Give black farmers title deeds - department

May 19 2017 06:02

Johannesburg – Title deeds should be given to black commercial farmers, according to the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ director general Mike Mlengana.

He was speaking at the launch of the Nation in Conversation at Nampo Harvest Day in Klerksdorp, on Tuesday, reported News24.

“It makes sense to hand over the title deeds to the guys who are successful so that they can look at the enterprise with responsible eyes. The absence of the title deeds has put a lot of pressure on the recapitalisation of these farms,” said Mlengana, who was speaking to journalists on the sidelines.
