The drought that has hammered Southern Africa over the past years is a potent reminder (if ever it was needed) of the foundational importance of agriculture to the continent’s fortunes. Agriculture remains a mainstay of Africa’s economy, accounting for around a third of GDP and two thirds of employment.

From legislation under consideration – such as the new Expropriation Bill – to a reopened land claims process, to violent evictions in Hammanskraal, to emotive rhetoric around current landholding patterns, the politics of land is shaking South Africa.

Land Reform in Southern Africa

eAfrica Volume 2, June 2004
South Africa: Land reform was high on the agenda when the African National Congress came into power in 1994, but the country's commitment to an orderly legal process has slowed redistribution. South Africa's approach has three levels: restitution, redistribution and land tenure reform. Restitution seeks to restore land ownership or compensate those who were forcibly removed during apartheid. Redistribution aims to provide people with access to land and address the inequalities of the apartheid and colonial past.

State support, rule of law and collaboration are key to ensuring successful land reform in South Africa

THE Mataffin Farm in Nelspruit, South Africa is testament to the country's thriving - and transforming - agricultural sector. Tidy rows of robust avocado trees splay across soft, rolling hills. Two schools and a spacious soccer pitch are enjoyed by the farm workers' children. Mataffin's white managers and its new black owners are working hand in hand to ensure that this coveted land continues to produce abundant harvests as it has for more than 100 years.
