MASUNGA: The government has bought 20 farms to alleviate land shortages in the North East District (NED).

Tati East Land Board chairperson, Kgotlaetsho Morakanyane, told Mmegi yesterday that one of the purchases is a 615-hectare farm known as 55 OQ along Vukwi River, east of Mambo village.

The land board officer said they have allocated land from other farms they bought to different government departments. He said that even though the district is faced with land shortages, some of the land might end up not being used for residential purposes. “We have to strike a delicate balance when allocating land because some areas are short of land for grazing and residential purposes while some are not. Every department that has been allocated land will utilise it according to its most pressing needs,” Morakanyane explained.
