South Africa Explores Constitutional Change to Allow Land Seizures

President Ramaphosa and his ANC party deputy President Mabuza wave to supporters ahead of the ANC

On Wednesday evening, Malema reportedly said farmers working productive land should not worry.

The motion was voted against by parties including the DA.

"The property clause in Section 25 of the Constitution states that property is not limited to land".

"We must all be allocated land".

"All our people ever wanted is their land to which their dignity is rooted and founded‚" he said.

Minister of Water and Sanitation Gugile Nkwinti, who is also the former minister of rural affairs and land reform, said the ruling African National Congress Party (ANC) also supports "the principle of land expropriation without compensation".

Given this history of the plundering African people's land it is easy to understand why reclaiming land stolen from its rightful owners in the African community would be such a central part of the 1955 Freedom Charter, why it became a main demands of the liberation struggle and why it is it still such a burning issue today. All land will belong to the state. You can't come tomorrow and say I have sold my piece of land.

Jaguars sign Blake Bortles to 3-year, $54M contract
Bortles has been the subject of heavy criticism since being selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. That would be four potential difference makers, counting Robinson, that Bortles didn't have last season.

"This thing is going to court, make no mistake".

The country's biggest opposition party, the DA, is vehemently opposed to amending the Constitution, saying there was already a land redistribution programme in place, and suggested government was not doing enough to implement it.

"It is not an issue that will cause a nightmare. It will be dealt with within the confines of the Constitution", he reportedly said. While the country still struggles to overcome the injustices of Apartheid in the course and aftermath of which black people's property rights had been grossly abused, the newly-passed motion does not seem to be a solution to the problem as it risks fuelling racial tensions, rather than finding an inclusive way to shed the legacy of the past.

Malema, the leader of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), had been pushing for the motion for a long time.

In 2016 he told supporters he was "not calling for the slaughter of white people - at least for now".

EFF Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said that they would scrutinise the candidate and would only vote with the ANC if that candidate meets their standards which they have aligned with Jonas' character.

At the time, he reportedly said: "When we leave here, you will see any handsome piece of land, you like it, occupy it, it belongs to you. As the ANC in Parliament, we will closely monitor this process", he added. The national assembly, in concurrence with its upper house, instructed its constitutional review committee to review the constitution in line with the successful motion and report back to it by 30 August 2018.
