The 3rd Seminar in the Series focused on the Bill’s treatment of unregistered rights. LARC Land Team Leader Zenande Booi made a presentation focusing on the progress and gaps that exist in the Bill’s provisions related to the expropriation of unregistered land rights.
A couple of years ago, LARC commissioned a film entitled This Land that was directed by Miki Redelinghuys.

On 2 December 2020, the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) passed the Traditional Courts Bill [B1D-2017] (TCB) in a plenary session, after a rushed process that ignored significant concerns raised by numerous stakeholders. Seven provinces voted in favour of the Bill, with KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape the only provinces not in support. This follows the adoption of the report on the Bill by the Select Committee on Security and Justice on 25 November.
The Land and Accountability Research Centre (UCT) in conjunction with the Nelson Mandela Foundation will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday the 25th of November entitled: The future of Ingonyama Trust: Substantive Accountability in a Post-Covid era.
