Hicklin, Ms MB to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development
Whether the Government’s proposed land reform policy on expropriation without compensation will require that title deeds of properties earmarked for expropriation be published before being transferred to beneficiaries to verify that there is no active land claim on the property; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) on what date does she intend to introduce amending legislation in the National Assembly to make provision for the publishing of the title deeds, (b) for which reasons, other than historical land claims, will a dispute for the change of ownership of the specified properties be allowed to be registered, (c) in which publication will the title deeds be published and (d) for what period of time will the title deeds be published?
The function of amending the Constitution to allow for expropriation of land without compensation is currently the responsibility of Parliament.
(a)(b),(c),(d) Falls away.
