Caller Lesego says she applied for the LRAD (Land Redistribution for Agricultural Development) grant in 2008. When her application was lost, she then went on to reapply in 2014 and has since been waiting for farming land to be allocated to her for a piggery.
She says the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform has sent her from pillar to post.
I am still waiting for a farm because they said to me they do not have farms. I went around, looked for a farm. After the whole process, once the farm was supposed to be transferred then they told me no it does not suit me.— Lesego, caller
They went to show me another farm last year in July and now they ave a problem with that farm because the person has vandalised that farm and they cannot evict that person but they have taken the person to court as well.— Lesego, caller
