‘We have nowhere’: South Africa’s landless vent their fury

“I’ve waited for a government house for 21 years,” complained Andiswa, a 45-year-old mother of three.

She and around 200 other destitute, frustrated families have taken over a plot of land outside Cape Town, where they have erected ramshackle shelters they now call home.

Illegal land seizures of this kind have surged in recent months, overwhelming police.

With an eye on nationwide elections next year, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party has vowed to accelerate land reform in favour of the country’s black majority who were systematically disenfranchised under apartheid.
