The Promised Land

African countries are considering several options necessary to boost productivity in the agricultural sector. One such option, and by far the most popular and controversial, is to lure young South Australian farmers to Africa by offering them free land and tax-free farming.

The promised land is good news to those who would like to have their own farm, as confidence on the land hits a new low because of the drought.

The Kenyan High Commissioner to Australia, His Excellency John Lepi Lanyansunya is presently wooing farmers with the right credentials; those with experience in the farm-business sector, who can bring machinery, capital, and technical skills to Kenya.

And the African Chamber of Commerce (AFRICOM) in South Australia is offering more information to interested parties on the African free-farms proposal.
