SA white fasts to help blacks

A WHITE South African farmer has applied for a Supreme Court injunction to stop his black tenants being evicted.

Roger Roman is currently on a hunger strike in support of the tenants. He owns 11.3ha (28 acres) in the Broederstroom valley, about 20 miles from Johannesburg.

Roman has accused the white-dominated council – which is attempting to get the evictions – of being racist.
