AfriForum and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) recently held a second round of deliberations regarding safety and security in farming communities. These deliberations followed on a meeting that AfriForum had with the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Mr Senzeni Zokwana, on 20 March 2015. Minister Zokwana and AfriForum agreed on a five-point plan of action that should be implemented to help protect farmers as well as people living in farming communities.

During the latest deliberations, both AfriForum and the Minister agreed that the scope of this project should be escalated and that other key stakeholders need to be involved as well. Consequently, it was decided that a round table discussion would be organized by the DAFF with the purpose of involving these stakeholders, which include the various agricultural unions, the departments of police and justice and other researchers.
