An exploratory study into the challenges of Tenure Reform in the area of Sweetwater (Pietermaritzburg) : implications for policy and practice.
This study aims to explore and identify challenges currently affecting the community of Sweetwater in the area of kwaNxamalala and kwaMpande with regards to land tenure security. The study seeks to highlight whether South Africa’s tenure reform policies in communal areas are in accordance with the realities at ground level. A combination of theories have been used to highlight South Africa’s challenge in creating a land administration system with democratic character to ensure effective tenure security for citizens residing in communal areas under the jurisdiction of traditional authorities. The data from the two communities was collected by means of a series of interviews and a focus group discussion with the tribal committee of Sweetwater. The results and findings of the challenges are presented in the study. The main conclusion of the study relates to whether South Africa has been able to provide tenure security to communities residing under the jurisdiction of traditional authorities.
