Zim Farmers union leader warns S.A farmers to share land with blacks or risk losing it all

Peter Steyl, president of Zimbabwe’s Commercial Farmers Union, has urged his counterparts in South Africa to give in a little and share the land with the majority black people, most of whom are landless. Steyl said that this was necessary in order to avoid losing all their land like what happened to most white farmers in Zimbabwe.

In an interview with Reuters, Steyl said:

We were arrogant. We thought they would never take the land because we were too important for the economy.

You never think it will happen until people turn up at your door armed with machetes, off their heads. It gets pretty real.

They are facing the same situation in South Africa. I would tell them: ‘it’s better to give a little bit now than lose everything when things go too far’.
