‘Land caps are vital for equitable redistribution’
Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Gugile Nkwinti says land ceilings are necessary for equitable land redistribution in South Africa.
Nkwinti was speaking at a consultative meeting with agriculture groups at St George Hotel in Pretoria last week.
The minister met with agricultural sector representatives as part of efforts to address concerns they raised following the delivery of the 2015-16 budget and policy speech of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform earlier this month.
