Is South African Land Reform policy failing?
South Africa’s Land Reform policy intends to redistribute land in order to reduce inequality and empower poor black farm workers. However the policy is causing concern both in South Africa and abroad with some going as far as claiming a white genocide is now being carried out across South Africa. Is the land reclamation policy in South Africa working or causing the re-ignition of racial tensions in South Africa?

The policy needs to go further but is lacking something vital

These land reforms are a step in the right direction for a country that has a history of apartheid and huge levels of ongoing racial disparity. However the government have found that around 90% of redistributed land is not being used productively, with the new owners tending to engage in subsistence farming. To avert a failing agriculture economy, the land reforms need to go further and education needs to be included in a land for compensation deal, this would be fair for all and lead to greater success for both sides, as can be seen in the case of Paul Doubell’s farm. youtube.com/watch?v=ygWRJ2Ht1kU
