Members of Ntlo ya Dikgosi voted against Kgosi Letso Malema of Bobirwa region’s motion yesterday, which called for policies to limit the number of plots an individual can buy.

Malema had requested that Dikgosi ask government to limit the number of plots bought by one person in order to curb a situation where only the rich possess land. Presenting his motion, Malema said he was worried about the shortage of land throughout the country.
