Public Hearings on land expropriation

The Joint Constitutional Review Committee will this week hold various public hearings into the possible review of section 25 of the Constitution in the Western Cape.

The decision to hold public hearings follows a mandate by the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces to ascertain whether a review of Section 25 of the Constitution and other clauses are necessary, to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation, and propose the necessary constitutional amendments where necessary.
