    This paper is concerned primarily with the functions of land administration. Its
    purpose is to describe the current land administration practices as understood by
    traditional structures with a view to unpacking some of the components of the existing
    African tenure arrangements in KwaZulu-Natal. This, it is hoped, will help to create a
    base to understand how communal land systems operate, regardless of which structure
    governs them, in order to support practices that secure tenure effectively.

    Simplification is a process in which all the essential provisions of an existing Legalese constitution are captured in plain language. Simplifying a constitution is more complex than simplifying the language within it. It involves digging out and putting in order the meaning of a document, as well as writing it in plain language.
