Claremont - a people’s history and forced removals. by Ndifuna Ukwazi published on 2023-07-13T09:25:48Z 19 June 2023 marked 110 years of the Land Act. On 19 June 1913 the Act was enacted limiting African land ownership to 7 percent and later 13 percent through the 1936 Native Trust and Land Act of South Africa. This marked the beginning of socio-economic challenges the country is facing today such as landlessness, poverty and inequality. Comfortable and privileged suburbs like Claremont and Constantia (which we covered in the previous show: https://on.soundcloud.com/z6Dyv) are taken for granted and not seen as a spatial legacy of apartheid in the same way that cape flats//townships//migrant labour camps are. On this episode we uncovered the story of Claremont's forced removals and longing for home.
