Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has organised a summit meeting to discuss the land under the Ingonyama Trust and the Land Expropriation Bill.
The Trust is traditional tribal land under his custodianship.
The bill threatens the sovereignty of the tribal land with senior government officials, as well as opposition party officials, calling for the land to be seeded to and managed by the state.
But the Zulu monarch says no this is not going to happen.
Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, Land expert at the Land and Accountability Research Centre at UCT Dr Aninka Claassens says the king is really making a mountain out of a molehill.
The Motlanthe High-level Panel report made over a 100 recommendations to Parliament and one of those was that the Act should be reviewed and may be appealed or amended in order to protect the land rights of people in KwaZulu-Natal.— Dr Aninka Claassens Land and Accountability Research Centre at UCT
So Parliament is busy discussing those recommendations and no decisions have been taken whatsoever. So to say that this is something that requires an urgent response is really much more about drumming up amabutho than actually what is happening.— Dr Aninka Claassens, Land and Accountability Research Centre at UCT
