Since the courts are ignoring the law ... how long before people start ignoring the courts ... no really really ignoring the courts ... no, normal people, I mean.

2018-08-20 20:34:41 UTC  

I just hope that other platforms will get big. I dont even fb or twitter,FB is the worst out of all of them.

2018-08-20 20:35:20 UTC  

Youtube with its drama lately will force content creators to move to new platforms

2018-08-20 20:39:50 UTC  

@Bird_Goes_Beep I've always said, youtube or any other streaming service should only allow you to comment or vote a video if you've watched it. They can really easily write a solution like this.

2018-08-20 20:39:57 UTC  

if they can't they can hire me.

2018-08-20 20:44:51 UTC  

@Derdecourt is not ignoring it. What will happen is,the court will get a figure which is "just" and the owner will have to take it. The constitution say expropriation can happen but a price must be agreed upon by buyer/seller else the court can intervene and set the price. Example state are currently willing to pay R20M bur farmer wants R200M,it will go to court and a price decided. The court can say R20m is the correct amount,since it does not need to be market related. Then farmer has no choice but to take it.

2018-08-20 20:47:27 UTC  

Gonzo, in this case court simply denied hearing the case.

2018-08-20 20:47:39 UTC  

The matter was never allowed to progress to court at all.

2018-08-20 20:50:03 UTC  

*declined hearing

2018-08-20 20:54:51 UTC  

@Bird_Goes_Beep no i dont believe it. The spokesperson said "apparently" as in she doesnt know the full story either i bet. Our constitution clearly states the law and the farmer has a right to his injuction and day in court with the state. The land expropriation law is very clear.

2018-08-20 20:57:08 UTC  

Yes. However if the courts decline to hear a case, it allows them to essentially bypass the entire issue.

2018-08-20 20:57:40 UTC  

They have likely appeared in court already and the court propably set a date,we just dont know about it. Did any of our journos contact akkerland boerdery for further comment? I only see the same message duplicate by all agencies.

2018-08-20 20:57:55 UTC  

You can see analogous cases in regards to application of crimen injuria laws against BLF, as well as some of the fraud cases against Malema and co.

2018-08-20 20:58:07 UTC  

which is why Afriforum are pushing ahead with private prosecutions.

2018-08-20 20:59:18 UTC  

Anyways, I'll see what shakes out. The optics here are not good. It really does look like the ANC are pushing ahead regardless.

2018-08-20 20:59:30 UTC  

The akkerland case will see its day in court and the court will set the price,that is what will happen.

2018-08-20 21:00:22 UTC  

I hope so. But the relevant department has denied their application for an injunction. Meaning that in the meantime, they face eviction regardless.

2018-08-20 21:08:32 UTC  

They are def going ahead with this crap

2018-08-20 21:08:32 UTC  

Ditsem! @Rox, you just advanced to level 2!

2018-08-20 21:08:40 UTC  

Sad times. Sad, sad times.

2018-08-20 21:08:47 UTC  

scary times

2018-08-20 21:09:46 UTC  

It's your duty to revolt against a corrupt government

2018-08-20 21:10:53 UTC  

Do you think any foreign governments will intervene and help us?

2018-08-20 21:12:22 UTC  

Nope

2018-08-20 21:13:01 UTC  

It will just be framed as white people being racist

2018-08-20 21:13:01 UTC  

When / If ... a war starts ... when do you think it will happen? I mean like full on fighting

2018-08-20 21:13:10 UTC  

ya same old crap

2018-08-20 21:13:48 UTC  

Cities are going to be absolute hell

2018-08-20 21:14:12 UTC  

yes agree... best to get out of the cities

2018-08-20 21:14:33 UTC  

But when? When will this happen.. and will it be sudden?

2018-08-20 21:15:55 UTC  

It's gonna start when they get too impatient, or when the economy collapses

2018-08-20 21:16:12 UTC  

So we still have a bit of time?

2018-08-20 21:16:58 UTC  

These BLF and their ilk seem to me like the sort of people who might poison the water. Gotta watch out for them.

2018-08-20 21:17:31 UTC  

How many BLF are there? Not too many?

2018-08-20 21:17:48 UTC  

More EFFs out there

2018-08-20 21:17:54 UTC  

No, but it's not just them.

2018-08-20 21:17:58 UTC  

How many dumb youth are there?

2018-08-20 21:18:00 UTC  

yep

2018-08-20 21:18:12 UTC  

millions and millions .... with nothing to lose
