Debate tackles land issue in SA

- | 3 months ago

THE Land is Ours seminar, hosted during the Articulate Africa Book and Art Fair, lived up to expectations.

The debate was based on Advocate Thembeka Ngcukaitobi’s book, The Land is Ours, which tells a story of three black lawyers who, during the era of aggressive colonial expansion and land dispossession, were forced labourers. The lawyers believed in a constitutional system that respected individual rights and freedoms so they used the law as an instrument against the injustices of colonialism.

The debate intensified as the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC) member Senzo Mchunu, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) provincial chairperson, Vusi Khoza, president of Black First Land First (BLF) Thabani Zikalala, Professor Bheki Mngomezulu and young farmer Ayanda Zulu, debated the land question.
