- Temba Nolutshungu is the director of the Free Market Foundation
- Nolutshungu was detained twice under apartheid, in terms of the General Law Amendment Act and the Terrorism Act.
- He gave his opinion over land expropriation without compensation at the Free Market Foundation
Director of the Free Market Foundation, Temba Nolutshungu is no stranger to conflict. In fact, he was detained twice during the Apartheid era in terms of the General Law Amendment Act and the Terrorism Act.
Speaking recently on the topic of land expropriation without compensation, Nolutshungu had the following to say:
“I just could not comprehend how, given our history in terms of the Natives Land Act, we could contemplate this.”
He added that he believes land expropriation is something that is enshrined in the constitution and that it is not something that can be easily removed. When speaking about the amendment he added that:
“So if it does happen that this initiative carries through and the amendment is effected to the constitution so that it becomes possible for land – and in a broader sense property – to be expropriated without compensation, heaven help us all,” he said.
He also reminded everyone that if implemented, it is something that would apply to all South African, and not just white ones.
Terence Corrigan added to this sentiment and stated that expropriation without compensation did nothing to alleviate daily issues, let alone the issues raised by Kgalema Motlanthe’s high-level panel on the assessment of key legislation and the acceleration of fundamental change.
