who have invaded our shores leave, our Home Office can NOT change it’s policy towards Commonwealth nations. I was specifically told as much when I communicated with my local ULIP representative last week. I will be discussing that conversation on the radio today and in an article the EKP will post later in the week.
In closing, I urge ANY westerner interested in buying a property in South Africa, not to! They will boil your children, rape your wife and gut your dog as they did the Portuguese/South American Viana family 2 short years ago! If you do buy property you WILL lose it in the long run. In my opinion, South Africa will be offering the land back to whites, Indians and the stray dogs they deport, as Mugabe is now doing in Rhodesia, inside 5 years. Hunger will do that to ya…..
Original Story our EKP SA correspondent sent to us
“A new property law that bans foreigners from owning land in South Africa will be fast-tracked through parliament before the end of the current administration, the government confirmed this week. Under the new rules, foreign nationals will be allowed to lease South African land for a minimum of 30 years instead, rural development and land reform minister Gugile Nkwinti told a media briefing in Cape Town on Wednesday.
However, the newly appointed minister added that the ruling African National Congress party did not support the approach of expropriating property currently owned by foreigners, which government estimates to be about 7 per cent of all South Africa’s land.
“It is possible that we could experience difficulties making the law retrospective on this question,” Mr Nkwinti said, adding that the ANC lacked the appetite to change the constitution, which would be required before expropriation could take place.
The Regulations of Land Holdings Bill is one of a number of land reform bills that President Jacob Zuma’s government is trying to sign into law before the end of his term in office in 2019. The new legislation will be brought before the house of assembly in about November, according to Mr Nkwinti.
However, the cut-off point for foreigners to buy property would likely only come towards the end of the current administration because a land audit to ascertain the race, gender and nationality of all owners had to be completed first.
Mr Nkwinti said the government would use the current legal definitions of the Department of Home Affairs to determine who was a foreigner. “We don’t have to reinvent the wheel, we will just use the definition of what a foreign national is in the country,” he said.
The legislation is part of the government’s new efforts to tackle the thorny issue of land reform in South Africa and speed up the process of righting the land-related wrongs imposed by apartheid as well as colonialism.
Following the introduction of the 1913 Land Act, black South Africans were not allowed to own land and forced removals of indigenous people from their tribal lands by European settlers took place from as far back as the 1700s. As a result it is estimated that black South Africans, who make up 67 per cent of the population, only own about 7 per cent of the land.
In recent times, a weakened rand, which has devalued by about 45 per cent since mid-2010, and South Africa’s relatively stable environment, has led to a surge in foreign buyers picking up some of the country’s most sought-after properties.
The set of new laws is also likely a bid to undermine the new left-wing government critics that had emerged recently, such as the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) led by former ANC youth league leader Julius Malema, which won just over 6 per cent of vote in national elections this year.
The EFF has called for expropriation of land without compensation. Recently it offered to give the ANC the parliamentary support it needs to reach the two-thirds majority required to change the constitution in this regard.”
