The first I knew that a strike had been averted at the Deeds Office was when I got an email from Sieg. It would have been "troublesome" for my business, alright. And for many others I know.
Now I note with interest the following story:
I couldn't agree more. The leaders are responsible, Lulama.Leadership and management "challenges" have led to problems in her department, Minister of Agriculture and Land Affairs Lulama Xingwana said on Wednesday.
The problems include the implementation of land-reform and restitution programmes, the administration of state land, land audits and human resource management, Xingwana said in a statement.
Capacity constraints are also affecting the ability to deliver and there is a lack of personnel to manage leases and plans at provincial level.
There are currently 1 000 vacancies in the department and only about a third of state land has been audited to date.
