Minister of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform Calle Schlettwein, has urged members of the lands tribunal to attend to cases brought to them within a reasonable time and decide on matters without any fear or favour. The Namibia press agency reports that, while congratulating the members after they were sworn in at the Windhoek High Court, Schlettwein cautioned that the volume of the functions will double or triple, once the land bill is enacted into law because matters pertaining to communal land will be referred to the same body, and that the Namibian nation has high expectations from them.
