a communist area secret police. say with the headlines do stay with us the stream is next. with a big breaking news story can be chaotic and frantic behind the scenes. people shouting instructions if you will trying to provide the best most curious up to date information as quickly as you can. it's when you come on being stupid to realize you see history in the making. ok and i'm really could be and you're in the stream today will return a white owned line to black africans helps of africa will discuss the country's plan for land expropriation without compensation.
5:22 pm
the african national congress says it wants to take back land without compensation from white farmers and transfer ownership to black citizens the plan aims to reduce racial disparities in land ownership caused by the nation's history of land dispossession where colonizers forced black south africans to live in rural reserves white south african still own the majority of lines of the country that is eighty percent black since the end of apartheid in one thousand nine hundred four the government has been slowly buying back a white owned the redistribution to black farmers but government critics say the process is taking too long and this brought a little change so how should south africa right the wrongs of the policy as far as land is concerned with us to talk about this important. she is an associate professor of law at northwestern university where she teaches land reform
5:23 pm
indigenous law and property law intake. is a sociologist and also in cape town we have ben cousins research of public t.v. land and agrarian studies at the university of the west and hello everybody good to have you. so you know all thanks good evening and thanks for being here we got several questions online from our community when we said we were doing this show about what expropriation is here since one here's another from a west wanting to know the present generation of farmers and how they got this land we actually got an answer on twitter this is the boy who says land expropriation without compensation has to happen when the dutch sadler's arrived they never purchased the land but expropriate it from the natives and forcefully remove them from the land obviously this current generation inherited the land from their forefathers that stole it apartheid legacy is still alive even after the fall of their parts eight system then he says expropriation has to happen after he gave us
5:24 pm
a brief history lesson there where do you fall on that argument. about sixty seven percent of all every culture learned by white farmers. in the past it's mean even higher percentages this is the result of a history of learned disposition if you like to learn this which helped to create credibly unequal an oppressive system not only part of it but the colonial era before that it's undoubtedly chief cause of poverty inequality in our society today and we have to do something about it and there's no doubt that we need a wide ranging let reform program the slowness of land reform programme means that suddenly explode creation of land with or without compensation is the big issue of the moment but that history lives with us it's a very real history it's very apparent to many south africans and we have to do something about it says that i want to share this south africa headline was booing
5:25 pm
hotaling screaming and chaos welcome to the land exposed creation debate and over the top has. to people have to. yeah lolol i mean that probably refers to the debate that's happened in parliament where they discussed this very issue there's a motion before the haas which is essentially calling for land expropriation of our compensation to be investigated as a means of. speeding up land reform so the descriptors are probably very accurate or into how that debate in the house happened but the question really becomes this how is the debate happening in society you know how's the been happening in the spaces where people don't have access to the media don't have access to you know social media even to be able to voice their their opinions and there's a lot of research and data that shows that actually this isn't maybe the most signs
5:26 pm
of mouth topic but most of the africans are talking about that actually unemployment and poverty up to get issues but again i do agree with ben cousins the good prophet he says that you know land this position historically has played a major impact was had a major impact of course on how. and the income distribution happens in this country to save him make a really important point how our everyday south africans discussing as you say they aren't but when they are being asked about what they want about land reform do they have the facts are. absolutely i think we all as some africans have a general grasp of the history just position this country the issue really and the real debate becomes how do you fix this do you take a radical approach which is very symptomatic of those countries left or as i call them twenty lefties really who believe that the state has the power to just possess people without compensation because that's what really means expropriation of our
5:27 pm
compensation is essentially handing power over to the states to confiscate property from individual the families that society cannot compensation all really do we find in the other approach which is more rational which allows for a more win win outcome in society and i put it to the guests and everybody here that most of the africans are looking for a win win solution one which is rational and legal and also secures property rights for all citizens black or white. when we talk about land expectoration in south africa another country one of your neighbors comes up often in conversation a course here brings it up exposed place and land without compensation is impossible take it from zimbabwe this idea that what happened in zimbabwe so let's go back to the year two thousand there was gary agrarian reform so many of them bob plains farmers were forced out and the farming economy basically the the money out
