They say that Goldfish have very short memories. A few minutes after they’ve seen something, they forget it. It looks like our country is being run by a goldfish.
Last week JVB made a dramatic announcement about a “landmark decision to seal loopholes that lead to native land being converted to freehold property”. No sale of native land under his watch.
This week the propaganda machine has announced that 1700 acres of native land have been leased for 99 years to FSC to grow cane. Effectively, no landowner alive today will see his land back in ownership. If they want to use it they’ll have to buy it from FSC. Isn’t this conversion to freehold without the courage to admit it
Is there a link between the two announcements? Could it be that fearless Frank, the Cassava Patch warrior, had a heart tremour when he was asked to sign off on the 99 year lease? Was the ‘no land sales under his watch’ announcement made in a desperate hope of showing he’s determined to protect native land?
This is just ridiculous enough to be true.
