Ad Hoc Committee to Initiate and Introduce Legislation amending Section 25 of Constitution

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.

The Committee resolved to extend the deadline to 29 February 2020. This is mainly because the Bill was published over the festive season, and the public did not have sufficient time to comment meaningfully on the Bill. The initial deadline was 31 January 2020.

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

Submissions can also be sent via WhatsApp to 081 410 5932
