weeks there are dozens more roughly built homes dotted across this hill in still and bosh near cape town an area known for its affluent vineyards and estates. it's because of our government that we are here we have asked for lent before but they have not helped us we have to make a lot of noise and fight to get this land here a court is ordered that no more can be built and those that have been occupied be destroyed but as night falls people scurry to bring in more building material. is the believe this is our land that was taken from our ancestors even though the current owner bought this land the previous owner stole this land and so now it needs to be returned to us while we are taking the land. according to government statistics of africa's white minority population owns more than seventy percent of privately owned farming land under political and public pressure to reform land ownership the ruling african national congress says it will support moves to change

the constitution to allow the seizure of land as long as it does not harm the agricultural sector or the economy but it's unclear how this will be done and who will qualify for the land while acknowledging the need for urgent land reform presidents forum up was appears to be struggling with a balancing act this week while addressing investors he said the government would not allow land grabs and an alkie wanting to calm the fears of the business community but deciding between what land those people need and what investors want may not make everyone happy the government says it plans to seize one hundred and thirty nine farms across south africa before the constitution is changed if successful amendments to the constitution could be avoided there are fears seizing land without compensation could. scale off investors violate property rights and hurt crude production critics say talk around land exposed creation is
10:20 am
a ploy for votes ahead of next year's elections rather than a sincere attempt to reform land ownership and that expectations should be managed meanwhile people here could face eviction as the landowner returns to court in the coming weeks to have them removed and for me to joins us now from stellenbosch i mean to me to a sensitive issue really that's been rumbling of cross society in south africa the decades now and really the question is nucular workable solution be found eventually that will suit everyone. well that's the difficulty sale that the government is experiencing in that there's a spurs for the explode creation of land given that many black south african specifically have been without homes and land for decades now since the dawn of a party in south african one thousand nine hundred four so the is this great debate around the exposure ration of land versus looking after the economy and just how it will affect the greater south africa where we are now in stellenbosch the local
10:21 am
municipality says that at least twenty two thousand people have been on a waiting list for a whole many of them waiting decades as i said and in the greater cape town area we're looking at about three hundred forty thousand people waiting for homes they're complaining that the government isn't able to keep up with this demand and and that's something that the government has acknowledged but to give us a better idea of the frustrations of the people here in cairo monday instead of gosh we speaking to a wanna. scuse me. who is a member of the political party the economic freedom fighters and also a community leader now the local government here says that it does have municipal land available for people but instead the people have settled on this privately owned land have chosen to do that instead why. are there took no board didn't know of other proved to them the number of them made available for the people to argue
10:22 am
part of their very they were there with the if they said that before this we want people sitting here there was a there on the end that news producer you have a rebel. so no the land was available in the offices not here so those are her choose to come here because this land is never been used to living there for more than twenty years so that's why they jump in here and then the city because the music bug is too deaf to listen to the people that's why they moved from what we've seen it's clear that the is a certain level of desperation in that people want to live closer to centers of economic activity apart from wanting homes is the position that the government has at this point around the explosion expropriation of land without paying compensation is that one that people who support use of cause these people they've been living in these houses behind the houses they've been called piggy others because they're living in somebody else's property they've been paying the rent but mr pollack door the doctrine of still in business
10:23 am
a party doesn't employ people they were working for four months. they don't have a stable job taking small money but i don't doubt that they still have to pay the rent on so that's why they're there they become so desperate to have their place to call home that belongs to them so that's why they choose to come here and sit because they're not going to be paying rent reza thanks so much for your time people here say that if government pushes for the exposed ration of land without compensation it will be it will allow them to to contribute to the economy in a more meaningful way but of course the government is sitting in a very precarious position we are just months away from a national election here in south africa so people don't want this just to be a political position that doesn't bear any fruit but one that is actually meaningful and contributions to many south africans who are without land and home soil. for me to thanks for joining us from stellenbosch. now the syrian army is
