Taking land has always been EFF’s priority.
Many times, the party has argued that land is central to the economic freedom of a huge population of South Africa.
To the Fighters, the economic emancipation for all South Africans is achievable only when land is redistributed without the current owners being compensated.
And like the EFF lord once said, “without the land, we (blacks) have nothing, with the land, (whites) have everything.”
EFF Selling Private Land For R15
Reports have it that the party illegally, started selling private land for just R15. Midvaal Mayor Bongani Baloyi confirmed this in a telephone interview with eNCA.
Baloyi said EFF has “started selling illegally, portion of land on a private owned land where there’s an informal settlement for as little as R15 per stand. …We have close to a thousand people there to register.”
Baloyi was asked if he has evidence to substantiate his claims.
Responding, he said: “Certainly. We’ve a number of people from our side who even went to substantiate that it is actually happening. We are also compiling evidence as council to prevent and ensure that we get a court interdict… to prevent the illegal occupation of land.”
EFF’s policy on land among other things, highlights that their stand on land expropriation without occupation is that all land should be transferred to the ownership and custodianship of the state.
EFF advocates that it should be done in a similar way all mineral and petroleum resources were transferred to the ownership and custody of the state through the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA) of 2002.
“The state should, through its legislative capacity transfer all land to the state, which will administer and use land for sustainable-development purposes. This transfer should happen without compensation, and should apply to all South Africans, black and white,” EFF postulates.
