Lekota is misguided when it comes to land

Former defence minister Mosiuoa Lekota's misguided and defensive stance on land expropriation without compensation may not help Cope's dwindling fortunes in next year's elections.

The UN declared apartheid a crime against humanity after the regime's racist policies such as the Land Act of 1913 drove people off their lands, out of homes and broke up families.

There was an intended, systematic and malicious takeover of property and wealth. That makes theft a lesser crime to you, Mr Lekota!

These issues are a time bomb. And it cannot be business as usual.
