ANC releases conference resolutions, re-affirms land expropriation

Published on

The governing party on Monday, 26 March released conference resolutions adopted at its 54th National Conference in December 2017.

Conference resolutions adopted by the party include the strengthening of unity within the party, the strengthening of the integrity committee and the reaffirmation of the party as a leader in society.

The African National Congress (ANC) reiterated its position that expropriation without compensation should take place in a manner that would not be detrimental to agricultural production and food security in the country.

Speaking to the media at a press conference on Monday, the party’s Secretary General, Ace Magashule said that the release of the party resolutions should be used by its members as an opportunity to introspect.

He further added that the task of the ANC following its national conference is to transform the resolutions into workable policy.

The National Assembly passed a motion last month to set up a committee that would consider a possible constitutional amendment that would allow for expropriation without compensation.

The committee will embark on a roadshow in the coming weeks in order to gather input from various public representatives on the issue of expropriation without compensation.

It will thereafter discuss whether or not the constitution should be amended.
