ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), has expressed his full support to the President of the Republic of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, for his decision to redistribute land to Black South Africans.
President Ramaphosa stated, “The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate the redistribution of land to black South Africans.”
In response to this statement, Rael commented: ”He is absolutely right! What was stolen by armed colonizers must be returned to Africa’s native people without any compensation.”
Rael went even further and declared: “The wealth of these white families should be seized as a compensation for centuries of pillages!”
In 2011, Rael expressed a similar support to Zimbabwe President, Mugabe, who initiated “the indigenization and empowerment policy and programs to ensure that resources are managed, controlled and exploited by Zimbabwe and that they benefit the majority of the people.”
At the time, Rael encouraged all African countries to do the same. “Africa belongs to Africans, not to ex-colonizers who continue their colonialist behavior under the guise of powerful multinational conglomerates,” he said.
Rael not only wishes African countries to take control of their lands, but he also encourages them to achieve a true independence by “rejecting all foreign structures that have been imposed on Africans by force, whether political, religious or cultural.”
He added then, “Africa must belong to the Africans, in particular the resources that continue to be plundered by the former colonial powers. Africa to Africans!!”
