Johannesburg - Minister for Rural Development and Land Reform Gugile Nkwinti has extended the land tenure security bill consultation period to March 18. The original deadline was February 22.

The minister accepted the request for the extension of the consultation period after receiving requests from various stakeholders such as nongovernmental organisations, farmer organisations and the general public.

The extension of these consultations is to ensure that as many stakeholders as possible have an opportunity to offer inputs into this important bill, the department said.

The bill, which was gazetted on December 24 2010, aims to promote and protect the relative rights of persons working on farms, persons residing on farms and farm owners.

It also seeks to enhance the security of tenure of persons residing on farms, to create conditions conducive to peaceful and harmonious relationships on farms and in farming communities, and to sustain production discipline on land in the interest of food security.

Several provinces have already undertaken the consultations process after the bill was gazetted in December, and the extension will provide an additional opportunity for more consultations as well as for stakeholders who would still like to submit their comments.
