Congress of South African Trade Unions President Sidumo Dlamini clearly explains COSATU’s position on nationalisation.
How will Cosatu redress this land question when the policies and practices of both Land Bank [which expects 200% guarantee on their loans] and Agriculture Dept refuses to grant any emerging farmer farming land in excess of 25oha? Any person expecting to make a livin g of anything less than 1000ha should get his/her head reexamined. Dept of Agriculture officials are also hostile towards progressive white farmers intending to skill or empower most of emerging farmers and this conduct must stop. How will Cosatu help with this?
