Dit is onmoontlik dat van die groter moondhede in die wêreld nie bewus kan wees van die heroïse geskiedenis van die Afrikanervolk en hulle besitreg alhier nie! Veral nie Australië wat vir baie dekades menigmaal erken het dat as jy nog nie teen Suid Afrika rugby gespeel het nie, jou status op die wêreldranglys nie na waarde geskat kan word nie.
Waarom dan ‘n stelling van Paul Toohey van die Sky News dat: “the country's new President Cyril Ramaphosa vows to seize back land without compensation.”? “Gryp terug”! Is dit bloot swak woordkeuse, is dit onkunde of is dit moedswillige erkenning dat die Afrikanervolk Suid Afrika onregmatig verkry het deur dit van die swartes te steel soos wat die leun versprei word? 1905–1906 New Zealand tour in Europe and North America Engeland teen die Kaapkolonie, 1891, Die eerste van die onoorwonne Bill MacLagan Britse Eilande toer na Suid-Afrika
Hoe dit ookal sy beskou die AVP dit in die omstandighede soos wat Toohey dit in sy koerant beskryf, as uiters swak joernalistiek wat die Afrikaner in ‘n swak lig plaas. Ook die foto’s en beeldmateriaal wat ons dilemma moet uitbeeld is van die swakste wat bekombaar is en reflekteer op die werklike beeld van die deursnee Afrikaner!
Toohey beskryf sy besoek aan Suid Afrika en die onmenslike wreedheid wat hy teëgekom het tydens plaasaanvalle. Sy kleur wys egter in een van sy uitlatings: “Rikkie is a sophisticated woman who understands the wrongs of apartheid” Onteenseglik verstaan Toohey niks van die werklike betekenis van apartheid nie en is sy siening vir hom gevorm deur die media wat hy dien! (Ons verdien dus wat die swartes op ons aflaai?)
Selfs sy blootstelling aan die gevolge van die teenhang van apartheid bring hom nie tot nugterheid nie. Die humanisme en internasionale medialeuens het besit geneem van sy nugter denke en hom afgestomp vir die werklikheid! Die leuens oor Mandela en sy sogenaamde droom het besit geneem van goedgelowige mense binne en buite Suid Afrika. In gesprek is dit egter duidelik dat die feite en werklikheid van wie en wat Mandela verteenwoordig, het vanweë hulle onbetrokke en onge-ergdheid, nooit by hulle uitgekom nie.
Dit is ‘n ongeskrewe wetmatigheid dat gebrek aan kennis geen regverdiging vir onreg verteenwoordig nie! Europa is juis nou besig om die prys daarvoor te begin betaal! Die gevolge is in Suid Afrika sigbaar hoewel onwaarneembaar vir hulle wat kies om in ontkenning te bly leef! Dit is waarom prof Lyle Rossiter in sy boek “The Liberal Mind” tot die gevolgtrekking kom dat sulke gedrag, om nie te glo wat jy sien nie, jou as kranksinnig kategoreer! Die AVP kan daarmee saamstem uit ervaring oor baie jare se stryd met diesulkes!
WHITE FARMERS FACE SURGE OF VIOLENCE IN SOUTH AFRICA(SKY NEWS WA)
White farmers in South Africa are being murdered at a rate of more than one per week, as the country's new President Cyril Ramaphosa vows to seize back land without compensation. News Corp Australia chief reporter Paul Toohey, who travelled to South Africa to investigate, has told Sky News farmers are struggling to defend themselves, and local police are not dedicating enough resources to investigate the crimes. More than 400 farmers were attacked in 2017.

Ordinary South Africans will be at the centre of the process to review and, if necessary, amend the Constitution to provide land expropriation without compensation. Parliament’s constitutional review committee which was given the task of reviewing and possibly amending section 25 of the Constitution will go on a countrywide road show starting in May to solicit the views of ordinary South Africans on the proposed changes.
This follows the adoption of an Economic Freedom Fighters and ANC motion for the expropriation of land without pay by the National Assembly 12 days ago, and by the national council of provinces (NCOP) this past week. The adoption of the motion does not mean the amendment of the Constitution is a fait accompli. Committee co-chairperson Vincent Smith (ANC) said this week the committee was under pressure to start the work.
It had initially planned to meet this (coming) week but the NCOP is on oversight in the Eastern Cape. The committee will have its first meeting on March 20 to draft and possibly adopt the land expropriation programme, which will need to be “costed”, as the process will be a significant departure from the joint committee’s normal operations. At that meeting Smith will propose the committee visits all nine provinces and holds at least three consultative public meetings in each province.
It will simultaneously call for written submissions from the public. “I think we need to cover as many people as possible and not have people prejudiced by not being able to come here [to Cape Town]. I will propose we go to the people,” said Smith. Under normal circumstances South Africans send in written submissions to the committee – a joint committee made up of the National Assembly and NCOP MPs once every year in May to propose any changes they would like see in the Constitution.
The committee deals with those submissions and publishes a report at the end of the year. But with the contentious land expropriation proposal, the committee will go out to solicit views in provinces, as well as accept written submissions. This will also not be limited to the month of May, said Smith. The National Assembly has agreed that any amendments to the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation must go through a parliamentary process. The joint committee’s brief is clear: “The committee has the task of, after consulting broadly, advising Parliament about whether the current constitutional provisions as contained in section 25 are adequate or, in the event that section 25 needs amendments, the nature of the amendments,” Smith said.
“Second, the committee must get the views of stakeholders on the necessity of, and the mechanisms for, expropriating land without compensation,” he said. As an ANC member, Smith said there might be some expectation or pressure to come to certain conclusions. The governing party resolved at its national conference in December to amend the Constitution to achieve land expropriation without compensation, provided it was sustainable.
Head of the ANC’s economic transformation subcommittee Enoch Godongwana told journalists then that the discussion on land expropriation nearly collapsed the conference. “It was rowdy and tough, no doubt about that,” he said.
“I’m damned if I do, I’m damned if I don’t,” said Smith responding to a question about possible pressure of overseeing the process as a deployee of the ANC.
He said although this was an ANC conference resolution, it became a parliamentary matter when all but four political parties represented in the National Assembly supported it. “Yes, the party that I belong to happens to be one of those. So I must be able to go back and say: ‘Madoda, this thing that we want to do, that we have agreed upon, is only doable if we change the Constitution or this thing is doable, you don’t have to change the Constitution.’
“That’s the task I have … those resolutions are taken at conference whatever they are but ultimately they must stand the constitutional muster when assessed,” he said. Smith said the mandate of the committee was twofold: “Now that we want to expropriate land without compensation, is the legal framework [section 25 of the Constitution] able to sustain that?
“All that must happen now is that it must be done in line with the Constitution. Some people might argue the Constitution is fine as it is and it has not been tested, but others are saying, ‘it’s not fine, you must change it’ and that is the question we must answer from our side. “We could come and say to everybody, ‘you know what, in fact there is no need to change the Constitution, just go and do it [expropriate without compensation] and let somebody challenge it in court or to safeguard ourselves’ and add a sentence, ‘so that even if somebody takes it to court we can support expropriation without compensation where it is in the public interest’. That is what is going to happen,” said Smith.(Beklemtoning van die AVP)
