Lol this guy says they're falling "due to communism" but it's really falling due to the fact owning a farm and being white can get you killed in South Africa. I imagine that affects the demand for farmland in the country, which in turn affects the price.

I guess you can attribute that to "communism" but it seems more of an effect of race-based authoritarianism

Seems more like racists than commies. Do you have a link?

the tripartite alliance: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_National_Congress#Tripartite_Alliance

they are all commies

and the guerilla arm: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMkhonto_we_Sizwe

of which jacob zuma is also a prominent member

but racism is used as well as a catch all 'ideology' for the bantus that are not into communism for sure

The ANC is democratic socialist, not communist, by the looks of it. But the other two definitely are communist. Interesting, thanks for the additional info.
