Land reform is a political imperative. Unfortunately, the state's report card to date leaves much to be desired, says Busi Mavuso.

The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed a number of our country's vulnerabilities, particularly our inequities. Since the dawn of democracy, at the centre of the state's attempts to reduce inequality has been the restitution of land to individuals and communities who lost their homes and land due to forced removals during apartheid. It's a political imperative and if done well, academics point to its potential to begin to solve the inequality question.
