South Africa crackdown on white farmers: Mayor rages ‘why are they afraid of losing land?’ | World | News

Locals in the town of Swellendam have voiced their worries to South African Parliament’s Joint Constitutional Review Committee, who held hearings across several parts of the country to hear farmers’ concerns.

On Friday, a delegate from the African National Congress, South Africa’s ruling party, told locals at the Swellendam hearing: “My white brothers and sisters, don’t worry.”
