Withdrawal of expropriation (ch.8)
I request withdrawal of this Bill in its entirety, as it defies various established principles of SA law (such as the timing of the transfer of land ownership) and would thus create excessive complication and difficulty. In any event, the concept of expropriation is already sufficiently addressed in the Constitution.

Our constitution as it currently stands is totally adequate to address matters. The proposed changes open the doors for overly wide interpretation of what my may expropriated (it is not restricted to land at all); puts the powers of decision into the wrong hands by taking the judiciary process as it currently stands away and totally lines up with communism in its outworking. There has been much land already expropriated and little of it has been transferred to any previously disadvantaged party.

Powers of Minister to expropriate (ch.2)
The state can do with state owned land what it wants but not with privately owned property that we have bought with our hard earned money.

Compensation for expropriation (ch.5)
The current bill opens the door for state interference with different types of property and can impact all property owners. It is firstly unfair to landowners and secondly will scare off investors at a time the country can least afford it:

Private ownership of assets of any kind is the foundation of a nation's economic welfare and financial prosperity. Any citizen denied the right to own and utilize assets of any kind is deprived of the opportunity to grow those assets and thereby contribute to the economic welfare and financial prosperity of the entire nation.
