- ANC member Ronald Lamola stated that tribal land will also be given to farmers during the land reform process
- This comes after President Ramaphosa made it clear that tribal land won't be targeted for expropriation
- Lamola said giving title deeds to farmers will also prevent chiefs from evicting them from the land
President Ramaphosa assured tribal leaders that their land will not be expropriated during SA's land reform.
But according to a member of the ANC's governing body, tribal land will indeed be targeted for land reform.
Ronald Lamola stated recently that title deeds will be given to small-scale farmers that live on tribal land.
This statement is sure to anger a number of tribal leaders.
However, Lamola said the whole country will be considered for land reform. He added that this would solve the problem of people living on tribal land being evicted by chiefs as it suited them.
EWN reported that Lamola also mentioned a 'redistribution bill' that the Department of Rural Development is working on but he did not give any details about the plans.
President Ramaphosa appointed an advisory panel on land reform. It is hoped this panel will make matters on expropriation more transparent.
