Government to Conduct Pre-Colonial Land Audit
Rural Development and Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti says government will conduct a colonial land audit to transform the historic patterns of ownership, use and occupation.
The Minister said this when he participated in day one of the debate on the State of the Nation Address at the National Assembly on Tuesday.
He said this after President Jacob Zuma said during his State of the Nation Address that government would use several levers of the state to implement radical economic transformation.
“Once the audit has been completed, a single law should be developed to address the issue of land restitution without compensation.
“The necessary constitutional amendments should be undertaken to effect this process,” he said.
