Expropriation Bill: ANC cannot be trusted
29 January 2021
The ANC cannot be trusted with land in South Africa and the FF Plus wants to encourage the public to provide their input and comments on the Expropriation Bill before the deadline of 10 February. (Notice attached herewith.)
The FF Plus finds various aspects of the Bill alarming seeing as it essentially violates the right to private ownership.
One such example is Section 12(3)(a). Section 12 defines cases in which the government may, on "fair and just" grounds, expropriate land without compensation and paragraph 3(a) reads:
“Where land is not being used and the owner’s main purpose is not to develop the land or use it to generate income, but to benefit from appreciation of its market value”.
