COPE to discuss land redistribution

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Congress of the People (COPE) Deputy President, Willy Madisha, says the party and other stake holders will discuss and develop a response to restitution and redistribution in the country.

Speaking at a media briefing in Bloemfontein, Madisha says the present Constitution and its property clause reflects the policy position of the party.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) passed a motion of land expropriation without compensation in the National Assembly and was strongly supported by other parties including the African National Congress (ANC).

Madisha says the Constitution does adequately cater for restitution and redistribution.

“We are aware that Parliament has resolved to undertake a Constitutional review process on the matter and we will be mobilising like minded forces to make our submissions when the right time comes. We are confident that by 30 August 2018 we shall be proven right again,” says Madisha.
