JOHANNESBURG - NAMPA/AFP
South Africa's agriculture minister yesterday advocated the expropriation of white farmers, arguing that the ruling party's land reform had failed 18 years on from the end of apartheid.
The African National Congress wants to use its right to seize land, with compensation, ending a policy of only buying land from willing sellers it argues has been costly and too slow at correcting one of apartheid's worst ills.
"The content for us on land reform is absolutely clear: the willing buyer-willing seller principle of land reform must go," Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson told the SAFM State-owned radio.

MOSCOW - NAMPA/AFP
Russia says it backed a political transition in Syria but rejected Western pressure to call for the exit of President Bashar al-Assad ahead of international talks on ending the spiralling conflict.
Russia Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov poured cold water on hopes that world powers have already agreed a common strategy ahead of the weekend talks in Geneva, saying Moscow was opposed to any solution imposed from abroad.
He also said it was a mistake to exclude Syria's ally Iran from Saturday's meeting of world and regional powers.

WINDHOEK - ELLANIE SMIT
Factors beyond Meatco’s control had a significant impact on the performance of the Corporation during the 2011/12 financial year.
The reallocation of the Namibian component of the Norway duty free quota as well as the impact of the implementation of the 90/40 day residency rule collectively reduced the revenue of the Corporation by about 47,9 million.
The reduced revenue from the Norwegian market due to an endorsement of a 50:50 allocation of the Namibian quota between Meatco and Witvlei Meat, reduced Meatco’s earnings by N$35,5 million in 2011/12. Read more about Feedback on Meatco annual report

The objective of the Meatco mentorship programme is to educate and train NCA producers on animal health, sustainable farming practices and ox production systems.
Moses Kandjoze, Procurement Officer for the Windhoek and the central region says that mentorship has become central to Meatco’s procurement function. This is especially true when dealing with emerging and communal producers, although the circumstances between the two producer groups may differ.
