Land expropriation without compensation

Share your views and thoughts on expropriation of land without compensation and the review of Section 25 of the Constitution

As part of the Joint Constitutional Review Committee’s constitutional obligation to facilitate public participation, it has invited written submissions from all stakeholders on the necessity of and mechanisms for expropriating land without compensation.

The committee was instructed by the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces to review Section 25 of the Constitution and other clauses where necessary, to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation and propose the necessary Amendments to the Constitution, where necessary.

All intended beneficiaries of the land reform programme must participate

It is crucial for especially communities and Communal Property Institutions (CPIs) to understand the value of their involvement and the impact that their voice will have in these discussions. Their experiences can help put a sharp focus on current challenges and concerns within the land reform programme.


Vumelana appeals to community leaders to play their civic duty and rally communities to exercise their constitutional prerogative of making their voices heard and making a meaningful contribution to these discussions that will not only impact on their future, but that of generations to come. This critical feedback by communities and intended beneficiaries of the land reform programme is a key ingredient in making this process a success.

    While acknowledging that expropriation might be one of many options to consider when trying to address land reform in SA, we should not forget that land expropriation will not solve the real challenges with land reform… It will not solve the lack of support to beneficiaries of the land reform programme, it will not solve the challenges around capacity, skills and resources when implementing the land reform programme…

    It will be much interesting to see how the Constitution and others sections where necessary to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation
