Tracking the Expropriation Bill in Parliament

None

The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure introduced the Expropriation Bill in Parliament on 15 October 2020.

The purpose of the Expropriation Bill is to:

  • Repeal the existing Expropriation Act 63 of 1975
  • Provide a common framework in line with the Constitution to guide the processes and procedures for expropriation of property by organs of state
  • Provide for instances where expropriation with nil compensation may be just and equitable.

The Portfolio Committee on Public Works and Infrastructure released the Bill for public comment/written submissions on 10 December 2020

On 8 April 2021, the Committee commenced its nation-wide public hearings on the Bill (full programme here). The Committee then deferred the physical public participation process due primarily to concerns relating to the high rate of Covid-19 infections in both Northern Cape and Free State provinces.

The Committee subsequently resumed hearings, first in the Northern Cape then Free State, from 21 August 2021 until 29 August. Full programme here
