Hundreds outside Cape Town illegally occupy private land

South Africa's white minority population owns more than 70 percent of privately-owned farming land, according to government statistics.

by

    Hundreds of families in an informal settlement outside Cape Town have illegally occupied private land.

    It happened as South Africa's government considers changing the constitution to allow it to seize private land without paying for it.

    The government says this is to empower the black majority in a country where most land is owned by the white minority.

    Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller has more from Stellenbosch, South Africa.
