Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Minister Thoko Didiza says she is pleased the Expropriation Bill has been tabled in Parliament.
“This important bill will ensure alignment with the Constitution as well as creating a clear framework on how expropriation for public purpose and public interest will be undertaken,” Didiza said.
Addressing the media in Pretoria on Tuesday, Didiza said it is important that people familiarise themselves with the legislation and make inputs to the parliamentary process as lawmakers craft the legislation that will become part of the legal framework.
Didiza said land reform is an important economic base for agricultural development, industrialisation and human settlement.
“Land reform, therefore, plays a critical role in enabling those who have been historically disadvantaged to have an asset that can give them a foothold in economic participation,” Didiza said.
