MPs pass ‘problematic’ expropriation bill
Author: Thulani Gqirana
The highly criticised expropriation bill has been passed in Parliament.
The bill was passed despite objections from the DA, the EFF and other opposition parties in the National Assembly on Tuesday.
After a spirited debate, 202 members voted in favour of the bill, 88 voted against it, while two abstained.
The bill has now been sent to the National Council of Provinces for concurrence.
It provides for property to be expropriated in the public interest, as well as for public purpose.
