Long waitfor land claimants

19 April 2016, 10:21  - Joyce.Jagaroo

WHEN I read the story of the Howick land claim by Ingrid Oellermann (Witness, Thursday, April 14), I shared the anger and pain of the claimants involved there. My parents were also claimants in the Zenzele land claim near Howick, which began back in the nineties, but they were not compensated despite providing all the needed proof of their claim.

Many people were compensated, including those whose claims were alleged to be fraudulent.

My father died in 2012, still waiting. When I enquired from the land claims commission, I was advised to reinstitute the claim so as to be included in the window that was opened by the president up to 2019. My mother and I did that in October 2014. The last time we heard from the commissioner was when we received acknowledgement of the receipt of the applications. Since then we have never heard from them.

My mother is growing old. Will she also not experience the joy of being compensated for the pain she and her family suffered due to forced removals, like her late husband? How much longer should we wait for justice to be done?
