FRANCISTOWN: The attorneys for the applicant and defendant in a case in which small-scale farmers are querying the allocations of seven farms in Pandamatenga, have reached an agreement that the respondent will not allocate farms pending a determination of review of proceedings to be instituted by the court not later than the end of April.

In December last year, the farmers made an urgent application before court to oppose the allocation of the farms to two South Africans farmers arguing that the allocation of the farms to the South Africans will greatly prejudice locals who have been on the waiting list for the past 12 months.

Appearing for the farmers in the matter, Francistown-based attorney David Ditiro of Tshekiso Ditiro & Jani Legal Practice told Francistown High Court Judge Phadi Solomon that they have consented with the respondent attorney, Lawrence Lecha, acting on behalf of Chobe Landboard, that the matter will not proceed pending finalisation of an application for review to be instituted by the court before end of April.
