- Thandi Modise is accused of animal cruelty after animals died of hunger on her farm in 2014
- Modise insists she's being targeted to put black farmers in a bad light
- AfriForum says the SPCA approached them to do something about the case
Thandi Modise, chairperson of the National Council of Provinces, feels that AfriForum is targeting her to make black farmers look bad.
She says the group only wants to take her to court on allegations of animal cruelty to make it look like black South Africans can't farm, according to a report by EWN.
Modise feels she is being prosecuted to put black farmers in a bad light amid the land expropriation discussions in South Africa.
However, AfriForum said the SPCA approached them in November 2017, before land expropriation became a real thing.
Briefly.co.za earlier reported on how AfriForum’s private prosecution unit led by Advocate Gerrie Nel intends to privately prosecute Modise.
