"We have had a relationship with public works in the province when the ANC was in government and we had identified pieces of land which had then been transferred to our housing development agency to enable us to build houses. ​ [but considering who gets the houses it raises an interesting question] Economist Dawie Roodt said the protection of private property rights was at the centre of the rush to the courts. “The concern is over the protection of private property rights.
