Johan Steenkamp who co-owns a £10million hunting farm in Limpopo province, has been ordered to hand over his land, following a ten-year battle to stop the government buying it for a tenth of its value.
Mr Steenkamp says Prime Minister Cyril Ramaphosa's plans of redistribution of white-owned land to South Africa's black poor is just a cover so that the government can get their hands on valuable coal deposits found under his farm land.
The 67-year-old farmer said he is ready to defend his property by force if the government tries to take his land, saying; 'If it comes to a fight so be it, I am not going to leave the country and I am not going to leave my farm.'
Mr Ramaphosa is trying to accelerate land reform to 'undo a grave historical injustice' against the black majority during colonialism and the apartheid era that ended in 1994.
Since the end of apartheid, the ANC party has followed a 'willing-seller, willing-buyer' model under which the government buys white-owned farms for redistribution to blacks.
However, Mr Ramaphosa now has announced plans to change the constitution to allow the ANC to take lands from white farmers without compensating them.
