Quotes

...can often be settled fairly quickly with cash compensation, rural claims involving hundreds of individual claimants can take years to resolve. "processes of acquiring land, planning for people to resettle, and how the land will be used; all of these take enormous amounts of time and expertise and we have a very constrained government institution - the land claims commission - charged with doing all this" commented Ruth Hall, an associate professor with the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) at the University of the Western Cape
"It's not just about making the friendship," Hall said of the lessons Daytripper provides. "its about the opportunity to learn from that person."
..." Ms Hall says the strategy has enabled new patterns of accumulation. "while … framed as part of a radicalisation … it appears to be narrowing and is ripe for elite capture."
Ruth Hall of the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies at the University of the Western Cape said: "the president and minister of rural development and land reform, gugile nkwinti, have repeatedly made out that the reopening would address claims prior to 1913." Prof Hall said these "political pronouncements" were misleading, especially for groups such as the Khoi and the San, and for traditional leaders
