The video gathered a reaction from social media users, and decided to take a look at some of the comments it received- and it showed tweeps were not happy with him.

Social media user @Masilosir wrote, "Why are so sceptical about this whole issue when you're certain that the Constitution does protect you, section 25 will be amended and thereafter the rest will be history."
Twitter user @FrankBl74877457 added, "This is an act of treason, threatening war. Africa Stand-Up, and charge this potential terrorist."
Another tweep, @lungisa74786535, wrote: "My understanding of Expropriation is that the land will belong to the state. People of South Africa will have to get permit 4rm the government to use that piece of land they want for different purposes regardless of their colour. Don't allow greed to overshadow ur intelligence."
