Land claim drags

THE BaPhalaborwa-ba-ga-Selwane community in Limpopo is up in arms because the Limpopo land claims commission has not yet submitted relevant information to the Land Claims Court to motion their legal battle against the Majeje tribal authority.

The commission was first ordered in 2008 at a pre-trial hearing in the Land Claims Court in Randburg to submit information, which would help to resolve the land dispute between the Selwane community and the Majeje tribal authority.

The community is claiming land covering several farms and a game reserve. But the Majeje tribal authority is opposing the community's claim, saying the land was given to the Majeje in 1930.

Commission spokesman Motlatsi Lebea said he could not provide details of the matter because court officials were on leave.
