The sustained policy of demolishing homes and forcibly moving people from the land on which they had been living was for a long time one of the most reviled practices of the South African state (Desmond 1986, Du Toit 1982, Harries 1970, O'Regan 1989 and Tatz 1962). Land is (and has always been) of particular significance to humankind. Without it people would not have homes, building materials, grazing areas, places to cultivate crops, etc.
