Since the land expropriation without compensation poked its head out in SA, Australia and Russia opened its arms to white farmers, who fear for their lives in South Africa.

Recently a debate on Twitter proved South Africans are much more mature over the issues then it is believed.

A tweep called Ntuthuko Mdima wrote on Twitter, “Like engineers, some smart countries are open their arms to South African farmers. Russia understands & appreciate the skilful South African farmer,currently endangered commodity in South Africa. Why South Africa is so shortsighted about this matter? Zim, here we come!!!” saw his post sparked a healthy debate on Twitter, and some tweeps felt they could understand why white farmers would want to flee the country.

Kunda Scozin Mambwe wrote, “The violent and aggressive tone in some Leaders when talking about taking the land forcefully will scare me too to flee to another place if I was a farmer . It’s not what you say by how you say it!”
