IT will take about 250 years for South Africa to make serious headway in ensuring ownership of land in the country is fair.

This is according to Professor Fred Hendricks, who was speaking at the fourth big The Herald Community Dialogue at the South End museum yesterday.

Hendricks and two colleagues, professors Lungisile Ntsebeza and Kirk Helliker, also speakers at the dialogue, recently launched their book, The Promise of Land, Undoing a Century of Dispossession in South Africa which focused on assessing the impact of the 1913 Land Act on today’s society.
