'What are we going to do with this land?' asks our #FridayStandIn Slikour

The question of how land redistribution should take place and what land ownership means for dispossessed communities dominated the #OpenLine.

702/Cape Talk's #FridayStandIn, Slikour (real name Siyabonga Metane) gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the issue.

Listen to the conversation below:

The land distribution situation needs to be dealt with. The important thing is also that when people get land, they are trained on what to do with it.

Dorothy, caller in Seapoint

People receive land and it just lies there, that doesn't help. The land must be managed well because farming is a capital intensive industry.

Paul, caller in Somerset West

Every time we talk about the land, white people talk about food security but it's not only about farming. There are a lot of white people benefitting from land, they develop the land as well.

Malepane, caller in Oliewenhout

Callers also highlighted the challenges of issuing title deeds to individuals or communities, and what that process entails.

For so many years before the land was removed from black people, it actually didn't have titles that were specific to people.

Ernest, caller in Durbanville

How many people have title deeds when the government gives them RDP's? If you're going to give people land then you need to give them a title deed.

Miles, caller in Edenvale

I think it's necessary for urgent redress in terms of land redistribution to rectify the injustices of the past.

Hugo, caller in Pretoria
