CAPE TOWN - The National Assembly has passed a report calling for a constitutional amendment to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
The African National Congress (ANC), with the support of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and other smaller parties, managed to garner enough numbers to pass the report.
The adoption of the report follows a marathon 10 months of public hearings and debates on the desirability of amending the Constitution.
It has been described as a historic day in the National Assembly where Members of Parliament (MPs) have agreed to amend the Bill of Rights for the first time in democratic South Africa.
MPs debated the report for just under two hours before finally putting it to the vote.
Two hundred and one voted in favour and 91 opposed it.

The opposition parties, who opposed this, also had members supporting the constitutional amendment. The many want this, who am I to disagree and to continue to disagree?

STILL, not a single item is mentioned to be 'amended'? No template, nothing. See, this isn't land expropriation, it is property expropriation.

Social democracy at work here which greatly leans to socialism and populism... I wouldn't be surprised to see the Zulus have their nationalism :whistling:
