Bill blasted

Lund, Troye

The article focuses on the proposed Land Expropriation Bill that will be implemented by the Government of South Africa across the country. The Bill could provide South Africa Public Works Minister powers to expropriate land, immovable assets as well as natural resources. However, the provision is leaving the Bill in doubt because the Constitution provides that deals with compensation and required the price for expropriated land must be settled either by the two parties involved or by a court.
