Richtersveld bid postponed

2010-06-25 14:24
Kimberley - A bid to have the Richtersveld community's farming operations placed under judicial management was postponed in the Northern Cape High Court in Kimberley on Friday.

The application was launched earlier this month by the Richtersveld Investment Holding Company (RIHC), which said its agricultural subsidiary was some R21m in the red.

Attorneys said Judge Cecile Williams postponed the case to August 12 by agreement, after other parties sought leave to intervene.

Earlier this month, the Northern Cape High Court dismissed a similar application by a firm of consultants which claimed the operations were being mismanaged.

Several farms on the southern bank of the Gariep River, plus a mariculture facility, an abattoir and a dairy were handed over to the community as part of a massive land claim settlement in 2007.

The farms previously belonged to state-owned diamond mining company Alexkor.

The application for intervention in Friday's matter was filed by eight Richtersvelders who last year launched a court challenge to meetings called by the Richtersveld Sida !Hub Communal Property Association, which says it represents the majority of the community.
