Reading Time: < 1 minute

Public hearings by the Constitutional Review Committee will start in Parliament this week. This, after the committee held public hearings in all nine provinces.

The Committee is tasked with establishing whether Section 25 of the Constitution should be changed to allow for land expropriation without compensation.

The spokesperson of Parliament, Moloto Mothapo, says this week’s public hearings are done with organisations and individuals who indicated in their written submissions that they would also like to make oral submissions at Parliament and have, so far, confirmed their availability during the given period.

Organisations such as AgriSA, Black First Land First and the Orania Movement are among those listed to make oral representations.

Public hearings will be done over four days.
