Mashatile Reveals ANC Will Not Take White Farmers’ Land.

Paul Matshile, ANC treasurer general, has cleared up some pressing questions regarding the amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution. A bill was passed by Parliament just a few months ago to allow for this amendment, which will be a giant step towards legalizing land expropriation without proper compensation.

On Tuesday, Matshile met with the Cape Town Press Club at Kelvin Grove in Newlands and informed them that no one’s private property will be targeted, including the land of white farmers. He said, “Redistribution must look at whether the land is used productively, whether there is energy security and so on. We are not targeting white farmers.”
