South Africa: Constitutional Amendments to Expropriate Land Without Compensation Moving Ahead
South Africa has moved beyond considering whether section 25 of the Constitution should be amended to allow expropriation without compensation and has published a draft Bill inviting public comments. Written submissions on the Draft Bill will be accepted until January 31, 2020. The ad hoc Committee is scheduled to make final submissions to Parliament in March 2020. If passed, this Bill may allow for the expropriation of land without compensation in South Africa under certain circumstances.
