- Sizwe feels strongly against people acquiring land when they have zero plans for it
- He shared some pictures of his eucalyptus farm and this is where it all stemmed from
- A social media user asked for advice and Sizwe totally flipped out, telling the social media user to knowledge up before asking silly questions
Media personality Sizwe Dhlomo has expressed his feelings surrounding people in pursuit of land with no plans on what they’re going to do with it.
Sizwe has seen this craze about people acquiring land, however, he feels it’s rather silly if these people don’t have sustainable and profitable plans for the land they’re after.
Briefly.co.za Sizwe weighed in on the land debate, making his opinion on the situation pretty clear – if you don’t have plans you don’t deserve the land.
Taking to social media, Sizwe proudly shared some pictures of his sustainable and profitable land. He clearly had plans.
Sizwe has a farm in KwaZulu-Natal on which he grows eucalyptus trees. In his post, Sizwe explained how he had been getting down and dirty all week long, harvesting around 150 tons of eucalyptus Smithii leaves.
“We're replanting another 83 hectares of timber clones after this,” he wrote in the caption of the now-deleted tweet.
The outburst stemmed from a question that was asked by one of his followers regarding funding and land. Sizwe snapped hard at the question, telling the social media to do some research before he approaches anyone regarding funding because ain’t nobody going to give you money for land that you have no plans for.
“Do your research, nothing just lands in your lap. Who is going to fund a person who doesn't even know what they want to do or why they want to do it? What do I know about land?”
The social media rightfully took offence to Sizwe’s rather rash response and clapped back.
“What do I know about your land? ... Not every soil is the same, so what your crop will be determined by the type of soil you have [if farming].”
Sizwe did not back down, he fired back even harder. Shame, he clearly feels some type of way about this land drama.
“That's not direction. Direction is, 'I'm thinking of doing this but I'm having difficulty with that part, how do I go about it?' Not, 'What should I do from scratch?' The problem is cats can't tell the difference.”
Note to self, don’t ask Sizwe ambiguous questions.
