SPII Talk Newsletter 2nd Quarter April – July 2018
In this edition of SPII Talk, Nsimbi helps us understand the disastrous human consequences of a failing land reform programme. Nsimbi, a 56-year-old domestic worker, talks about how she has been forced to live like a vagrant. To have no home in the place of your birth seems like a perverse trick of history, especially when your livelihood is derived from creating a
comfortable home for others. Also consider the fact that KwaZulu-Natal, with its lush, expansive hills, is a sterile hunting ground for so many. At the same time it’s been appropriated by wealthy land barons whose fortunes were built on vast sugar plantations and cattle ranches.
