TAU SA, once again, as part of the ad hoc group focusing on the government’s expropriation without compensation, has just met again to reflect on the matter.
The convener of the Ad hoc group, Mr. Jaco Schoeman said at the last meeting that the future of South Africa and its inhabitants was too precious to allow the draconian idea of expropriation to continue without compensation.
In the face of worsening poverty and rising unemployment, the government persists in its pursuit of harmful and dangerous policies that provide no solutions to the socio-economic issues facing South Africa. On the contrary, policies such as expropriation without compensation further undermine fundamental economic and other structures and systems in the country and pose an enormous threat to economic and accompanying social progress.
Once again, concerns have been expressed that the government is pursuing the policy of land expropriation without compensation while there is no reliable database of land ownership in South Africa. It has been pointed out that even existing land ownership databases show deviations and differences of as much as 30%.
