LOAN understands the need to uphold the fundamental human rights and freedoms as entrenched in the Constitution of the Republic of Namibia.
DID YOU KNOW?
Article 16 of the Namibian Constitution guarantees:
All persons shall have the right in any part of Namibia to acquire, own and dispose of all forms of immovable and movable property.
All persons shall have the right to bequeath their property to their heirs or legatees.
DO YOU REALISE THAT?
The Agricultural (Commercial) Land Reform Act 6 of 1995 (as awarded) abolishes or at least abridges these fundamental rights in that:
A land owner may not acquire, own and dispose of his land freely without government intervention.
Act 1 of 2014, Agricultural (Commercial) Land Reform Amendment abolishes the right to bequeath your farm to your heirs or legatees and further restricts your right to acquire, own and dispose of your farm land. Any land sold out of an insolvent estate, execution sale or deceased estate must first be offered to government and if they do not buy, a waiver is given in favour of a previous disadvantage person, as is stated in the Act "most of the time.
