Fact Check 2: 45% of black South Africans want land

by Ruth Hall, with Alex Dubb in 2013

A comprehensive study of the demand for land carried out in 2005/6 reveals that one third of black South Africans want access to land for food production, and another 12% want land for a variety of other reasons (Aliber et al, 2006). Nearly half (48%) of those wanting access to land, want only 1 ha or less.
