Ketabahle, Ms V to ask the Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform

What motivated his department’s attempt to force the Ndabeni claimants to dissolve the community Trust they had established in favour of registering a Communal Property Association?

Reply:

The Department has not attempted to force Ndabeni claimants to dissolve the community trust, but impressed upon claimants that their needs and aspirations would be optimized much better through a democratic and accountable legal entity like a Communal Property Association than by a Trust where consultations with beneficiaries are not as focussed and or required. Trusts are under the oversight of the Master of the High Court, whereas Communal Property Associations are under the oversight of the Department.

(a) How many land claimant verifications have been done for the Ndabeni land claim, (b) what is the reason for having so many, (c) which companies have been appointed to do the verifications and (d) what amount has the department spent on these claimant verifications?

Reply:

a) The land claimant verification for the Kwandabeni claim was conducted on three occasions in 2012, 2013 and 2015. It has to be noted that the final verification list was to be taken to the community for objection and comments. However, this could not materialize due to conflicts experienced within the Kwandabeni claimant community.

b) The lack of continuity is the reason why there have been many verifications as new Trustees after elections would not continue with the verification that was conducted during the tenure of the erstwhile Trustees.

c) The verification was done internally by the Office of the Regional Land Claims Commissioner.

d) No amount was spent by the Department.

What (a) is the main cause for the lack of progress with the Ndabeni land claim in Cape Town and (b) has his department done to (i) resolve the matter and (ii) ensure that Ndabeni claimants benefit from the settlement of their claim?

Reply:

(a) The main cause of the delays have been two litigation matters before the High Court of South Africa, Western Cape which were brought by the applicants “Trustees Elect Ndabeni” and “Ms Fikiswa Fesi” as a member of the Trust respectively .

(b)(i) The Department has opposed the action brought by the Trustee elect to compel the Master of the High Court to formally appoint them as trustees because of irregular processes leading up to such elections and has supported Ms Fesi in her application to have the sale agreement of restituted land parcels set aside because such agreement had not been resolved in a properly constituted community meeting.

(ii) The Department has ensured that alienation of the restituted land could not be registered at the Deeds Office which would have resulted in gross injustice and substantial prejudice to all Ndabeni claimants and beneficiaries since the intended sale would have been for a third of the actual market value of the said land.

(a) On what date was the last validation done of Unit 2 of farm Papkuilfontein No: 469 JR (deed: T32900/1985) in the Thembisile Hani Local Municipality district in Mpumalanga and (b) what was the property valued at?

Reply:

(a) The farm Papkuilfontein 469 JR was acquired by the then South African Development Trust during 1989 to be incorporated into the former Homeland of KwaNdebele, and is held vide Title Deed No T32900/1985. The farm Papkuilfontein 469 JR (including Unit 2 of the farm Papkuilfontein No: 469 JR has been under the management and control of Government since 1985 until the date of transfer to the claimants. These properties have not been valued since registration in the name of the Republic of South Africa during 1985. As a cost cutting measure the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform’s Mpumalanga Regional Land Claims Commission conducted “comparable sales” to establish the comparable value of the farm in question.

(b) The comparable sale done was with the farm Wolvenkop 192 JR where a valuation report was done in 2012. According to the valuation report done, the price of the farm Wolvenkop was between R4100 to R9000 per hectare at that time. The conclusion of the independent valuer was at R2 970 000.00 for the farm Wolvenkop 192 JR, in extent of 762.2389 hectares of natural grazing. Another farm in the same area of Papkuilfontein 469 JR, where comparable sales value was used, was the farm Waterval 34 JS, where the independent valuer arrived at a value of R2500 to R5000 per hectare. The conclusion of the independent valuer was at R400 000.00 for 137.8533 hectares in extent.

   (f) Expired contracts will not be renewed until an amicable solution has been reached with concerned parties, namely the new owners (Communal Property Associations) and the occupiers.

