Settle land claims urgently

2017-08-24 06:01

There’s always adoring content regarding South Africa, including the African unity we have here.

We have Angolans, Somalis, Nigerians and Zimbabweans here.

Our backyards are the embodiment of the proverbial ‘African villages’ and for me, this is foundation we were dreaming about all these years.

But recently, the main focus around here is the land claims saga, as it is right to demand land that was taken away through apartheid legislation.

It is so useless for us black citizens to claim lands around our country, while we still have under developed swathes of land in our townships.

Two decades after liberation, township residents still live in squalor.

We live in one of the sickest environments ever.

Even as the apartheid regime built us low cost houses with no tar on our roads with no kerbs, thus putting us in danger of being hit by cars.

Our government needs to fast track the land claims, and also upgrade infrastructure in the townships.

Our government needs to prove to the nation that they really have land management first, for posterity.
