Rural development and land reform minister urges land reform beneficiaries to enter into a formal performance contract with the state

Rural Development and Land Reform Minister, Gugile Nkwinti, has urged black farmers who received land through the government’s various redistribution and restitution programmes to enter into a formal performance contract with the state.

Addressing a two-day recapitalisation and development evaluation workshop in Boksburg, Nkwinti, who explained the terms and conditions of the contracts, explained that the contracts will enable them to obtain resources and expert advice to help them become successful farmers.

"We all have to deliver and the contract is one tool for the state to measure the success or failure of the programme and to ensure farmers also deliver on their side of the bargain," he explained.
