IFP leader Inkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi warned that if the expropriation of land without compensation was not handled properly, it could prompt investors to disinvest and reignite racial tensions.
While Buthelezi stressed he supported land expropriation without compensation, he emphasised that it should be done within the confines of the law.
He said it was problematic for the government to take land which it wanted without compensating anyone. “I’m deeply concerned by where the expropriation of land without compensation will lead us.
“I’m not against it.
“But if we do not handle it with great care it is certain to deter foreign investment,” he said.
