Tragic indeed.
We need to do everything possible in our power to restore the potential economic activity of South Africa to enable employment opportunities for the 12 million unemployed fellow citizens.

Go look at Lisbon near Kruger gate it was also one of the best in Southern hemisphere and left to rot away since early 2000. 1000's more around Mpumalanga and Limpopo can imagine the rest of the country. ANC footprints are everywhere!!

It's sad, Africans let's have plans before we demand to be given the land back, the land is now in your hands and it's collapsed. This farm fed the whole of Zebediela community
 
In reply to @News24
All citrusses and farms claimed by local communities have collapsed. We want land and but can't work the land to work for us
 
In reply to @News24
What can be done to rescucitate it..I believe those workers are capable to continue operating it
 
How many prize farms have gone down the drain since the ANC came into power?
Yet, they are screaming louder than ever, we want the land.
Brainless bloody idiots.

Cc @MadiBoity. ANC success story you were talking about
 
In reply to @News24
We all know who can get that farm to operate, hire people and be profitable again but it is the 1st of December and I don't want to be dragged, let's drink beers 🍻🍻
 
Reader’s Digest Illustrated Guide to Southern Africa wrote in 1978 that “nearly 400 million oranges are harvested each year from the groves of Zebediela, the world’s biggest citrus estate." 565 000 Citrus trees were planted on 2 260 ha of this estate’s land. Nothing left... pic.twitter.com/vc9PGf58vP

Decolonization happening apace..

Our challenge as the youth of Zebediela is before us. Let’s rally the necessary support to revive what has been lost here. An orange tree from seed to tree is 5 years if we wait any longer the job is that much harder @WandileSihlobo please advise. @RG_Humphries

Yet another government backed success story brought to you by the thieving cadres in the ANC
 
In reply to @News24
They wanted land, got land, gov gave it. A lot that say they want land actually want money without working hard for it.

pity for those that still believes in the eff.
 
In reply to @News24
I read somewhere few years ago that 4300 farms were bought for communities on willing seller/ buyer basis and they have all collapsed becoz of poor management and lack of capital. We need to plan properly how these farms are going to be managed and capitalized

Slowly slowly moving towards another Zimbabwe. Can we name but one thing that the ANC did well since coming into power. This rainbow nation must elect a party that puts country first and not a party that is there to enrich themselves 😡
 
In reply to @News24
And this is not the first collapse of Zebediela since 1994.
 
In the whole region!?? 😬
 
 
Wth !?

This sounds like Zimbabwe.

What the heck is the ANC Doing?

Destroying yet another excellent institution. Like SAA. Like Denel. Like Eskom. Railway. Hospitals.

Seriously? Come on ANC/EFF voters!?

Wth ?

CPAs (mostly inexperienced and uneducated rural folks), given a crooked lawyers and unsupportive Government officials. A carefully orchestrated plan to loot previously prominent and profitable farms.
