Since the announcement that the ANC had agreed on land expropriation in 2017 people have been trying to figure out what it would ultimately look like. The ANC has allegedly decided that all decision regarding land expropriation should be in the hands of one minister.
Briefly.co.za learned that the claims have been reported by the Sunday Times, which has had constitutional law experts cautioning that the proposed plan would be “both unprecedented and unworkable”.
The land expropriation legal framework is expected to be completed by March. The actual expropriation of land will then begin in the subsequent months.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has said that land expropriation would be carried in a responsible way that would not jeopardise the economy. However, the proposed plans have even upset those in the political spectrum who champion the concept of land expropriation, particularly the EFF according to the Southafrican.com.
The EFF has called on the ANC to share the bill as much as possible to allow citizens the opportunity to comment on the proposed changes to the Constitution.
