There was speculation that the current land expropriation movement in South Africa was to enrich the ANC and EFF through money from Chinese mining interests. Roets accuses the government of paying only 10% of the agreed price for land already sold to the government which they now wish to pay nothing for. He calls out their Marxist revolutionary platform and makes some interesting comments about race relations.

This is fast becoming an awkward situation for the SA government. The certainty of an imploding economy and loss of tax base and employers when the rich flee the country are certainly a good deterrent. What if China had made them an agreement to pay the EFF off? Screw the consequences, we'll make you all rich and you can live anywhere. Just grab the land and let us have the rights for resources while you live like kings.


Just another corporate buy-out with a few million dead as an aside.
Would that be hunky dory with the Western Nations?
If we truly are under globalist control the US and Europe will do nothing meaningful to get between China and Africa.

Don't forget aswell that the chinese are seen as previously disadvantaged under the RSA law so conforming to the countries business bbeee laws is really easy for them and gives them the backing of government....

Just look at all the resources in Limpopo, which is the first farms targeted for expropriation:

Largest deposit of platinum group metals. Others include iron ore, chromium, high- and middle-grade coking coal, diamonds, antimony, phosphate, and copper, as well as mineral reserves like gold, emeralds, scheelite, magnetite, vermiculite, silicon, and mica. Commodities such as black granite, corundum, and feldspar are also found.
Waterberg Coalfield, 40% of all coal reserves
80% of all game hunting
Bushveld beef cattle

Any economy with energy and raw mineral resource needs, plus a taste for exotic animal parts would be tripping over themselves to get a slice of all that.

Explains Theresa May's recent visit to Africa and cosying up to various African "governments", all the while ignoring these "issues". Nothing more than a trip to confirm the backhanders / offshore bank accounts available in return for mining rights to British companies, the profits from which will never be taxed by HMRC and will buy some lucky buggers another mansion and yacht!

I 'dunno man, 'lucky' would suggest it just fell into their laps; what's going on seems pretty cold and calculated,

As long as it's happening to Whites I'm sure they deserve it.

A strange silence has seemed to fall over SA after a few weeks of intense news reports coming out.
It's worrying.
This would certainly explain why China feels the need to become a world-class Naval power.
Was a time the Soviets had great influence over the ANC.
Has that shifted to China as Russia becomes a more openly democratic and capitalist society?

I've been saying all along the Chinese will move in and the South Africans will find out what real racism and exploitation is.

The government thought it would be a pushover to just grab the land Zimbabwe style. The youth militias would turn up, the farmers would back down, hand over the title deeds and keys, then leave. But all those farms have multi-million rand financial loans from banks which have to be maintained. The banks were insisting that if the farmers are displaced they will still be responsible for making payments. If the militias kill the farmers, the banks lose - they will have no one to make payments. In turn the banks borrow from central banks and international lenders. If the land grabs go ahead, then there is no point anyone investing in South Africa and the currency nosedives (which it is doing now).

China also needs mineral and oil reserves in the South China Sea. They don't want to be at the mercy of global oil and commodity prices. So they just build an artificial island and lay claim to the surrounding ocean bed. Russia is making billions from selling oil and gas through to Europe via Ukraine, so they are happy.
