Mogoditshane Land Board owed P1m in leases

The Minister of Lands and Housing, Prince Maele says that Mogoditshane land board is owed approximately P1million in unpaid leases.

Maele revealed this when addressing a kgotla meeting in Gabane yesterday, adding that this situation negatively affected his ministry’s operations and they were working around the clock to rectify the problem.  “I have asked the cabinet to help in this regard, I proposed that if someone goes to renew their shop licenses, they should check if the lease has been paid, if not, they should retain the license until the person pays. It is the only way we can catch these people,” he said

Maele also raised concern over the high number of people who sell their plots, citing that from January to June this year, about 385 plots in Gabane have been transferred to new owners.
