Ivan and other farmers facing evictions in Mpumalanga
W.Cape farmer Ivan Cloete and 39 Mpumalanga farmers facing evictions by dept of Agriculture
The department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development has dismissed reports that a Western Cape farmer is being kicked off his farm, so that a MK veteran could take it over. 56 year old Ivan Cloete, a coloured farmer, who is a legal beneficiary of government's Land Redistribution process, was reportedly served with a notice of eviction. The department however says the matter of Mr Cloete is deliberately being mistaken with the issue of expropriation of land without compensation.. On #SAfmBTH with Aldrin Sampear spoke to Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Mcebisi Skwatsha & Annette Steyn MP - DA Shadow Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development.
