Following the advent of democracy in South Africa, in 1994, the new government introduced welcome legislation in an attempt to address some of the injustices of the past. Sadly some of these laws, particularly the one dealing with the restitution of land (Restitution of Land Rights Act 22, 1994), has been subverted by corruption, incompetence and maladministration with the result that some legitimately entitled communities may be deprived of their land rights. The land claim known as the ‘Broederstroom land claim’, was lodged on 31 December 1998, and yet (twenty years after lodgement) it has still not been concluded in the designated court. The legal and administrative costs (which are significant) have until now been entirely self-funded by the community on a shared basis. Unfortunately the money is beginning to run out and the community is faced with the prospect of losing their land and their homes, as a result of being unable to pay for the legal services required.
Beneficiaries will be the community. Funds raised will be used to pay third party legal costs. (All administration costs are funded directly by the community.) The funds are needed by the latter part of 2019. Crowdfunding support will make the difference between loosing and keeping the land the community believe is rightfully theirs and which, in some cases, has been in the same family for generations.
