      Amended Act shocking

      TAU SA finds the ratification of the amendments to the Land Restitution
      Act by the National Legislator, irrespective of several institutions and
      parties shocking. It was ratified on Thursday, 27 November 2003, in the
      absence of the President, notwithstanding expectations that ratification
      were to be debated early in 2004.

      The tarnishing of economic trust will probably place South Africa firmly
      on the Zimbabwe road. Presumably, no consideration was given to the food
      security of the country.

      TAU SA plans to oppose the unilateral termination of property rights.

      TAU SA trusts that after discussions with other stakeholders in organised
      agriculture as well as the SAPS [South African Police Service) on 17
      November 2003, President Mbeki will be aware of the implications of
      illegal land invasions and trespassing and that he will accept
      accountability for the economic and security consequences.

      oooOOOooo
