Cebekhulu, Inkosi RN to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development
Whether she has provided farmers who are leasing state-owned land with assurance that their leases will be renewed; if not, why not; if so, what mechanisms has she put to prevent arbitrary refusal to renew such leases?
Yes. According to the provisions of the State land Lease and Disposal Policy as well as the Lease Contract, a lessee is eligible for a renewal of the lease agreement on state-owned land.
