As South African President Ramaphosa's 'land reform' plans begin to confiscate white farmer-owned lands with no compensation, the rhetoric on both sides of the policy are beginning to signal little hope of avoiding direct inter-racial conflict, or another civil war.
“This is no land grab. Nor is it an assault on the private ownership of property... Land reform in South Africa is amoral, social and economic imperative.
“By bringing more land into productive use, by giving more South Africans assets and opportunities, the country is creating conditions for greater, more inclusive and more meaningful growth”
But a number of black South Africans appear to see things a little differently to their president: “Let us kill the white man, the white man must die”
