@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.

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  


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  


2018-08-20 21:18:12 UTC  

millions and millions .... with nothing to lose

2018-08-20 21:18:20 UTC  

In the future we're going to regret that we didn't focus more efforts toward self-determination. I'm almost certain of this.

2018-08-20 21:18:36 UTC  

too late for that now I think

2018-08-20 21:19:52 UTC  

how would it start? riots and then spill over..
or do you think theyd actually plan an attack or provoke an attack

2018-08-20 21:20:17 UTC  

If you read all the articles its like each news agency copied each others article and no really tried to contact the owner,so much for journalism what are these people even paid for.

2018-08-20 21:21:21 UTC  

most of it is fake news...
and Im sure a lot cant publish what they really think or want to say
