Pompeo hits out at SA land expropriation without compensation

The United States Secretary of State's remarks that land expropriation without compensation would be disastrous for the South African economy are just the latest comments from the US Government casting aspersions on the process.
Addressing Ethiopian business leaders in Addis Ababa, Mike Pompeo, criticized centralized planning in economies pointing to failures in Zimbabwe and Tanzania among others before turning his attention to South Africa. This comes despite efforts by Pretoria to explain the process to American stakeholders including a meeting between the country's chief diplomats in 2018, soon after President Donald Trump tweeted about the matter.
