FF Plus: Land expropriation is inherently flawed

The Freedom Front Plus is adamant it will make it as difficult as possible for the ANC to amend the constitution in terms of land reform.

The ANC has tabled a motion to establish a parliamentary committee tasked with assessing the legislation around making land expropriation without compensation a reality.

However, the FF plus stated that amendments of the constitution to make this happen are “inherently flawed”.

"The FF Plus wants to reiterate that the process of amending the Constitution to make expropriation without compensation possible is inherently flawed," read a statement.

"The FF Plus will, thus, ensure that the correct legal processes are followed if the ANC does indeed want to amend the Constitution by means of legal processes.

"There are still people who are under the impression that it is only agricultural land that is at stake here. Section 25 of the Constitution clearly states that property is not limited to land. It includes movable and intellectual property.

"The people of South Africa need to understand that expropriation without compensation will seriously jeopardise the future of South Africa and they will have to voice their misgivings about this. The FF Plus condemns it and will do everything in its power to prevent any amendments to the Constitution that will make expropriation without compensation possible."
