Cap land ownership - ANC

Jan 28 2015 16:50

Johannesburg - The ANC has called for a limit on land ownership, secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Wednesday.

"Lekgotla has resolved that there should be a ceiling on land ownership of a maximum 12 000 hectares or two farms for both natural and all forms of legal persons," he told reporters in Johannesburg.

"Land ownership by foreign nationals will also be prohibited."

However, they would be able to access land through leaseholds.

The party also wanted a compulsory declaration of land holdings.

Mantashe was briefing media following a three-day national executive committee meeting dubbed a lekgotla in Pretoria this week.

The African National Congress (ANC) called on more decisive and interventionist leadership from government on land redistribution.

"Government is expected to elaborate on the 50/50 policy framework," Mantashe said.

He called on people to support initiatives such as where a portion of farm land is given to farm workers.
