The second resolution adopted by the Democratic Alliance at its federal congress in Boksburg on Sunday was to ensure that property rights are enjoyed by all South Africans.

The party resolved to continue driving through Parliament the Private Member's Bill, which outlines a legislative framework to replace the Communal Land Rights Act (ClaRa), with security of tenure as its fundamental pillar.

ClaRa was found to be procedurally unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court.

DA MP Athol Trollip said at least 21 million black South Africans in former homelands lived on communal land under the trusteeship of chiefs and traditional leaders without any security of tenure, which resulted in agricultural land remaining unproductive.

The party resolved to adopt a formal party policy to ensure greater security of land tenure away from communal tenure to individual land ownership with title deeds. - Sapa
