Parliamentarians are discussing a plan of action for crafting the amendment to Section 25 of the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
Parliament’s ad hoc committee met for the second time on Thursday, reports EWN's Babalo Ndenze.
The committee was established in December last year following six months of public hearings.
The committee was briefed by Parliament's legal services team and the committee discussed the programme of action that will follow.
The committee will get a draft bill from Parliament's legal services and will then discuss whether it's accurate. There is a process.— Babalo Ndenze, Parliamentary correspondent - EWN
Ndenze explains that the lengthy process has been broken down into various weekly agendas for the committee.
In week 3, they are proposing a presentation from the Land Claims Court on their experiences over the past 25 years.— Babalo Ndenze, Parliamentary correspondent - EWN
In the 4th week they will be getting briefings from legal experts who have worked on the land issue before and other Constitutional experts.— Babalo Ndenze, Parliamentary correspondent - EWN
The Constitutional amendment will not be finalised before the general elections scheduled for 8 May.
