Minister clarifies ANC land policy
Author: Fanie Brink
The latest announcements last week by the Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform, mr Gugile Nkwinti, have given more clarity over the future land policy of the ANC. A much lower cap of not more than 5000 hectare will be introduced and much more agricultural land than the original 30% target will be expropriated. The higher target must also be representative of the composition of the population. These announcements have now cleared any doubts about the land policy of the ANC and the fact that land reform, as a purely political objective, will not take future food security and economic growth for the country. The ANC also made it very clear that it will use land reform as far as possible to stay in power and that it is not prepared to consider any other proposals in this regard.
