DAILY STAR – The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77.
This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation.
And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations.
A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed.
But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans.
According to local reports, Economic Freedom Fighters MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi argued land grabs must go ahead as she declared: “Your time is up, white people”.
