South Africa: Hearings kick off in Cape Town on proposed land expropriation

Scuffles erupted at a public hearing in Cape Town on Saturday, over South African President Cyril Ramaphosa's proposed amendment regarding the expropriation of land without compensation. If the amendment is passes, the state will reportedly have a constitutional right to expropriate land without compensation, reports say, prompting mixed reactions. «The wrongs of the past must be corrected. If... Еще it is not addressed, no remedy can be found for historical disadvantage. Apartheid continues via the market,» said Brenda Skelenge, member of South African Homeless People's Federation. The large turnout at the hall saw many remain outside, where speakers also took turns to have their say. «That government is compiling this new legislation in counter of the agreement that they've signed at the United Nations, which is very discriminatory at this point in time,» said the Chief of the Griqua tribe.
