South Africa's tourism minister recently showed his support for the South African government's land expropriation without compensation plans.
On Thursday, Derek Hanekom, Minister of Tourism, was talking to the media during the launch of Tourism Month.
TimesLIVE reports Hanekom stated people can call it what they like but the land was stolen originally.
Hanekom then added that expropriation will not be happening on all land in South Africa, only where it is necessary.
