Lulu Xings a dif­fer­ent tune

Finweek English Edition - - The main stories this week -

WHAT HAP­PENED| THE ME­DIA HAVE been re­port­ing reg­u­larly since Septem­ber last year about the ef­forts of the agri­cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions Agri SA and TAU SA to ar­range a meet­ing with Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Lulu Xing­wana to re­solve cer­tain prob­lems. Then, at last, the meet­ing was held last week and Xing­wana ad­mit­ted that there were “also good farm­ers in the coun­try”.

WHAT THE OTH­ERS SAID RAP­PORT says that Xing­wana’s re­cent state­ment that Agri SA and TAU SA do not re­gard her and the ANC Gov­ern­ment as be­ing prop­erly elected in­di­cates a “se­ri­ous de­par­ture from the truth”. “What on earth would mo­ti­vate her to say such a stupid thing?” “Not even the most con­ser­va­tive farm­ers in the coun­try have ever said any­thing like that in pub­lic.”
