Namibia follows South Africa with pledge to expropriate white-owned land

Namibian President Hage Geingob has called for a change to the constitution to allow the government to expropriate land from white citizens and redistribute it to the majority black population.

“Many Namibians were driven off their productive land,” Geingob said during his opening speech at a national land policy conference in the capital Windhoek.

According to him, the “willing-buyer willing-seller principle has not delivered results.” Under the practice the land owner must first offer the government an option to buy the farmland. The government can then buy the land and redistribute it.
