Grave concerns were raised as to whether the overall land reform programme embarked upon in 1994 has really been successful (Van der Walt 'Hoekom grondhervorming misluk' Burger (2009-08-28) 28; Barnard 'Zuma moet ingryp oor Distrik Ses' Burger (2009-08-14) 12). Specific concern exists over the slow pace of redistribution of agricultural land and the number of farmers who, after having received farm land, were unable to farm their land productively (Cillie 'Sukkelboere verloor grond' Sake Burger (2009-08-18) 1). In this regard government has indicated that it will make available additional financial support, totalling R146 million, to about 500 farmers in dire need of funds in order to proceed with farming.
