AfriForum is ready to assist farm owners in the Free State after Mandisa Makesini, EFF leader in the Free State, said this week that the party will start occupying land in the province.
In a statement, Marnus Kamfer, Afriforum’s legal and risk manager, says the organization has proven over the past two years in particular that he is a formidable opponent of illegal land grabs
The organization has assisted various communities and owners to get their land back and remove the illegal occupiers and trespassers.
“AfriForum has already established contingency plans and tips available to assist landowners in the event of land occupation.”
The community is encouraged to take these tips to heart and to contact Afriforum immediately in the event of land occupation, ”says Kamfer.
“Communities are encouraged to be prepared, to know what is going on in their property and to keep a close eye on their neighbors’ property to prevent possible illegal land occupations early,” he says.
Kamfer says people who want to know more about the tips can contact Afriforum.
