AfriForum embarks on an international campaign to halt land expropriation policy

Lobby group AfriForum CEO, Kallie Kriel, says international communities should put pressure on government to reconsider its policy on expropriation of land without compensation.

We have enough to be worried about and we think the international community has enough to be worried about because people will not want to invest if they know their investment will not be safe.

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO

We have an obligation to get as much international pressure on South African government to reconsider...

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO

Kriel says he thinks the government and the ruling party have jumped the gun by making the policy public without clarifying what it entails.

He says land expropriation without compensation will have detrimental effects just like it did to Zimbabwe.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has condemned land smash and grabs but Kriel says it still doesn't help if government has made it into policy.

That doesn't really calm fears to say we are not going to grab but we are going to do it in a nice way...

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO

The fact is people who own property will loose it without being compensated.

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO

Afriforum has embarked on a process to engage with the international community to get them to put pressure on the South African government, says Kriel.

We are going to different countries around the world speaking to influential people to make sure that the South African government gets the message.

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO

We cannot sit back and watch government go down this route... they have made their intentions clear and we have to use every measure in our disposal to save the economy not just for the white property owners but for the poorest of the poor.

Kallie Kriel, Afriforum CEO
