South Africa votes to seize land from white farmers without compensation

The Herald

CAPE TOWN. — South Africa took a step on Tuesday to hasten the transfer of land from white to black owners when parliament backed a motion seeking to change the constitution to allow land expropriation without compensation.

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) has long promised reforms to redress racial disparities in land ownership and the subject remains highly emotive over two decades after the end of apartheid.

Whites still own most of South Africa’s land following centuries of brutal colonial dispossession.

The motion was brought by the radical left Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, but was supported by the ANC, which controls almost two-thirds of the parliament compared with EFF’s 6 percent.

The ANC supported the motion with some amendments.
