The Western Cape High Court is to hear the urgent interdict that AfriForum applied for. The group hopes to put a stop the Parliament's land expropriation process.

The process will lead to the amendment of the Constitution to allow land expropriation without compensation.

According to AfriForum, the report by the Constitutional Review Committee is flawed and has not taken into consideration thousands of written submissions, as reported by eNCA.

This comes after the Committee has officially adopted plans to amend Section 25 of the Constitution

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the process is drawing to a close, bringing the reality of expropriation without compensation closer.

However, the proposal must still be passed by both Houses of Parliament and then signed into law.
