South Africa Considers Nationalization of Safari Lodges for Food Production [Beeld, SA; Bloomberg, USA]

According to a Bloomberg news report today:

South Africa is considering nationalizing safari lodges in certain provinces because they don’t contribute to food security, Beeld reported, citing Joe Phaahla, deputy minister of rural development and land reform.

Provinces that may be affected include Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the Eastern Cape, the Johannesburg-based Afrikaans-language newspaper reported. Farmers who utilize their land appropriately have nothing to fear as it would be “stupid” for the government to interfere, the newspaper cited Phaahla as saying.”
