Kruger Park land claimants want answers over compensation
Some claimants have also criticised government, saying R110,000 per household is not sufficient.
JOHANNESBURG - While the Commission of Restitution of Land Rights has committed to financially compensating families displaced from the Kruger National Park during apartheid, questions have been raised by some as to when they will be paid out.
Some claimants have criticised government, saying R110,000 per household is not sufficient.
Six communities in Mpumalanga will receive a total of R84 million.
Claimant Nelson Mona says they urgently need the money to pay off their children's school fees. He adds they also have other family responsibilities.
"We're struggling and they haven't told us when we're getting the money or how the payments will work."
About 318,000 hectares of land was taken from hundreds of communities at the Kruger National Park by the government.
A total of 17 claims were lodged against the park by locals in 1998.