5:28 pm
of the farming company completely lessened baba and now they are really struggling and that's we are inviting some of those farmers back to zimbabwe zimbabwe that idea that i mean if you don't like that. that i don't think that's actually an accurate depiction of the generation where the radical land reform in zimbabwe did have some negative consequences namely the suspension of the rule of law while learned a few patients are taking place and the flight of capital but in many respects the agricultural economy is not collapse that will in fact many of the beneficiaries of land reform are producing quite well in particular cash crops such as cotton in years gone by. tobacco smaller farmers are very productive the lack of supply of inputs so the result of that wider problems in the economy is a problem but i think one also is exaggerating the extent to which white farmers
5:29 pm
are being allowed back i don't think that's happening on any kind of scale it will i think it's really listen ted and i think the real lesson from zimbabwe is that you can do a radical and redistribute learn to smallholder farmers if you supply them with enough support they can be very productive and that's a very positive listen we can take them over the negative lesson is that we should do it within the rule of law we shouldn't have human rights abuses and we have to have it overseen by an effective state which is not captured. corrupt interests or elite interests that's my view on this and bobby situation i did live the. department of agriculture and did my ph d. there. how do i balance your superior i know the age and perhaps a little biased then for. all that i am also glad that this person on twitter seems to agree with you because you seem to be an expert on this and he says at this stage no one in the ruling party is proposing anything like that zimbabwe's past
5:30 pm
track land reform but little and social conditions in the two countries are entirely different i mean is that how you see it as well. yes no turkey i think has been saved we still have the rule of law and it's quite a firm rule of law we have recourse to the to the courts if it's necessary perhaps we are leaving too much to the courts but some people argue but i think what is happening in south africa is actually quite a positive moment i know it's very delicate i know a lot of people are scared but we are revisiting our ninety ninety four fact that we made as a country i think that same understood till it made the point earlier this year that when he said maybe the issue is not really just about land all even about land and all it is about nationhood it's about social cohesion i can't remember these exact words but we are we are looking as a country and how we did or did not address the injustices of the past and what went wrong and how do we renegotiated them because of put it very nicely on friday
5:31 pm
night he said we are the next generation we cannot you know look back at my day a lot and say i made all these mistakes because they did what they need to do and we as the next generation we need to do think how are we going to go forward and i think that's a very positive point to be at at the moment and then to frame that the land conversation in that sort of. conversation is quite interesting because that's basically a symptom of all the other things that is going on in the country and in my opinion i mean mention to back of his joining us right now from johannesburg. overall south african lawyer who has been advising the government on land reform and he's also the author of the land is out south africa's lawyers and the birth of consequent constitution to mecca when you're looking at the risks associated with land reform or how south land reform what concerns you the most about double the job don.
5:32 pm
well us and we are promoting the three areas of concern from where i stand the first area of concern is the lack of a clear plan by the government i think for the past twenty four years we have not had a quote here and clear vision about what the government actually turns to doing in order to realize land reform the second area of concern is short termism it is the idea that. despite the fact that we've got clear policies clear laws and clear legislation. when the government fails to implement those laws and legislation usually results to short term use in other words you hear discussions about there is a need to change the constitution so i do get worried about adherence to the rule of law and then the third area of concern is no pace of wonder for i think the that's for our tomorrow and is quite clear across the board that the pace is
5:33 pm
too slow and ought to be moving faster and this know how we are the greater the potential for social instability. so. i think that the similarity between south africa and zimbabwe in fact conditions as undressed the choices are in some ways very different but the strong political symbolism of land is a similarity between the two and if we don't deal with the land issue in south africa it's not going to go away it stands for a whole lot of things but it is also a very real issue in its own right areas and occupations taking place because people lack places to build houses for themselves of course that's partly a housing issue and a serious issue not just the land issue but being expressed of the land issue and it's a very serious issue and unless we deal with it rationally populism which was definitely
5:34 pm
present in zimbabwe could again. severely.
