Mme Rosa Mphuthi is a seasoned dairy farmer who has been battling to grow her dairy farm business. She started as a subsistence farmer to an emerging farmer, and now has fading hopes of realizing her dream of being a commercial farmer, which she has been struggling to make into reality for over 10 years.
Mme Mphuthi’s problems started in 2000 when a white farmer, Stefanus Cloete, was placed in the main house of her farm, which is the face of the business. The farm was allocated to 17 beneficiaries of a government farming program. The white farmer sabotaged some of the farmers until they decided to go back to township life and abandon the farm. Three black farmers remained and they were like slaves of the white farmer and surrendered their land to the white settler for his cattle to graze.
