You cant take the Land from people who have worked hard for it. This will have a huge impact on SAs economy.

'The difference between prosperity and poverty is property. Nations prosper when private property rights are well defined and enforced. (This is why the people of South Korea are almost 17 times wealthier than the people of North Korea and are on average 15 cm taller because of better nutrition.) The State has the right to expropriate property in the public interest, for example to build dams or freeways or railways, but such expropriation should be based on fair market value decided by the courts. “Expropriation Without Compensation” is legalized theft by the State' - ZACP said it best!

Giving someone farm land is not a guarantee for productivity.
Giving someone a home makes perfect sense with responsibility to maintain it etc. Rights without responsibility is hopeless.
Taking from one to give to another without compensation is pointless in the extreme; simply repeating what caused this debacle in the first instant.
Education and skills dev and life orientation is what is needed. Mentoring and sponsorship is needed. All over the world there is and always will be poor, thats why people move...for a better life...study, strive, but destitution is avoidable through community enterprise and charity.
Government must not repeat what was done before, in order to 'turn the tables.' The tables will collapse and everyone will be grovelling on the ground. Time brought the situation to this point.. Time with good sense will grow change. Corruption is the downfall of every attempt for freedom and democracy.

Does not make any economic sense. Ownership of land acquired by buying it and getting a title act empowers the people to actively participate in the economy of South Africa. That is the only way to build a united nation with self respect and respecting each other

Simple and easy look at Zimbabwe ,anc s communist outlook now will lead to starvation for all in south Africa later... People open your eyes look at the history of any communist state.

Government owned land should be developed into towns to accommodate the masses. Existing towns and cities are already over populated and the infra structures cant handle the load. Services are already at breaking point.
Stop looting money and develope the right areas.

It will be a disaster.
Constitution already makes provision for what is required to address the problem. What is required is a responsible government that has the will to address the land problem, not a corrupt government that sees opportunity to grab land.

1. Develop the farms in the former Ciskei/Transkei. These were beautiful tea/coffee plantations etc. Bring that back to its former glory so the rest of SA know the government can walk the talk. By developing that area the world can then see the government understands how to farm profitability
2. Those farms can house a few families, and thus community farming is born, and people can share there different skills
3. There is a lot vacant government and municipal land, develop all of that.
4. Once all that has been accomplished, people will have land, food, emplo

I don not agree with this bill or changing the constitution we are not a Communist Country … or is that what you are trying to do? This will not just stop at Land but soon you will want our pension funds and our businesses! Most People work for what they want they did not get it for free from Government or try to Steel from hard working people. STOP TRYING TO FORCE US INTO COMUNISM.

That is against international law. Comunism, stealing property paid for. Stealing money.

We have paid for our current properties if expropriated we need to compensated at market related rates. We have paid our rates and taxes timeously and this should be for all south Africans who own or live illegally on vacant land. The Government needs to have a humane approach to all who live in our country. Illegal occupation of property needs to be addressed as it is currently out of hand and our municipalities and national government do not seem to have a recipe to resolve this anytime soon.

If this is alowed it want stop there.They will then find ways to take anything without compensation.If land is given to people to farm that knows nothing about farming the land goes to waist.WE have seen that with the "homelands".If there is no advisory service to help these new farmers they can not sucseed.The goverment agricultural advisory service is non exsistent.

Expropriation of land without compensation sounds irrelevant to me, the people in question are making use of the land and they contribute positively to South African economy. I stay in rural and I driven nearly the entire Limpopo roads,observed the difference between white and black farmers, white farmer uses the farm lands effectively than black farmers. Most people in black community can't even manage their gardens. During our early ages our parents were tilling the land but today only less than 10% of the black community does it. Maintaining a farm in black community is a nightmare. Just a mere fence for black community is a disaster. Let people who value the land make use of it for everyone's sake, we don't wanna end up like Zimbabwe.

We are all go to die of hunger because the farmers that do farming produce food for our country aswell as our for some off our nabour countries.The present farmers got the skills and experience.

The reason is because i saw in the media that their was people that voted multimal times and that vote Ballot that were not stamped by the IEC..and that their were voting stations that didnt open.Another reason in previous elections you could only vote where you were registered.My suggestion is to vote electronical where all voting stations were linked.That will safe time and improve cost.I believe then it could be fair.

The "privately owned" land we speak of today is land that was stolen from our forefathers. Unfortunately we can't erase that. Land redistribution without compensation is the only way to correct the above fact.

No law can ever make theft right.

Expropriation without compensation (no matter what the circumstances) can never be acceptable ever!

The legal system where each owner has a title deed on his or her property or properties has to be upheld and honoured without exception.
