More land claims made: Nkwinti

2011-12-10 12:01

Johannesburg - Land claimants who missed the lodging period have appealed for financial compensation, Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti said on Friday.

However, he told them it was impossible for the government to legally "entertain their demands", his office said in a statement.

Nkwinti met the claimants in Uitenhage, in the Eastern Cape, on Friday, as part of the land reform green paper consultations. The submission period has been extended until the end of December.

The claimants had missed the claims lodging period between 1995 and 1998.

"Most of the claimants said they had previously worked on the surrounding farms and had been forcibly removed their land and residential areas," Nkwinti's spokesperson Mtobeli Mxotwa said in a statement.

They would have to make submissions to the department’s land reform green paper consultation unit asking for land claims to be reopened and for the Restitution Act and the Constitution to be amended.

    If you missed the deadline, tough. And it's not as though you missed it by a day or a week, or even a year. However, given the government's supposed concerns about the slow speed of "land reform", I wonder if this little event has simply been "manufactured" by our comrades at the top so that an avenue for further land claims may be written into law...

    Minister please help the people to be compensated for what was taken from them by the apartheid criminals.

      Oxygen Thief. Go cry me a river.......maaifoedies

      Slightly hypocritical when your forefathers arrived from the Congo and helped themselves to the land of the San.

      Waldemar - 2011-12-10 12:46

      Since the 1960s, when the Congo expelled the Belgians this has been a mirror of African regression, moving steadily southwards until the example of Zimbabwe . Once a prosperous, well educated exporter of food the population now eat rats to survive. Will SA go the same way?

      ignorant anc troll

      Arthur - 2011-12-10 13:02

      It seems everything is Apartheid's fault. You probably blame apartheid for the high corruption rate in our ANC government as well.

      Kate - 2011-12-10 13:07

      But of course Arthur. It is always our fault. They never take accountability or responsibility for their F... ups

      Ruppersberg - 2011-12-10 13:58

      Azande. You are a racist and have made it very clear that you hate white people. I have read nearly all your comments on News24 (thanks to Facebook) and realised that you are one weird attention seeking loser with nothing better to do than insult people wherever you can. You probably have no friends, life in a dirty shack and still blame apartheid for your miserable life. You thrive on confrontation and act like a child when confronted. You are an internet troll and deserve to be totally ignored. I for one will not respond to any of your comments from this moment on... Now get off your madams PC before she catches and fires you. Garden boy jobs are hard to find...

      Penny-wise - 2011-12-10 14:13

      Minister please conpensate the 'original' land owners if that's our argument now, the Khoi San peoples, who had their land taken away from them by the black tribes who migrated south from central Africa. In fact all those blacks were the first ones to colonise these lands. Please compensate Mr Minister?

      The-Azanian - 2011-12-10 15:20

      Dont worry azande...white people will never change a bit, this white population of ours combined ANC ignorance r makin sure that no african crosses the poverty line coz of their influence on media.

      Garth - 2011-12-10 16:11

      ` . . . governed by blacks . . .', oh, so there are no white, indian or coloured members of the ignorant anc government? Ignorant sod. My previous comment was deleted because you anc ignorants cannot take criticism. `. . . otherwise shut up . . .', useless, just like your politicians. Once you and your ilk get the land, what are you going to do with it? Use it to sit on whilst you hold out your begging bowl for more white money. Useless!

      Azande - 2011-12-10 16:37

      @garth, yes governed by blacks "the majority". whatever we do about our land is our own business, just give us breathing space please and mind your own.

      Ruppersberg - 2011-12-10 16:48

      Garth. Just ignore Azande. He's a racist internet troll that thrives on attention from direct replies to his senseless puke. No use debating with this uneducated and brainwashed moron.

      Garth - 2011-12-10 17:19

      Thanks mate, but I rather enjoy seeing him make an a$$ of himself with his ignorance. His brain is so small that if a hungry cannibal chopped his head open, he wouldn't find enough to cover a small water biscuit.

      marc.addler - 2011-12-10 17:52

      Azande is also The-Azanian. One sick person with 2 profiles. He's an old Troll with many different aliases. He's a sick racist that hides behind false persona's.

