President Cyril Ramaphosa said that he will soon make public the report of the Presidential Advisory Panel on Land Reform and Agriculture.

The panel, chaired by Dr Vuyo Mahlathi, submitted its report to Ramaphosa earlier this month.

Ramaphosa said that the report would guide the finalisation of “a far-reaching and transformative land reform programme”.

He was replying to debate on his State of the Nation Address in a joint sitting of Parliament on Wednesday.

Parliament must finalize the amendment of the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation and process the Expropriation Bill which will detail how and when it can be done.
