Hectares of politics
Extreme economic differences, racial thinking, uneven chances of education and employment, as well as corruption are splitting the South African society. Even 25 years after the end of Apartheid, many questions remain open, major problems unsolved. The white minority still owns most of the country‘s farmland. Is that fair after all those years of rightist apartheid regime? Who is allowed to farm the land, who can call it their home soil? People are demanding a radical land-reform. Political parties like the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and Black Land First (BLF) demand expropriation of farmland without compensation. They want reparation for the suffering during apartheid regime. The ANC also makes expropriation without compensation part of their political agenda. The Boer landowners feel threatened, isolate themselves from society, and radicalize. Conflict between black and white is rising. Blacks fight for a home, jobs, power and for their version of history.
