This will not make the locals happy … Chinese get LAND for Rice Production. The ANC government has given 100 Hectares of land to a Chinese company on a long-term rental worth R300 million in the Lydenburg/Bosbokrand area.
Africa Sino Projects will also launch a hotel and sports park near the Kruger National Park.
Agricultural scientists question the rice project as a large amount of water will have to be supplied to produce rice in a dry area of the province.
A second Chinese company (CSEEC) will build the Duma Power Plant on 2 hectares of land while the remaining 380 hectares will be used to erect ‘CHINESE WORKERS HOMES’
Concern has already been expressed that South Africa can now become a dumping ground for Chinese.
China has run out of space that is the reason for their continued interest in Africa since the early 1960’s.There is plenty of good information available on the internet. China has a deep interest in mineral resources and farming, rice been one of them.
Plenty jobs for Chinese Workers. Not a cent will be returned to South Africa from the profits. Same situation in other countries in Africa including Zimbabwe.
