- The Economic Freedom Fighters have spoken out about the government's decision in the land debacle
- Parliament opted to publish the bill for the amendment of the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation
- The party criticised the lack of 'adequate publicity' and the questionable timing of the move
The Economic Freedom Fighters believe that land expropriation without compensation is what SA needs for 'true total decolonisation'.
A recent statement revealed that the Red Berets feel the government has botched this by releasing the bill for the amendments without a public announcement or other publicity.
The party has now called on Mzansi to share the bill as much as possible to allow citizens the opportunity to comment on the proposed changes to the Constitution:
“We invite all progressive peoples, movements, organisations and formations to send comments in support of the expropriation of land without compensation. This is the historic victory we all need as a country for true total decolonisation to occur."
South Africans have been given 60 days to provide comment and the EFF has made their position clear:
“The principle is simple, the Constitution must be amended to include [an] explicit cause that land must be expropriated, without compensation."
The Citizen reports that there is still a great deal to be done before the Constitution can be changed.
The parliamentary ad hoc committee tasked with the alterations must now take in submissions, with political parties like the Democratic Alliance and the FF+ standing in opposition to the proposal.
Briefly.co.za reported that DA federal executive chairperson Helen Zille had recently enraged with a cartoon touching on the social intricacies of land reform in South Africa.
Following the resignation of former leader Mmusi Maimane, the leading opposition party has called for a move away from race-based policies.
