South African city to begin confiscating land from white citizens in national test case — RT Business News


Local authorities in the South African city of Ekurhuleni are set to begin expropriating privately owned land, without paying for it, as part of a national test case for the country’s controversial land reform program.

The city council approved an “expropriation without compensation” bill that had been pushed by ruling African National Congress (ANC) earlier this year, the Associated Press reports.

Nearly 600,000 of the four million people living in the city are reportedly stuck in an awful housing crisis due to the shortage of lands for building new homes. The land crunch is forcing people to stay in “informal settlements.”

Republican-Supporting Ad Says White Democrats Want to Lynch Black Men When ‘White Girl Screams Rape’


A radio advertisement being run in Arkansas in support of Republican Representative French Hill features exaggerated stereotypes of African-American accents claiming that black voters should support Hill and Republicans because Democrats want to lynch black men when “a white girl screams rape.” The ad, which is not endorsed by Hill, was paid for by the PAC Black Americans for the President’s Agenda.

In a statement to Newsweek about the ad Thursday, Hill said: “I condemn this outrageous ad in the strongest terms. There’s no place in Arkansas for this nonsense.”

The ad seeks to capitalize on the recent heated battle to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, in which the now-justice was accused of sexual misconduct by three women. One of the accusers, Christine Blasey Ford,…

A South African court on Wednesday convicted two white farmers of murdering a 16-year-old black boy suspected of stealing sunflowers in a remote northwestern farming community.

Pieter Doorewaard and Philip Schutte were found to have killed Matlhomola Mosweu on April 20 last year, after claiming they caught him in the act of taking a plant from a farm in the area.

The boy died after being thrown out of a moving vehicle driven by the pair and suffering a broken neck, in a case that sparked rioting and looting of white-owned businesses in the town of Coligny.

The men had claimed that the teen jumped off the truck as they drove him to the police.
