Parliament's Constitutional Review Committee - which is looking into amending Section 25 of the Constitution, that deals with expropriation of land without compensation - will embark on a provincial tour to hold public hearings on the subject from next month.

From June 26 to August 4, the committee will - in two teams - travel to the nine provinces, where they will hold at least three meetings per province in different venues.


Parliament goes into recess from June 15 for two months, and will only return in mid-August.

The breakdown of  the tour by province is:


Province                                            Date                                Number of meetings

Northern Cape                                   June 26 - 30                    Four meetings

Limpopo                                             June 27 - 30                    Four meetings

Mpumalanga                                      July 02 - 04                     Three meetings

Free State                                          July 02 - 04                     Three meetings

North West                                         July 17 - 19                     Three meetings

KwaZulu-Natal                                   July 18 - 21                      Four meetings

Eastern Cape                                    July 23 - 28                      Four meetings

Gauteng                                            July 26 - 28                      Three meetings

Western Cape                                   August 01 - 04                 Five meetings

Members of the public can still make written submissions to the committee, either by letter or email, before June 15.

Details on how to submit a written submission can be found on Parliament's website HERE.

There will also be one final phase for oral submissions in Parliament from August 7 to 17. Presenters will be invited based on the submissions received.

A date for a colloquium with experts, academics, policy makers, faith-based groups, the South African Local Government Association and many others was also in the pipeline.
