Restitution High Drive

Introduction
INTRODUCTION

  • The President in his State of the Nation Address on 11 February 2005 gave a directive that additional resources would be allocated over the next three years to cover outstanding claims in the land restitution programme.

  • In line with the Presidential directive the Commission is therefore committed to settle all outstanding urban claims in the 2005/06 financial year and all outstanding rural claims by 31 March 2008.

INTRODUCTION

  • The settlement of claims would be part of the process to reach the delivery of the 30% target of agricultural land by 2015 and thus ensuring not only the attainability of economical stability and poverty eradication but also the socio-political stability in rural areas.

  • The Minister of Finance has in his Budget speech of 23 February 2005 announced that R6 billion has been allocated to complete the land restitution process.

Overview
OVERVIEW

  • Over the past five years our experience curve shows that the reasons for success are due to:

    • The Section 42D Ministerial approval.

    • Integration of the CRLR with the DLA.

    • Grouping of individual urban claims.

    • Use of Service Providers for specific tasks.

    • Location of RLCC offices closer to the people.

    • Increased resources.

    • Highly motivated employees

    • 80% of claims are urban claim thus faster to resolve.

Words of women at a women's Resource Access Programme (RAP) workshop in India - Land is might, land is right Land is water, land is shelter Land is dignity, land is honour Land is our mother, let us promise each other That it will not be for barter, Let us unite to save it from exploiters. Women need forests; women need water, Access to education and to power, Freedom from bondageFreedom from hunger, Let us bring them "the honour"Land to women is actually revolution, As it saves children from malnutrition And it makes families function.
