This morning at Parliament, the Free State Agricultural Union handed over 85 000 objections to the Democratic Alliance (DA) against the Expropriation Bill.

The DA will submit these objections to Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Public Works and Infrastructure on behalf of the thousands of South Africans who reject this Bill which seeks to disenfranchise owners of all types of property in South Africa, not just landowners or farmers.

The public participation process for the Expropriation Bill comes to an end on 28 February 2021, and we encourage all South Africans to submit the comments in order to have their say in this disastrous legislation.