      Kevin - 2011-12-11 05:49

      The apartheid criminals you refer to are good honest upstanding heroes who saved Africa by bringing every single thing you see and touch. We keep 50 % of Africans alive with billions of rand's of anti retro viral's every year. We even brought you a soccer ball which you cannot use properly.These heroes paid good money for there land and should be compensated at 10 times the going rate when some liar claims the land. VIVA THE GREAT HEROES WHO SAVED AFRICA. VIVA THE GREAT HEROES WHO SUPPLY ANTI RETRO VIRALS TO KEEP THE NATION ALIVE . Now oxygen thief say sorry

  • Johan Grobbelaar - 2011-12-10 12:58

    Go to DRC and claim there. Ur forefathers were forcibly removed there 2. So pls leave now.

      Azande - 2011-12-10 15:47

      we dont need to show deeds Albert, cant u get it. if u are black, u inherit ownership in this land. - 2012-01-25 12:56

      yes azande to just inherit so you can tear it thorugh your useless beging black ass does the world or your own people no good.. why dont u go and read the history books of the world and see who it was who really stole the land in SA after they had pulled the fertile and prosperous lands to the north through their asses just like they are still doing today hundreds of years later.. i guess u must be realy proud of being a black african, the laughing stock of the world.. what u dont seem to understand is that even if all whites left africa your race would still be just what they have always been.. useless corrupt thieves who prey on the weak and poor.. and happy t sit unde or swing from their trees while the world is asked ot fill their beggng bowl.. go figure it out.. black pride eh.. HAHAHHAAHH

  • eddiebant - 2011-12-10 14:09

    And more will come,and more,and more.

  • Wesley - 2011-12-10 14:11

    If land is so important to them, I think 17 years is long enough to register a claim.

      Penny-wise - 2011-12-10 14:19

      You would think, hey? They're so useless it takes them 17 years to realise their claim deadlines have passed. Eish e-useleeeeeeeeeeeess !!!

      Azande - 2011-12-10 15:50

      whether it is 17 years or 17 days. they will be accomodated. so swallow yo bitterness and frustration. Just back off, its not your responsibility.

  • Penny-wise - 2011-12-10 14:18

    Everytime we hear these rumours coming from the ANC about 'ammending the constitution', I get a little anxious. This tyrranical ANC regime is looking more communist every day. I wonder when the 'West' will start listing them as a terrorist/communist organisation again? PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY PEOPLE OF SA !!! We fought hard for it, don't give it up to this new and corrupt ANC regime without a fight !!! Madiba fought hard to help usher in democracy in South Africa. He must be so ashamed of these consitution 'ammenders' who want to destabilise SA even more.

      Azande - 2011-12-10 15:52

      penny, you fought hard for the democracy??? HOW?

      Garth - 2011-12-10 17:22

      Ass-end: how old are you anyway, cupcake?

  • Zion - 2011-12-10 14:29

    From 1998 to 2011 is 13years. So it is rather convenient to tell a lie of what happened 13 years ago because few are around to oppose that lie. But give them the land because it will be bought back by the farmer when the occupants are hungry

      Zion - 2011-12-10 14:32

      Or give them the money then they will be hungry earlier.

      Azande - 2011-12-10 16:13

      Zion, are u commenting on your own comment? that smart of u.

      Zion - 2011-12-10 22:36

      Azande, No just a forgotten line.

      He probably is your brother too, you one-mother-many-fathers.

      marc.addler - 2011-12-10 17:46

      The-Azanian. You are also Azande, the same person with 2 profiles. How sick must you be to create 2 profiles that comments on each others comments? What do you call that sickness where people talk to themselves again??... You are one sick puppy...

  • tobydt - 2011-12-10 15:25

    Had a case where a farmer had ONE family living on the farm (workers). 5 years later, suddenly there was 30-40 families living on the land. The people claimed they have been living there for more than 50 years. Google maps and historic satt. images were used as proof in court that the people were only living there recently. Their case was thrown out. A stack of land claimants are frauds, merely trying to make a quick score on the virtue of their skin colour.

  • Enlightened - 2011-12-10 19:19

    Azande, you're a very wise person. Your statement speaks for itself. Have you perhaps got some suggestion to make this upcoming landgrab profitable or are you going to advocate that the "peepol" demand that white people be forced work it for them?

  • Enlightened - 2011-12-10 19:26

    Azande in his infinite wisdom sais:We don't need to show deeds. If you are black, you ingherit ownershio in this land!! Thank you. I have wondered for many years why agriculture, healthcare, education, technology, economy, generalInfrastructure simply fail cataclismically in this continernt. You Wise man have just answered my question.It is not like you inherited nothing, Black africans have taken over well structured economies in every country you have taken over. Look at it now. I give you thanks. I now have my answer from the horses mouth.
