A Boer girl has sent a plea out on Twitter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to investigate the expropriation of land without compensation from white farmers by the South African government.

René Krüger, a young Boer woman who brings attention to the plight of white farmers in South Africa, tweeted out a video to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, saying it was her “Christmas wish” that he “take note” of her video:

This video is with regards to the tweet that President Donald Trump made in August 2018, saying that he asked you to investigate the situation in South Africa. Now, in these festive times, the terrible news reached us that the government wants to make expropriation of land without compensation legal. Along with this dark cloud hanging over me and my people and my country, there are still brutal farm attacks and farm murders taking place each day. It is not commonly known, for the media coverage on this is very, very poor, but that is why I am asking everyone who is watching this video to please share this video, so that it would reach Secretary Pompeo.

The tweet that Krüger referred to was sent out by President Trump last year, and referred to a segment from Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News that looked into the involuntary expropriation without compensation from Boer farmers in South Africa.

Lauren Southern, the Canadian investigative journalist, travelled to South Africa last year, and was one of the first to bring serious attention to what’s happening to the white farmers with her documentary, “Farmlands.” She documented the systematic attacks on the Boer farming population, of which some of the survivors speculated were not completely random. You can watch Farmlands below:
