“Zimbabwe’s Land Reform Was Done Wrongly”: Mantashe

While making a contribution during a discuss on the African National Congress’ adopted policy to expropriate land without compensation in Illovo on Tuesday, Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe said the South African Government will not expropriate land the way Zimbabwe did.

Mantashe said Zimbabwe rushed into land expropriation without compensation and this harmed the country’s food security and economy. Mantashe added that land redistribution without compensation scares white land owners. Said Mantashe:

Later on they attached extension officers to a group of small farmers of the five-hectare households, much later. That was trying to transform what was the land redistribution, almost described as land grabs into a productive programme. We should understand the fears of those who sit on the land when we speak of land expropriation without compensation. It is not a policy to drive whites to the sea.

  1. he seem to be white beard where have you been do you think you can correct zanu mistakes you must have a lot of balls to do that

  2. Aslong as Zimbabweans are masters of their own land now Mr Mantashe, let’s see how well your policies will see through this land redistribution without scaring the white man away.

  3. In South Africa, the White man was there over 100 years before the Blacks showed up as wandering hunters form mid Africa. Perhaps the culture of Zimbabwe might have a similar history.

  4. This fellow will be swallowing his own words within 12months—SA has violent people both black and whites—wait and see—-!
