Selwane Land Claims Drags

The BaPhalaborwa-ba-ga-Selwane are up in arms over land claim

The BaPhalaborwa-ba-ga-Selwane community is up in arms because the Limpopo Land Claims Commission has not yet submitted relevant information to the Land Claims Court to motion their legal battle against the Majeje tribal authority.

The Commission was first ordered in 2008 at a pre-trial hearing in the Land Claims Court to submit information, which would help to resolve the land dispute between the Selwane community and the Majeje tribal authority.

The community is claiming land covering several farms and a game reserve, but the Majeje tribal authority opposes the community's claim, saying it was given the land in 1930.
