Sihle Ngobese has consistently slammed Land Expropriation without Compensation, saying it is “clearly NOT aimed at land restitution.”
Ngobese went on to say socialist politicians are “desperate to control black people”. The sentiment appears to be echoed by Leon Louw, of the Law Review Project, who says the biggest risks will be faced by poorer South Africans, especially those who have recently received their title deeds for property ownership after years of dispossession.
#LandExpropriation without compensation is clearly NOT aimed at land restitution.
This policy seeks to enact the racism of black socialist politicians.
They hate white South Africans, and are desperate to control black people.

Sihle Ngobese has previously spoken at Ineng events on the artificially high costs of data for everyday South Africans due to government monopolies and licencing procedures that benefit large companies – instead of opening a more dynamic free market economy open to all entrepreneurs.
On property rights Ineng’s Unathi Kwaza, who has overseen workshops affirming means to extend property rights for all, says by undermining them huge risks await South Africa.
“The ANC has failed the majority of the poor and black people of this country and now they want a quick and populist way to cling on to power. Then the EFF comes in, also desperate for more power – and land grabs seem to be the answer,” said Kwaza.
“Zimbabwe has had these kinds of politicians about 20 years ago and they collapsed the economy. Around 90% remain unemployed today and the government tis trying to reverse the process as we speak. Why do ANC and EFF think land grabs will have different results for SA? Are they that desperate for power at the expense of the poor who are already suffering the most? Wake up voters”
Previous Ineng workshops have proposed the following solutions, which so far have been ignored:
- Temba Nolutshungu forcefully argues the point that millions of black South Africans occupy property, and have for generations, yet do not own that property over two decades after liberation. Immediate property rights restoration with full title are required.
- Government must pursue the sale of superfluous public facilities for acquisition by entrepreneurs (asset ownership). This reduces costs of rent and buying land in areas especially where few private commercial sites are available – notably townships.
- Failing state assets should be sold on the open market to entrepreneurs and allocate the sale of proceeds to the poor via direct transfers or share ownership (asset ownership).
Entrepreneurs at Ineng’s Entrepreneurs In Public Policy workshops consistently argue for the urgent need for property rights policies to ensure entrepreneurs can succeed, by becoming direct owners in the economy.
