Some international funds have been pledged towards land reform in South Africa. Hopefully it will help move the process forward.
Johannesburg - Belgium and Britain have jointly pledged more than R70 million towards the administration of land reform in South Africa.
At a function at the British high commission in Pretoria on Wednesday, High Commissioner Paul Boateng said land reform would underpin South Africa's political stability and assist rural economic growth.
"Land reform has an important role to play in addressing persistent inequality and creating a sense of ownership, not just in the land itself, but in the process of its development," he said.
Britain's Department for International Development would contribute around R13 million, for speeding up land reform in rural areas and Belgium's contribution was around R56 million.
