The history of both Australia and South Africa features episodes of British colonialism. It is therefore not very surprising to see that the country offering to fast-track the visa applications of white farmers currently being persecuted (and some claim even attacked) in South Africa, is Australia.

However, as this news highlights once again the targeting of white South African farmers, the South African government was quick to criticize the Australians for doing so.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">WATCH: Reporter Paul Toohey on why persecuted white farmers in South Africa should be given refugee status in Australia. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/theboltreport?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#theboltreport</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/SkyNewsAust?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@SkyNewsAust</a> <a href="https://t.co/tstst2vaUP">pic.twitter.com/tstst2vaUP</a></p>&mdash; The Bolt Report (@theboltreport) <a href="https://twitter.com/theboltreport/status/973118291278376960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

A spokesperson the South African government’s international relations minister, Mr Lindiwe Sisulu, stated that: “There is no need to fear, we want to say to the world that we are engaged in a process of land redistribution which is very important to address the imbalances of the past. But it is going to be done legally, and with due consideration of the economic impact and impact on individuals.”

Australia however, is convinced that illegal actions are being taken and therefore decided to grant urgent visas due to the "in-country persecution" of white South African farmers.

The Australian home affairs minister, Mr Peter Dutton (pictured), said the South African expat community in Australia "work hard and integrate well into Australian society."

"They contribute and make us a better country. They're the sorts of migrants that we want to bring into our country. I've asked my department to look at options and ways in which we can provide some assistance because I do think on the information I've seen people do need help, and they need help from a civilized country like ours."

Australian media have reported that an average of one white farmer per week is murdered in South Africa and that over 400 were attacked in 2017. The South African government claims those numbers are highly exaggerated.
