I object to the amendments to the Constitution suggested in the Draft Constitution Eighteenth Amendment Bill.
I believe that the existing owner of a piece of land should be compensated at market value if the government expropriates said land (and improvements thereon) for land reform purposes. Thus, I find nil compensation unacceptable in these circumstances.
I am also not convinced that the government’s definition of public interest is indeed in the public’s interest.
Furthermore, the government has proved without fail that it cannot protect the land as the heritage of all citizens.
Therefore, if the government becomes the custodian of ‘certain’ land, it will not automatically lead to all citizens gaining access to the land on an equitable basis.
The economic effect of expropriation without compensation will be devastating to this country. It will reduce foreign investment and drain South Africa of all expertise.
I am opposed to all of the suggested amendments
