Abstract

Land and agrarian reforms were main promises of the ANC during its ascension to power the objective was to redistribute 30 of the land within 5 years after the end of apartheid and, through this redistribution, restructure the agricultural sector. Nevertheless, presently, more than 10 years after the first democratic elections, only 3.1 of the land has been redistributed and the farming sector remains extremely dual. This paper argues that the implemented marketoriented reforms, which are not complemented by regulation measures, do not represent the capacities of transformation of the racial configuration of South Africa's territory and agricultural sector.
