Amendment of Section 25 and Expropriation Bill

Include herewith the proposed wording for amending section 25 of the Constitution. The due date for written comments is 31 January 2020. Agri SA will prepare draft comments that we will circulate for your inputs by the end of this week. Please note that the inputs by our senior legal team will only be received and incorporated by the middle of January.  We will then, once again circulate the final draft for mandating..

Please also find attached my notes from the 5 December NEDLAC engagement on the Expropriation Bill.

The Ad Hoc Committee to Initiate and Introduce Legislation Amending Section 25 of the Constitution calls for written submissions on the Draft Constitution Eighteenth Amendment Bill.
The aim of the Bill is to amend the Constitution of South Africa so as to, among others, provide that where land and any improvements thereon are expropriated for the purposes of land reform, nil compensation may be payable.
Written submissions must be received by no later than Friday, 31 January 2020.

Submissions and enquiries must be directed to Mr V Ramaano at or tel: (021) 403-3820 or 083 709 8427
