The Committee was briefed by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR) on the performance of Communal Property Associations for March to December 2015. In all, 1 483 Communal Property Associations (CPAs) had been registered since the passing of the Act and 48 were registered in the 2015/16 financial year. The CPAs had been afflicted by a number of problems and the Department had taken steps to address them by the establishment of CPA District Fora to serve as a platform to share experiences. 138 CPAs received training and the scope of the Land Reform Management Facility had been extended to include support and regularisation. Three CPAs were placed under administration for gross dysfunctionality, lack of accountability and misuse of finances. 125 CPAs had been supported towards compliance for the year 2015/16. The challenges that led to the loss of land were disputes amongst community members, sales concluded without proper consultation or without the knowledge of community members. Land validly sold must be deregistered. There were 18 provisional CPAs and processes were under way to turn them into permanent ones
