South Africa problems
« on: March 06, 2018, 06:40:00 PM »
I just heard some disturbing information about South Africa.  Looks like the government is in the process of possibily taking over the land possession of the "whites".  Nothing is final yet, but could happen by August.  This might really create some problems in that country.  I really don't know much about it yet, but something to watch.  I can see where this might cause a lot of unrest in their countries.

No problem, same stuff that has been around since 94. The one that put out that report has since released an up date saying that it was just media bull. They have a new president coming into power and he is a business man as well as a game rancher and outfitter. South Africa knows that they must have the tourism business.
I spoke with my outfitter last week and he sent me a ton of info on the deal. Nothing to worry about!

We pretty ok here. Just radical bull dust.
Our new president is walking a tight rope. He has to keep foreign investors happy so he has shuffled the cabinet again. Our new finance minister and minister of public enterprise are two of the best ministers we have. They will weed out corruption and make sure state owned enterprises run properly without bail outs. Some crooks are still in parliament, but thats so he doesnt create a divide in the ruling party. He needs to keep it together till 2019 so he can have a full term as president.

As for land grabs. It is worrying, but he is a businessman and knows if he takes productive land away it will hammer our economy. He might redistribute land not being used or Grant title deeds to those living on tribal land.

I'm positive living in South Africa, we do however have a big problem in race based farm attacks.

Tourists are safe from major crime imho. People realise they create jobs and we need jobs here.

We live in a stunning country and I hope you guys get to come share it with us.
Proudly South African

Good to get this information.  This has been a dream hunting trip and sure don't want to get into a difficult situation.  I am getting to old to wait several years for things to get straightened out. ha
I will keep checking this site and others for any upcoming problems.  Makes me glad that I bought insurance for the flight and hunt though. ha

Thanks for weighing in Bruce. We are heading there next year.   Remember we only here the news that the media wants us to hear and the way they want it to be represented. The media has agenda and what ever gets peoples attention that is what they put out there
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!
