Deputy Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure Noxolo Kievit says the expropriation bill should be seen as a tool that would allow South Africa to expand on land reform. Officials from Kievit and departments appeared before the Parliament’s Committee on Public Works and Infrastructure.
The Committee met with the department, as well as parliamentary and state legal advisers, to investigate the constitutionality of the bill that would allow the expropriation of land without compensation.
Kievit says the bill will also help other government departments trying to tackle land reform.
“This is a tool in the hands of the people of South Africa for the kind of land reform we want to see. “That, it’s more of a tool than anything on our part. But it’s a tool or it’s a key that unlocks South Africa’s potential and ability to initiate and expand land reform.” since Kievit.
