It has almost been a year since the ANC announced its plans to expropriate land without compensation.

However, Briefly.co.za reported on Thursday after months of debating the subject, the Joint Constitutional Review Committee has officially adopted plans to amend Section 25 of the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation.

Many SOuth Africans welcomed the news and some even took to social media to kick start the process.

One tweep, Tumelo Mapaa, shared photos of what is believed to be land belonging to South African's richest family- the Oppenheimers.

Mapaa wrote: "I see there is progresson #LandExpropriation. The first land we have to expropriate has to be Tswalu game reserve owned by the Oppenheimers. It is bigger than Pretoria and Durban combined and it is owned by 1 family."
