New law to close land tenure loopholes

Dec 23 2010 12:21

Cape Town - Legislation aimed at closing loopholes in land tenure will be published on Friday, the rural development department said on Thursday.

The draft land tenure security bill "heralds a new dawn and hope for a better life for millions of farm dwellers throughout South Africa", the department said.

Many of these people had "fallen victim to arbitrary evictions, perpetual inhuman treatment and denial of basic human rights by some land owners", it said.

The bill sought to address loopholes in two current acts - the Extension of Security of Tenure Act and the Land Reform (Labour Tenants) Act - which were passed to provide security of tenure to persons residing on farms.
