Government to blame

I write this letter because I have been selling farms for over 12 years and have been involved with all types of buyers, including the government.

We read how slow the process is, the government putting the blame on everyone but themselves. Well I have got news for them and I hope Minister Nkwinti is reading this. Come and spend a day in my office and see how I bump heads with all sorts of departments under the employment of our government. The first step in buying land is for the government to do a farm assessment. If this happens in less than six months then someone is getting a backhand.

To get feedback is almost impossible and how many times must I phone only to hear that he/she is on tea, booked off sick or on study leave? I can only call it sheltered employment. I feel sorry for the genuine sellers and for those buyers who are being denied ownership because of the incompetence of their fellow South Africans!
