There are reports that the South-African government is moving to sieze land for the first time. I’m always sceptical about these kind of reports, but this story has been carried on CNN, BBC and IOL. Interestingly though, it is not carried by News24.

If it is true, it is very very worrying. Zimbabwe is the obvious example of how badly forced land distribution can go. I think this is the biggest challenge to a stable & peaceful South Africa. Without some land distribution South-Africa will be in serious trouble, but the whites won’t accept being forced off their land either. It is a very tricky situation.

Something like this can force one to re-evaluate your future.
