  'Land Reform' Zimbabwae inspired farm grabs
BBC NEWS | Africa | S African white farm to be seized: "But he added that South Africa must speed up land reform or face chaos.

Eighty per cent of agricultural land is owned by white South Africans, who make up only 10% of the population - the legacy of apartheid laws.

Since coming to power in 1994, the current government has adopted a 'willing buyer, willing seller' approach to land redistribution, paying market prices for land that white owners are prepared to sell, and then distributing it to landless blacks.

But Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka says the pace of reform should be speeded up - as in neighbouring Zimbabwe, where most white-owned land has been seized by the state.

'There needs to be a bit of oomph. That's why we may need the skills of Zimbabwe to help us,' she said. "
