Abstract

The land redistribution process remains one of South Africa's key socio-economic processes aimed at economic transformation. Research conducted in northern KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) municipal districts regarding land redistribution cases involving sugarcane farms, indicated that when stakeholders in redistribution cases were party to some medium- to long-term agreements or relationships, and cooperated within some legally binding framework, the redistribution process resulted in relatively greater levels of success, writes Nhlanhla Mbatha.
