MetadataShow full item record
This report presents the municipality case study for Sakhisizwe Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape. The goal of the report is to examine the employment creating potential of land redistribution in Sakhisizwe Local Municipality and the costs associated with doing so. Sakhisizwe Local Municipality is located in the north-central part of the Eastern Cape. Its area comprises a large share of commercial farmland, and a smaller share of former Transkei. There has already been a reasonably large amount of land reform there: about 24% of the Municipality’s commercial farmland has changed hands via land reform, most of which happened between 2001 and 2009 via the redistribution programme.
