Parliament is scheduled to consider early next month the issue of the report that will recommend the amendment of the Constitution to allow for expropriation of land without compensation.

The Section 25 Committee adopted its report for tabling to the National Assembly in September.

The debate on the report was delayed when Parliament went into an early constituency period to allow parties to campaign for the local government elections.

This was after the committee approved the 18th constitutional amendment bill following the consideration of the second round of written submissions by the public.

The bill provides for circumstances where land can be expropriated for land reform and the compensation payable may be nil.

There are doubts whether the proposed bill would obtain the required two thirds majority considering that the EFF is unhappy with the legislation in its current form.
