This is an astonishing comment from a leading South African politician. If you have been following the news in recent days, you would likely be aware of the deteriorating situation facing South African farmers. In 2017, 82 farmers were killed, in 423 attacks on farms. So far in 2018 there have been 15 murders and 109 attacks.
What is going on, what is likely to be the impact of these actions, and should they learn some lessons from neighbouring Zimbabwe?
