US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says plans to expropriate land without compensation would be a disaster for South Africa’s economy and the people. Speaking in Addis Ababa, Pompeo said the policy proposal is an example of centralised planning that’s failed in other countries such as Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Ethiopia.
