Commission On Restitution of Land Rights On Land Claims Mobile Offices
Thousands of rural communities reached through restitution mobile offices.
Since the reopening of lodgement of land claims, more than 100 000 households from remote rural communities have been reached through the land claims mobile offices introduced in April 2015 by the Commission on Restitution of Land Rights. As a result of this initiative 27696 land claims were lodged through the mobile lodgement offices alone during the first year of roll-out, bringing hope to many victims of land dispossession across the country.
“The decision to reopen the lodgement of land claims was informed by the fact that many individuals and communities who qualified to lodge land claims did not lodge due to lack of awareness of the programme. We are quite pleased with the progress made so far in reaching people in far flung rural areas through these mobile lodgement offices “, announced Chief Land Claims Commissioner, Nomfundo Ntloko-Gobodo.
