Expropriation Bill To Be Re-Written

ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe has confirmed that the amendments to the Expropriation Bill in their current form will not be pushed through Parliament. The Department of Public Works and the portfolio committee have previously declined to confirm whether the legislation would be withdrawn, despite media reports suggesting it would be.

According to a Beeld report (Link to Afrikaans Article), Mantashe cautioned it would be a mistake to think that the land issue was settled, adding that a balance between ‘white fears’ and ‘black aspirations’ needed be found.
