Bid to resolve Limpopo land dispute

2011-10-17 09:31
Johannesburg - Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Thulas Nxesi will meet the Nhlaneki and Shimange communities outside Giyani, Limpopo, on Monday in a bid to defuse land disputes.

"The meeting is aimed at discussing avenues that could be followed while development continues," rural development spokesperson Motlatsi Lebea said.

The construction of a clinic and tribal office was halted following a court interdict in September after Nhlaneki's tribal leader claimed the land was his and he was never asked for permission.

Lebea said the community was paid R10m compensation by government as part of a land redistribution deal following their successful land claim.

Lebea said Nxesi would meet the affected communities to solve the problem so that construction could continue.

In September, Nxesi met the Ngove and Siyandani communities, also outside Giyani, in an effort to resolve a similar problem.
