Mixed reaction to land expropriation push By PHATHU LUVHENGO
South Africa's parliament voted Tuesday to move forward with an amendment to the country's constitution that would allow the government to seize and redistribute white-owned land without compensation.
Mr Malema said the time for "reconciliation is over".
African National Congress deputy chief Dorries Eunice Dlakude said the party, which supported an amended version of the motion, "recognises that the current policy instruments, including the willing-buyer, willing-seller policy may be hindering effective land reform".
Two decades after the end of apartheid, the ANC is under pressure to redress racial disparities in land ownership where whites own most of the land.
Cyril Ramaphosa, who was elected party leader in December and the nation's president February 15, affirmed the ANC's decision to seize land without compensation to speed up land reform, but said it would only be done in a responsible manner that didn't harm the economy, agricultural production or food security. Tuesday's vote mobilized parliament's Constitutional Review Committee to deliver a report on the topic by August 30.
"We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land", Malema told parliament ahead of the vote, according to South Africa's News24.
The ANC backed the EFF's planned motion of no confidence in Jacob Zuma only for Zuma to resign as president.
Magushule said the land reform programme must have clear targets and time frames.
He also said that South Africans would not pay rent to the state for land, and that only corporates and foreign investors would pay rent. Together, the ANC, EFF and other small opposition parties could muster the two-thirds majority needed for a constitutional change.
The party has emphasised that while it works towards accelerating land reform, it will do so in an orderly manner.
Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Groenewald concurred with the DA's views.
In a statement released by DA Eastern Cape leader Nqaba Bhanga party said the EFF's political "schizophrenia" will only harm the people of Nelson Mandela Bay.
He said that under the EFF's proposal, no one, black or white, will own land. Agricultural economists Wandile Sihlobo and Johann Kirsten wrote last week: With the benefit of hindsight, the Zimbabwean experience tells us that the notion of expropriation without compensation is a bad idea.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is not only flexing its political muscle but is also pushing to re-establish its centrality in a coalition government‚ say analysts. "If you don't want it, you must go back to government and say I am leaving this place and you can take that which belongs to you and the government will reallocate it to someone else", he said.
