As reported previously, the Joint Constitutional Review Committee asked South Africans to fill in and submit forms on land expropriation to be reviewed and they received more than 700 000 submissions.

However, now that the submissions are done, South Africans have the opportunity to give their opinions on the matter during a nationwide tour by the committee, which kicked off on Tuesday at 11:00 in Concordia, Springbok in the Northern Cape.

News24 reported the tour, which would have 36 stops, is part of the 63rd anniversary of the Freedom Charter, adopted in 1955.

So, by means of giving the people a voice, gathered a few opinions of the South Africans, who attended the meeting on Tuesday.

A man was spotted outside hearing, with signs reading, "Give don't take" and "Yes for land reform".
