Department to update claimants on the progress of outstanding claims in the Vhembe District of Limpopo
The Regional Land Claims Commission (RLCC) in Limpopo will host a proactive land restitution engagement meeting in the Vhembe District on Tuesday, 20 August 2019, to give a progress report on outstanding claims lodged before the 31 December 1998 deadline.
The engagement meeting seeks to provide statistical report about the status of all outstanding claims in the area and to discuss the plan of action going forward on how to speedily finalise such claims.

The Restitution of Land Rights Act, 1994 (Act No. 22 of 1994) mandates the Land Claims Commission to advise claimants of the progress of their claims at regular intervals.

In carrying out this mandate, the department is targeting all claimants who lodged claims before 31 December 1998 and whose claims are not yet finalised and/or partially settled, as well as affected land owners, land sector NGOs and local government officials, to attend the proactive land restitution meeting.

Members of the media are invited to cover the meeting as follows:
