White landowners urged to share
White landowners have been warned to start talks about sharing their land before it’s too late. The ANC chairperson of Parliament’s land and environmental affairs select committee Peter Moatshe warned in the National Council of Provinces on Friday that people who yearn for land are running out of patience. He questioned the pace of land reform and said land owners were unwilling to comply with the Freedom Charter, that states that all South Africans will share the land. Moatshe said land reform would have to be speeded up if government wanted to achieve a 30 percent distribution of land to previously disadvantaged people by 2015.
