It’s just a disaster in the making, one that is repeating the same mistakes seen elsewhere in the past, the rhetoric right now will see piece by piece white farmers relieved of their land who then feel no responsibility to ensure a smooth handover.I sure as fuck wouldn't stay if I were a white farmer. Whole problem is I wouldn't want to hurt the local population by just up and leaving like most are doing. The SA government stance on land occupation and sales to move out white farmers with all the background and knowledge and put in place amateurs to run them has been hurting the local South African people for years now. Government should be helping the new black farmers with massive resources instead of letting them fail, in essence hurting the entire country.
South Africa black-owned farms 'failing'
South African Black farmers Are Selling Government Given Land Back To Original White Owners! BUT WHY?
Why so many new black farmers in SA are bound to fail
Without the skills, background and knowledge to run a farm you're bound to fail, no matter what country you're in. Any lifetime farmer will tell you this.
If it was me and I could see it coming and couldn’t sell it off in time, I’d be tempted to just let the next years harvest fail and bail out.
