Matiase, Mr NS to ask the MINISTER OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT AND LAND REFORM
(a) What number of hectares of land has been sold by her department to developers in the past 25 years, (b) who was the developer in each case, (c) what was the size of the land that was sold, (d) where is the land located and (e) at what cost was each piece of land sold?
The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform does not keep its data on disposals in the manner that would enable it to immediately identify the nature of the person to whom the land was transferred, as required by the question. Information on all land parcels that were disposed by the Department in the past 25 years is available. However, the Department is unable to immediately distinguish whether the new owner is/was a developer. Every possible attempt has been made to achieve this. However, it is just not possible within the available time limits for this response to be submitted.
