Government is dragging its feet in acting to resolve tensions between farmers and the tenant labourers and farm dwellers.

This was the view of KwaZulu-Natal Agricultural Union (Kwanalu) chief executive officer Sandy La Marque on Monday, commenting on their attempts to proactively negotiate with government in this regard.

La Marque was responding to allegations made by uMngeni Mayor Sizwe Sokhela that some “white farmers” were standing in the way of the municipality delivering services such as water and electricity to farm dwellers.
