TO PREACH LAND INVASION IN SA - UNACCEPTABLE
ISSUED BY MR. S. ABRAM, MP
UDM SPOKESPERSON FOR AGRICULTURE AND LAND AFFAIRS
UDM expresses its concern at the invitation sent to President Robert Mugabe to
attend a rally of South African tenants wanting to invade land. This invitation
was sent by the Mpumalanga labour tenants committee via Zimbabwe's High
Commissioner in South Africa, Simon Moyo.
The Mpumalanga labour tenants committee supports Zimbabwe-style land invasions
and blamed the government for not moving fast enough with regards to land reform
in South Africa. The threat of Zimbabwe-style invasions in South Africa is a
reflection of an inadequate and incompetent land distribution structure.
The UDM calls on the Minister of Agriculture and Land Affairs to urgently deal
with a potentially explosive situation by fast-tracking land reform in South
Africa through appropriate legal routes.
