Expropriation Bill

Die Onteieningswet is op 21 Desember 2018 in die staatskoerant gepubliseer vir kommentaar voor of op 19 Februarie 2019.    Die “wet” word so terloops voor die einde van die jaar gepubliseer, vir wat dit ookal mag werd wees, veral noudat almal met vakansie is/gaan.   Aangesien vorige besware teen die beoogde verandering van die wetgewing nie in ag geneem is nie, gaan die ANC eenvoudig voort soos dit hulle nog altyd behaag.
The Minister of Public Works has called for public comment on the controversial Expropriation Bill published on Friday 21 December 2018.  The Bill spells out in detail how land expropriation will work, detailing how valuation should be done, how disputes should be settled, and how money should be paid. The Expropriation Bill also specifically holds that “it may be just and equitable for nil compensation to be paid where land is expropriated in the public interest”.
Support or object to the Bill by providing comment below. Should you be unsure, please read the live comments, media, summary or documents below.

Closing date is midnight 19 February 2019.    The  “BILL”  https://dearsouthafrica.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/42127_21-12_NationalGovernment_116-176.pdf


The Minister of Public Works Thulas Nxesi has published the latest version of the  Expropriation Bill for public comment the morning. Spelling out how expropriation will work, the Bill specifies five different kinds of property that could justly be expropriated without compensation. The Bill also clarifies the proposed strategy for how valuation will be done, how disputes will be settled and how funds will be paid.   The Bill reveals that no property may be expropriated autocratically, in other words by random or personal whim. Here are the five kinds of property the new Bill states could be subject to expropriation without compensation:

Abandoned property

No compensation has been deemed just ‘where the owner of the land has abandoned the land’ but only in certain situations.

State-owned property

No compensation can be justified ‘where the land is owned by a state-owned corporation or other state-owned entity’.   Over 700 state entities in the country include many with large land holdings surrounding it’s various facilities.

Land held for speculative purposes

Expropriation without compensation will be appropriate ‘ where the land is held for purely speculative purposes’.

Property where the state has invested more than its value

No compensation will be considered where the market value of the land is less the the amount of ‘direct state investment or subsidy’ either spent on procurement or on capital improvements.

Farms with labour tenants

Where the land is occupied or used by labour tenants as possible qualifiers for no compensation. These tenants are denied as individuals who live or have the right to live on a farm. The Bill made provision for partial expropriation, which could possibly be used to expropriate only portions of farms.   Those affected by partial expropriation also have a mechanism which allows them to ask for the entire property to be expropriated instead.

4 gedagtes oor “Expropriation Bill”

  1. […] Terug in die hede van 2018 Eers word die Onteieningswet stilletjies afgekondig net voor kersfees nadat die groen lig gegee is – lees gerus meer.   Dit wat geadverteer is, is die “wet” maar daar word steeds gevra vir “kommentare” dat dit ‘n “draft” is – nie dat die huidige anc hulle hoegenaamd gesteur het aan die honderde duisende ander wat reeds kapsie gemaak het teen dieselfde wetgewing om die grondwet eensydig te verander nie.  Nou moet daar weer eens data aangekoop word by al die selfoonmaatskappye en aanlynkoerante, kommentare heringedien word en dieselfde proses word gevolg as die vorige sage in die jaar: Expropriation Bill […]

  3. Hoekom maak ons nie sommer n wet dat al die goed wat van ons gesteel is in die verlede ons dit sommer van enige swarte kan gaan verhaal ook nie….kom wees eerlik jul het in 100 jaar niks tot stand gebring nie en kon ook nie eers dit wat jul op n skinkbord onttvang het eers in stand hou nie. So wees nou maar onnosel en steel ons grond want dit is niks anders as dit wat jul beplan nie, en vreet rotte soos Zimbabwe en bedel by die res van werd oor slegs een jaar , want al kry jul al die grond het jul geen verstand om dit te bewerk en winsgewend te bedryf nie
