Must Watch: The truth about Land Reform from the mouths of politicians!

Unless you have a dream that you want to go to jail, then land grabbing should not even be in your vocabulary!


Trevor Noah, host of the Daily Show, was “forced” to send a field reporter to investigate Land Reform after Donald Trump tweeted about it.

The South African field reporter and comedian – Loyiso Madinga – was selected by Trevor Noah earlier this year to join The Daily Show cast. Since then he has executed many field reports but his Land Reform video has been trending since it was uploaded for it’s honesty and the way questions were handled.

Madinga may be small in stature but he’s definitely not short on jokes.

This rural raised boy has quickly risen to being a certified international comic. Having started in 2012 when spent a week at the Teatro where he shared the stage with international acts like Tom Segura Loyiso’s career was on the fast track.

Since then, he quickly became a regular on David Kau’s Blacks Only line up. He then travelled the country on Trevor Noah’s Nationwild tour and represented SA at the Montreux Comedy Festival, Switzerland, and Busan Comedy Festival, Korea. His debut one man show, Born Free-ish, was a four night, sold out success.

The new video starts off by showcasing how only half the message is heard… when the field reporter can’t focus on anything else, except the one word. He then visits the ANC, DA and a farmer who’s land was reformed to investigate what this word means in a hilarious but incredibly informative way.

The video has been shared thousands of times online with South Africans loving how the facts have been laid out in such a humours way.

Lynden Cotterell posted: “Awesome video! That’s the most factual thing I’ve seen on land reform, sadly. Love, love, love!”

Philani Dlamini commented: “It fun how the land reform is just a debate here in SA yet it’s like a war on papers. Not one policy is in place about it just a debate of what the best alternative to reverse injustice of the past.”

Willem Le Roux added: “Australians are panicking even more. Been here for like a week and they keep asking if we ran away from the “barbaric blacks” And I was like “no we’re here to get into 2019 faster than pretty much everyone on earth then January 7 we’re outa here” 

Ayanda Dalingozi said: “Had a good chuckle while watching this!”
