Abstract

The former homeland areas of South Africa are characterised by extreme poverty, high levels of urban dependence, a reliance on pensions and low levels of agricultural production. This paper is based on a case-study of the Eastern Cape province and details rural realities, the importance of pensions and the constraints which face current plans to develop and expand the periodic marketing network.
