Witzenberg, which includes Ceres, the Koue Bokkeveld, Wolseley, Tulbagh, Breede River North and the Ceres Karoo is implementing a radical land reform initiative.
The Witzenberg Partnership was established in agreement between the Witzenberg agri producers, Witzenberg Municipality and the community. It was agreed to expedite land reform in a unique manner and to stimulate economic growth, job creation and social harmony. The goals include the establishment of successful black farmers, to involve the whole community in an inclusive process, to extend the initiative to other areas and agri related industries, to establish the Witzenberg Centre as “one stop shop” and focus on mentorships and training programmes.
Implementation takes place in accordance with the principles of the National Development Plan and the Municipality’s Integrated Development Plan.
