AGRICULTURE NEWS - Legal action running to more than R2 billion that had been instituted against the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development (agriculture department) as a result of poor land reform and land administration processes, was extremely alarming.
This was according to Annette Steyn, DA MP, who said this amount was recently confirmed in a report by the Auditor-General.
“This situation is untenable. South Africa cannot afford to continue on such a course. It is, obviously, a huge stumbling block on the road to sustainable land reform,” she told Farmer’s Weekly.
