90% Black Farms Failing In South Africa

Just in case you were wondering how the handing over of South African farms from white farmers to their black “counterparts” was going….it’s not going very well. I know, I know. This is shocking and unbelievable, but sadly true. These farms just don’t seem to be as productive under black rule as they were under white …a bit like the country.

South African Land reform minister Gugile Nkwinti says 90% of the farmland it has given to Blacks to run are failing, and may be forced to repossess the properties if they continue to not produce.

The ANC-led government has bought nearly 60,000 sq km (23,000 sq miles) of land from farmers under the “willing-buyer-willing-seller” program, and given it away to Blacks who allegedly suffered under apartheid.

“The farms – which were active accruing revenue for the state – were handed over to people, and more than 90% of those are not functional,” Nkwinti told the BBC last March.

The ANC set a goal of buying and redistributing a third of White-owned land, but now has to scrap the plan and focus on training the Blacks who now farms on how to run them.

  1. Also note that the 10 % of farms that do work are the ones where they rehired the white farmer to become a farm manager at a hefty price tag. If not for this the number would almost be 100%.
