Siphiwo Makinana, an Agri SA board member, has criticized the government over the land that was given to black farmers.
He states that since Derek Hanekom time when farms were given to black farmers “nothing has taken place on them to date.” He goes on saying that the government must determine why most farms given to black people are still not fully commercially utilized.
It is known that the largest number of black farmers in the country are subsistence farmers, and a small number are called emerging farmers, which is not a clear definition for farmers.
Blacks have repeatedly shown that they are not really interested in land ownership, but rather prefer the money in place of the land.
