Headed by President Cyril Ramaphosa, the ruling South African ANC party is planning to amend the constitution as a means to take away land from the country’s remaining white farmers without compensation, according to RT.

The proposed amendment will have to go through parliament to succeed.

The white minority that makes up around 9% of South Africa’s population sees this move by the government as a forceful expulsion from the country and further ramping up of hostility against them.
