The ANC national conference decided its National Executive Committee (NEC) would start the process towards a constitutional amendment of Section 25, or the Constitution’s property clause, to make possible land redistribution without compensation. There is a carefully phrased and potentially crucial rider: a sustainability test to ensure such redistribution does not negatively impact on the agriculture, food security or other sectors such as financial services, which hold around 70% of commercial farmers’ debt.
This will be a painfull loss to the unfortunate owners of land.
I have empathy with the majority decision, however I had the personal experience of the most painful loss in my life being the loss of the farm Campfornis in the district of Zoutpansberg without compensation.
