South African farming organization Agri SA has criticized government plans announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday to amend the constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation.The African National Congress (ANC) party had said in May it would “test the argument” that land redistribution without compensation is permitted under current laws.”It has become pertinently clear that our people want the Constitution to be more explicit about expropriation of land without compensation as demonstrated in the public hearings,” Ramaphosa said on Tuesday in a recorded address to the nation.In a statement, Agri SA president Dan Kriek said the organization was currently in a consultation process where South Africans are participating in a process of review, and this week’s announcement “serves only to undermine the process underway”.”SA needs more black farmers and black farms. Constitutional amendments – and even worst-case expropriation without compensation – may make for good electioneering but it doesn’t make more black farmers,” he said.last_img
