The land dispossession of black South Africans


The Land Act of 1913 formalised the land dispossession of black South Africans. It limited African land ownership to ‘native reserves’, with communal land tenure administered by traditional leaders. Other laws prevented Africans from owning land in white farming areas and prevented white farmers from leasing land to black tenants and share croppers* … almost 100yrs later … has anything really changed on the ground for the black South African?!

I hope one day this will read “The Land Act of 2013 formalised the land dispossession of white ‘South Africans’ … Other laws prevented Europeans from owning land in farming areas and prevented African farmers from leasing land to European tenants and share croppers
Nb: Africans by colonization doesn’t count

Table Mountain


According to Wikipedia, Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa, and is featured in the flag of Cape Town and other local government insignia.

This Mountain is one of 3 World Heritage sites in the City of Cape Town and is a backdrop to literally everything in Cape Town. You see it from everywhere. It is also the most visited tourist attraction in Kaapstad – without it Cape Town would not be.
