South Africa’s Land Reform Is Different From Zimbabwe’s: United States

The US State Department spokesperson┬áHeather Nauert said that South Africa’s land reform policy is different from Zimbabwe’s.

She said this while addressing a press briefing, which was broadcast live on Thursday night. A journalist asked her if she believed the South African policy appeared to be similar to the land reform that had taken place in Zimbabwe. Nauert said the situations between the two countries were quite different. Said Nauert:

It may be easy for some to try to draw a comparison but there are very big differences. In Zimbabwe, we saw the government there squash civil society, shut down the media from doing their jobs in reporting and destroy an independent judiciary and we have not seen that happen in South Africa so I think they are different situations altogether.

She also said expropriation without compensation “would risk sending South Africa down the wrong path”.

  1. we should never be quick to judge and compare time will tell. Knowing south Africans if its not handled properly it can turn Nasty

  2. The two policies will converge because of the effects of the politics involved. White Monopoly Capital is fickle as it swiftly responds to any effect that rocks the boat. As the financial taps run taps run dry, all hell will break loose in SA. From then on, you won’t be able to distinguish the Zim policy from that of SA.

  3. As long it is land reform programme the USA will blame South Africa, sanctions are imminent, mark my words. USA don’t care about the black majority.
