New land claims process: Meeting to be held

Johannesburg - A meeting will be held on Tuesday to discuss the reopening of the land claims process, the National Land Claims Forum (NLCF) said on Sunday.

"The NLCF has called a stakeholder meeting and invited the department of rural development to discuss the reopening of the land claims act allowing claimants who did not make the December 1998 deadline to lodge their claims," said President Mosupye Tshwene.

He said the aim of the meeting was to follow up on discussions with Minister Gugile Nkwinti's office relating to affidavits that had been delivered to the department over a year ago.

"[We] will seek to secure concrete answers on the way forward on this critical matter which continues to keep the development and emancipation of Black South Africans on hold," said Tshwene.

The meeting which would be attended by the deputy commissioner on land claims, would take place on Tuesday at the Atteridgeville community hall in Pretoria.