3. No. Arbitrary evictions cannot be effected in the current constitutional dispensation.

(a) The Department will conduct a land rights enquiry in the next two weeks to determine the rights that any affected party might have. A report on such should therefore be available for consideration on Monday 24th September 2017. Engagements with the aim of resolving the matter will be engaged in as soon as report on land rights is available, taking into consideration such rights and interests of parties affected. Solutions to be explored may include notarial servitude in favour of occupiers, suitable alternative land and or excising of affected portions. Guidance on how such matters should be dealt with has been provided in law namely by the Constitutional Court in the matter of Occupiers of erven 87 & 88 of Berea v Christiaan Frederick De Wet N.O (2017) 18, where the Court found that eviction that lead to homelessness are unlawful, even if agreed to by those who stand to be evicted. There is a duty therefore for the Department to act within the parameters set by law.

(b) Investigation on developments effected whilst on the land will form part of the enquiry.

Profile picture: Esau, Mr S

Esau, Mr S to ask the Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform

(a) What has he found to be the stumbling blocks in addressing land reform in the country, as the relevant legislation does not seem to bring about satisfactory progress in this regard and (b) what steps does his department intend to take to bring about more land reform, as it is one of the issues that needs to be addressed through the process of radical economic transformation?

Reply:

(a) Our biggest challenge remains the answer to the question – Who owns South Africa? We have just concluded Phase Two: Land Audit in terms of land ownership by race, gender and nationality but still face further challenges as a result of the absence of information in respect of institutions, such as trusts, private and public organisations and companies, as well as sectional title holdings. The source of this enduring challenge is incoherent institutional transformation, both within and external to the DRDLR, for example:

  • the absence of a dynamic, interactive relationship between the National Geomatics Management Services (NGMS) and the Deeds Registration system even though the former feeds into the latter; and,
  • we have projectised the land claims process. This was a strategic error, which did not take into account fiscal constraints, complexities associated with verification/validation of claims, court challenges and internal capacity constraints.

A further challenge relates to water rights being allocated to individuals, not to the land. When an individual sells the land, he/she leaves with the water rights. Furthermore, subdivisions and changes of land use are happening at a rapid pace. An audit needs to be conducted in respect of both these issues, because they impact negatively on land reform farms. Although regulated by laws, compliance with and enforcement of such legislation needs to be strengthened

(b) The steps the Department is proposing, aligned with radical economic transformation, includes transforming the Land Claims Commission into a Chapter 9 Institution and the NGMS, Deeds Registries and Office of the Valuer-General will be listed as Schedule 2 entities in terms of the Public Finance Management Act, 1999.

DRDLR is also implementing the following measures in its efforts to enhance land reform:

  • Introduction of the Regulation of Agricultural Landholdings Bill to Parliament which aims to obtain and access agricultural land as well as to incentivise “national economy responsibility” from farm-land owners, agro-business and primary agriculture magnates and their links to secondary, tertiary international business dimensions and partners. The Land Commission provided for in the Regulation of Agricultural Land Bill, will enforce disclosure of ownership of land and landed property.
  • The Agri-Parks programme which aims at transforming the rural economy. It seeks to improve production by small holder farmers, access to markets, finance and research and engagement in the whole agriculture value chain. It is designed to promote cooperative efforts between government, private sector, and rural communities.
  • The 1 Household 1 Hectare Programme and 1 Household 2 Dairy Cows Programme is intended to improve production and food security at household level to contribute to the increase in the number of small holder farmers.
  • Strenghtening of relative rights of people working the land (50/50) seeks to secure the land rights and residential tenure of the farm-dweller/worker; empower people working the land to acquire majority equity-holdings in farming enterprises and bring about economic transformation of the agricultural sector. It enables farm workers/farm dwellers to sell labour-power across the fence, without fear of eviction; strengthen farmworkers’ bargaining power in advancing worker rights and improving his/her conditions of living; and, address socio-economic livelihood challenges faced by farm dwellers/workers and labour tenants. It will further address land hunger, extreme land concentration, associated poverty and inequity by fostering asset and enterprise equity that introduce fundamental changes to land relations and factors of production.

