Pan-Africanist Congress (PAC) Deputy President Mzwanele Nyhontso says land expropriation without compensation is a small price to pay for people who took the land from the indigenous people of South Africa.

Ntyhontso has reiterated that under PAC rule land will be repossessed and given back to the people.

He was speaking in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape where he is on an election campaign trail.

“We want land to be repossessed. We want land to be restored. We want land to be given to the indigenous people of this country. The land is a gift – a God given gift, given to the Africans. It is our land. It was stolen from us and the land thieves are still there, and land remains a stolen property and if it is stolen it must be returned to us. We are going to return it. We do not care about the investors. We do not care about anything. We must be given a right to manage and mismanage our affairs.”

Meanwhile, Malungelo Nohentshana, a taxi owner operating in Mthatha, says he will vote for the PAC.

“Government is responsible for taxi violence because the government is unable to work with the taxi industry people. Taxi industry is the only black-owned business sector, but this government is only focussing on the white-owned businesses that we cannot access easily. If PAC can come to us and meet us, it will understand that one mini taxi provides food for more than twenty people. We are hopeful that the PAC will be given a chance so that they can implement their policies.”
