Cutting Through the Noise: Land Expropriation Without Compensation

August 29, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Expropriation Bill has now been gazetted to clear the way for this. Against the background of ongoing socio-political unrest in South Africa, the issue of land expropriation without compensation has not only sparked vehement debate but has also brought added uncertainty to an already ailing economic climate.

Land dispossession has been described by President Cyril Ramaphosa as South Africa’s “original sin”, and there remains a depth of emotion surrounding the topic of land in South Africa. Land ownership is believed by many to be a crucial part of the future social and economic success of our country, but how will land expropriation take place, what are the legalities surrounding it and what land will specifically be targeted?

With the recent release of the land panel report, join us as we discuss this issue with Phephelaphi Dube, former Director of the Centre for Constitutional Rights and William Hughes, former Vice President of the Commercial Farmers Union of Zimbabwe.

Please note this event is open to Accelerate Cape Town members only.