Reply:

1. On 02 September 2002, the then Department of Land Affairs (DLA) appointed Mr J Benade as a Commissioner for designation of Farms No. 466 and 467 and Portion 1 of Farm No. 469 known as Thornham and currently registered in favour of HW Botha and others. On 29 November 2002 and 7 November 2003, Mr Benade advertised in a Jeffrey’s Bay newspaper (“Our Times”) calling for people who claimed to have an associated land right to make a submission to him in accordance with section 6(1) the Land Titles Adjustment Act, 1993 (Act No. 111 of 1993). In accordance with the above-mentioned section of the Act, the adverts gave a period of two months for people to register their claims.

On 23 July 2004 Mr Benade provided a written statement to the DLA as to whom the property should be registered. The statement declared that the property should be registered in the name of the Thornham Communal Property Association [CPA]. The CPA members would be comprised of those people Mr Benade had verified as landowners. The Thornham CPA was therefore registered on 13 November 2002 (Registration Number CPA/ 00/0487/A). Paragraph 6.1 of the CPA constitution limits the membership primarily to the descendants of the Cunningham and Thorn Families.

On 18 November 2004, Mr Benade passed away. The Department at the time assumed that the late Mr Benade had completed his responsibilities to the Department and claimants as he has made his transfer recommendations to the State Attorney.

In 2006, Mr Dennis Botha of the Thornham Property Owners Association approached the Department with an appeal against the allocation of a title deed to the Thornham Communal Property Association. Mr Botha claimed that the CPA formulation process was flawed and that CPA membership and ownership of the identified property was thus disputed. The Thornham Property Association is represented by Bennett Attorneys and Mr Bennett requested that an alternative Commissioner be appointed in terms of section 3(4) of the Land Titles Adjustment Act, 1993 which provides that another Title Adjustment Commissioner may be appointed if a Commissioner is unable to perform his/her duties.

The challenge in the Thornham case is that the formal function of the appointed Commissioner was already completed in November 2004 with transfer instructions being made to the State Attorney. Mr Bennett was advised that section 3(4) of the Land Titles Adjustment Act does not apply in this case because the Bennett appeal was submitted in September 2006 almost two years after the allocation of the land was done. The two month comment period as provided for in terms of in section 6(1) and advertised in 2002 and 2003 had long expired.

The Department was required to submit proof of this process to support the argument that Mr Bennett’s appeal is late but unfortunately the Department was unable to find any proof of advertisement in terms of section 7(1) of the Act which calls for the Commissioner to advertise his findings for comment by the larger community and the Commissioner had passed on. This meant that in terms of the Act, an alternative Commissioner would have to be appointed but the findings of the first Commissioner would have to be set aside.

The Thornham Property Association through Mr Bennett, filed papers on 13 December 2007 with the Grahamstown High Court seeking the reversal of the findings of the Title Adjustment Commissioner ie the late Mr Benade. The Department was cited as the second respondent and the papers were served to the State Attorney in Port Elizabeth. The Department did not oppose the application because the CPA had informed the Department of its decision not to oppose the application due to their dissatisfaction with the number of people who were left out of the process and those who were identified as beneficiaries.

The Court issued an order for the Land Title Adjustment process conducted and concluded by the late Mr Benade to be set aside; secondly, that another process to determine beneficiaries be opened afresh; and thirdly the Department should pay the costs. The Department facilitated the appointment of a new Commissioner and it was approved by the Minister on 9 June 2010. The Commissioner (Commissioner Bacela) began to work with the community thereafter and was required, in terms of the contract, to complete her work in two years. During her contract period there was a period when the Commissioner could not discharge her duties due to the fact that she was also appointed as an Acting Judge of the High Court. This contributed immensely to the delay in the finalisation of the facilitation process.

During 2016 the Department engaged the Commissioner on the progress of her work and found it unsatisfactory. The Department decided to terminate the contract with Commissioner Bacela. The Department is in the process of drafting Terms of Reference for the appointment of a new Commissioner.

2. (a) There is no registered Trust in Thornham; Trust beneficiaries of Thornham must still be determined once a Commissioner is appointed.

(b) Falls away; see (2)(a) above.

(c) (i),(ii) Falls away.

(d) Falls away.

(e) The Department is not aware of these allegations.

(f) (i) Falls away.

(ii) The Department is not aware of an interim committee.
