Zimbabwean newspaper campaign turns worthless banknotes into gold
Jacob Zuma’s presidency has taken on a particular flavour. Exposés of capricious political interference in important arms of the state such as the prosecuting authority, the police and the intelligence services have become commonplace: there is little shock factor left in the abuses of power and process committed by his friends in his name; and there is no parallel with any other SA president in the extent to which he has personally benefited from holding office.
About 100 people have gathered since Sunday to lay claim to a plot of land in Durban. EFF’s Lindani Mthembu told News24 in Ballito, “We are not grabbing any land but we are occupying the unused land.”
President Jacob Zuma handed over 85 new tractors to the Masibuyele Emasimini (back to the fields) project in Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal in June 2010 to encourage small-scale farming.

The statistics were jointly released by AfriForum and the Transvaal Agricultural Union (Tau SA).
In February, EFF leader Julius Malema called on white people to join the party to get their hands on land. “White people must join the struggle for land. Only two percent of whites own land. If they want land, they must join EFF,” he said at the time.
You all know that Zimbabwe is a blueprint for South Africa right?
It is interesting to note that the media have kept this little piece of information very quite… Handing ex white farms obtained in the most brutal way to the Chinese!
