Its very clever, actually.  Farmers sell at whatever price the government offers.  Farms are transferred to new farmers.  New farmers sell it back to the original farmer.  New farmer has made a profit for nothing and previous farmer gets his farm back (probably at a lower price than what he sold it for.).  Everyone happy...

Until
Juli-ass Malema comes in and declares ALL colonialist, racist, white-agent owned land is up from grabs (not limited to farms).  So farmer and home owner alike get displaced and get sweet nothing for their hard earned assets anyway.

yup,  the cycle continues
1907,  Britain decides that only those of European decent will own land.
Missionaries buy up land, because with the land comes immediate followers.
Missionary dies,  his land falls onto those who could not own it before,  who sells it to farmers, because it has a value now.
The land is bought by the government to give to those who lived there before.
The land is sold to the farmers again because the government paid for it,  so selling it for R10 is more than what they paid for it.

The farmer probably paid less for it than he sold it for.  Mooi man.

Its just funny hey.
