Corruption Watch (CW) invites you to join moderator Sakina Kamwendo and the CW team for a listening session marking our new five-part podcast series, Land and Corruption: Story of the Marginalised, as well as the release of a research report that addresses the intersection between land, corruption, and discrimination.

An episode of the podcast series will be played at the listening session on Monday, 23 October 2023, and the report will be released, followed by a short discussion.

The first episode of the series was launched on Wednesday 11 October and subsequent episodes will be released each consecutive Wednesday until 8 November. The series and report are based on CW’s participation in Transparency International’s long-running Land and Corruption in Africa project, which seeks to address land corruption risks and injustices in sub-Saharan Africa.

Currently involved in the second phase of the project, CW’s work in this regard focuses on the plight of people who live and/or work in farming communities, specifically in the Western Cape. The case study included in the report focuses on equity schemes, a policy programme that was rolled out by the Department of Land Reform and Rural Development from the late 1990s until the 2010s. 

The launch will take place as follows:
