Land reform and the possibility of expropriation without compensation are the most hotly debated topics in South Africa today, met with trepidation and fervour in equal measure. But these broader issues tend to obscure a more immediate reality: a severe housing shortage and a sharp increase in urban land occupations.
Land reform and the possibility of expropriation without compensation are the most hotly debated topics in South Africa today, met with trepidation and fervour in equal measure. But these broader issues tend to obscure a more immediate reality: a severe housing shortage and a sharp increase in urban land occupations.

In this book, Karl Kemp travels the country documenting the fallout of failing land reform, from the under-siege Philippi Horticultural Area deep in the heart of Cape Town’s ganglands, to the burning mango groves of Tzaneen, the tribal areas of Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal, where chiefs own vast tracts of land on behalf of their subjects, the farming communities beset by violent crime and the wide-scale land invasions of Johannesburg’s Deep South.

Touching on the history of land conflict and conquest in each area, as well as detailing the current situation on the ground, Kemp reveals the true story of land conflict in South Africa.
