The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform says it's transferred hundreds of title deeds to black beneficiaries for agricultural development, since 2009.
Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane says 302 title deeds were directly transferred for agricultural developments.

Nkoana-Mashabane has revealed the deed transfers in a written parliamentary reply on Thursday.
