Fog of jaw over KZN land claim

Fog of jaw over KZN land claim

For 103-year-old Pietermaritzburg labour tenant Zabalaza Mshengu, the road to getting title deeds to the land he has occupied his entire life has no end in sight.

He has been waiting for his land to be transferred to his name for 16 years, but a series of delays, most of them unexplained, haved dogged the process.

However, it would seem articles in Noseweek may have spurred some of those responsible for the delays into (slow) action. The director-general of the Department of Rural Development and Land Affairs in KZN, Jomo Ntuli, is finally taking a personal interest in the matter. Whether that will make a difference is yet to be seen.
