This application concerns the rights to the land described in Deed of Grant G7307/1999 as:
“Lot KWA MADIBA (portion of A. A. No. 20 called QUNU) situate in the Administrative District of Umtata Province of the Eastern Cape
In EXTENT NINE SIX COMMA EIGHT NINE FIVE NINE (96,8959) HECTARE” (the property).
The property is situated at Qunu, the birthplace of the late former President of the Republic of South Africa, Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. On 16 November 1997 the third respondent, the Minister of Land Affairs for the RSA (the Minister) took a decision to donate the property to Mr Mandela (the Minister’s decision). The Minister acted on recommendation of the Director-General of the Department of Land Affairs and in terms of the State Land Disposal Act 48 of 1961. As a result, the second respondent, the Registrar of Deeds, Mthatha, registered the property in the name of Mr Mandela in terms of Deed of Grant G7307/1999.
The applicant, Mrs Nomzamo Winifred Zanyiwe Madikizela Mandela, in essence seeks an order reviewing and setting aside the Minister’s decision. It is not necessary to detail the further prayers contained in the amended notice of motion. It suffices to say that they are for a relief that are depended on or consequential to the review and setting aside of the Minister’s decision.
