TLU SA is not at all impressed by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s plea to white young people to stay in the country. Up until now, he’s only made election speeches adjusted to fit the audience he is delivering it to.
The young farmers of TLU SA (Jongboere) are calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to take note of the fear and concerns white young people of South Africa are facing.
Pres Ramaphosa – as part of his election drive – called on young, white South Africans to not leave the country. He said he wants this group, with their skills, in the country.
“We hope his words are not just empty election promises,” says Mr Ferdie Landman, chairman of the TLU SA Jongboere. “We want to make it clear that we, as white young people, do feel unwelcome and unsafe in the country.”
“There are various issues which cause us concern and makes us consider greener pastures outside the country,” he explains.
TLU SA created a petition which concerned young people can sign. It will then be sent to Pres Ramaphosa. It contains the main concerns of this group, especially white young farmers:
“We were born here and we love South Africa,” says Mr Landman. “We want to stay Mr Ramaphosa, but pay attention to our fears, concerns and inputs.”
Sign our petition (http://onswilbly.co.za/) and let President Ramaphosa hear your concerns.
