04 October 2018 - NW2195
Groenewald, Dr PJ to ask the MINISTER OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT AND LAND REFORM
(1) In light of her department’s alleged intention that 139 farms have been identified for land expropriation without compensation test cases, (a) where is each of the listed farms located, (b) how many hectares are each farm and (c) whether each farm is currently in (i) private, (ii) state or (iii) trust ownership; (2) for what purposes must every farm be expropriated; (3) whether she will make a statement on the matter?
1. As I have already stated publically in response to these allegations, there is no list of arms earmarked for “land expropriation without compensation”. We will however continue to implement land reform in terms of existing laws including the Expropriation Act 63 of 1975 and the Property Valuations Act 17 of 2014 as well as existing provisions in section 42E of the Restitution of Land Rights Act 22 of 1994, together with any other applicable legislation approved by this Parliament that makes provision for expropriation. The matter on policy and related amendments to effect expropriation without compensation remains work in progress of this Parliament.
a),(b),(c)(i),(ii),(iii) Falls away.
(2) Falls away
(3) Falls away
