The parliament of South Africa voted in favor of a motion to confiscate land owned by white farmers without compensation. The ruling follows decades of racial grievances and land disputes.
The bill's frontman and leader of the radical opposition party called the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema, said "The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice."
Malema went on to say, "We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land." The bill passed with an overwhelming 241 MPs voting in favor while only 83 voted against indicating the country's constitution will now likely be amended to reflect the expropriation of land.
During a 2017 government audit, it was learned white people own 72 percent of farmland. Returning the land to black farmers is something Malema has campaigned on. In 2016, Malema told his supports he was "not calling for the slaughter of white people - at least for now."
Last year more than 70 white farmers were killed in 340 attacks, making farming more dangerous than being a police officer.
African National Congress deputy chief Dorries Eunice Dlakude said the party "recognizes that the current policy instruments, including the willing-buyer, willing-seller policy may be hindering effective land reform."
The opposing Freedom Front Plus party leader Pieter Groenewald warned the motion could have dire consequences. "If you continue on this course, I can assure you there is going to be unforeseen consequences that [are] not in the interest of South Africa," Groenewald said before parliament.
Parliament's Constitutional Review Committee is expected to decide on changes to the constitution and report back to lawmakers by August 30.

A clear reminder your personal rights and property rights are but a single vote away. When Government cannot be held in check by a well arm citizenry backed by equal justice.
Remember Nelson Mandela's relationship to the South African Communist Party (SACP)?
The South African Communist Party (SACP) = is a Marxist oriented movement, that falsely spoke of honoring multiparty democracy and a mixed economy. An quickly showed its true colors shortly after taking power using various new PC name. It practiced brutal suppression and Neck-Tire burnings of rival political opponents and ppenly preached elimination of all whites.
remember when Africa was run my white men. then of course America had to get involved. and then we had a part tide. then of course we had to replace all the white men with black. now here you go
anonymous No. 19652 - Actually Socialists Liberals got involved.
BUT something needed to be done… the problem is the Communists were the most popular and took the reins .

They have tread great waters, they either stop killing these people, or face the wrath that will befall them all, in swift justice. If we must come in force, we will show no mercy, and no justice. All the guilty of Genocide, will be eliminated.
