Katie Hopkins in South Africa: Farm security comes at a high price

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

This farm, situated in the Eastern part of South Africa, more closely resembles a super-max prison. Yet that is the cost required to keep these farms, and the people who tend the land, safe.

Farmers have spent millions of dollars cordoning off their land with vast stretches of razor-wire fencing.

The irony is that they’re not growing any illicit substances here, but macadamias, bananas and other produce.

This is level of security South Africa’s farmers need to deliver food security to an entire nation.

PS: The mainstream media won't tell you these stories. Please help me continue this important investigation and work in South Africa.

Is the fence electrified? It didn’t appear to be. A bolt cutter can be used to break through and even with an electrified fence, if they really want to get in they can just smash an unmanned vehicle through the fence. Get out while you still can, leave nothing behind, burn it all. Living in a fortress with the threat of attack is not living.

What’s to stop them just cutting a hole in the fence?
I really hope people are chipping in whatever they can no matter how small. Every little bit is going to help.

Anybody here old enough to remember that old Movie ‘The Planters Wife’, That fencing reminds me of the Movie.

I would poison the land and leave.
