Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe says some landowners are greedy, buying more land as it comes available, while the majority of South Africans don't have any land.
Speaking to Stephen Grootes on the Afternoon Drive, EWN reporter Mia Lindeque says the minister of land affairs, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane agreed with Mantashe that people are greedy when it comes to land 'while others are hungry for it'.
Minister Nkoana-Mashabane says white owners just want more and more land while people are hungry for land; want to work on the land but they can't access it if only a small group tend to hold on to that.— Mia Lindeque, EWN reporter
Australian Home affairs Peter Dutton made the announcement earlier in March that his country would fast-track visas for white farmers, after hearing about government’s plans to expropriate land without compensation.
She Nkoana-Mashabane shared some views on the comments made by the Australian Home affairs minister that they will prioritise white farmers applications to immigrate; she says that this should be ignored.— Mia Lindeque, EWN reporter
