Ekaluka Farmers' Association and the Land Reform Programme: Expectations and success factors
AbstractThe Land Reform Programme in South Africa aims to transfer 30% of white-owned commercial land to African owners before 2015. The Department of Land Affairs needs to ensure that land redistribution projects are viable and sustainable before approval. This article reports on a case study conducted in the Ermelo district of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, investigating the situation with regard to the Ekaluka Farmers' Association. The expectations, structure and composition, level of education and employment status of all 163 members of the Association were ascertained through structured interviews. The results indicate various factors that could prove valuable in the process of determining the potential success of this proposed land redistribution project.
