- The community receiving the land are direct descendants of the indigenous Khoi peoples who were unable to purchase the land due to past racial laws
Cyril Ramphosa will be handing over title deeds this weekend in one of South Africa’s biggest land claim cases.
The president of SA will be conducting the handing over ceremony in Ebenaeser, Beeswater, where households will be receiving 3990 hectares of commercial farmland.
The beneficiaries are directly descended from the indigenous Khoi peoples of the area.
The South African Government have committed to the finalising of land claims under the theme “Restoring dignity through land reform.”
The community members receiving the land established themselves on the farmlands in 1926 but were unable to purchase the land due to past racial land laws, the South African Government reported.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the Beeswater Communal Property Association want to resuscitate agricultural and livestock farming in the area, as well as reconnect with their cultural roots linked to the land.
This is one of the biggest successful land claims in South Africa to date, with more than 50 households in Ebenaeser receiving title deeds to land.
