What is Land Reform in SOuth AFrica?

A few weeks ago in March 2018; we did two blogs on the topic of Expropriation without Compensation. What is the background to this issue?”  In those first two blogs, we concentrated on our interpretation of section 25 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
This blog, therefore, explains what expropriation is in terms of South African Law, with reference to the current political environment and a focus on the present dispensation’s renewed vigour to speed up and enhance land redistribution and amend the Constitution to permit expropriation without compensation.

“Expropriation without compensation.”

One of the hottest political topics during this last 2 weeks has been the debate on “Expropriation without compensation.”

What is Expropriation? Part 1

The definition of the verb “expropriate” is usually couched as follows: “To take possession of (property), especially for public use, thus divesting the title of the private owner eg the government expropriated the owners land for a road, electricity pylons or for a public recreational area. In plain words, it means “to take something from one person’s possession for another one’s use and benefit.”

Expropriation without compensation. Part 2

Section 25 subsection 4 reads:
“For the purposes of this subsection:-
(a) The public interest includes the nation’s commitment to land reform and to reforms to bring about equitable access to all South Africa’s natural resources; and
(b) Property is not limited to land.”
This subsection clearly refers to the need for land reform and also the need for equity and fairness so as to allow all South African’s access to land, our natural resources and other property over and above land.

What do we know about Africa Elephants?

Here is 6 Elephant facts


The elephant is the largest land mammal on our planet – but it might not be with us for much longer!  Numbers have declined for a number of reasons, not least hunting but the biggest threat they face right now is through human population growth that encroaches their grazing land. They literally have nowhere left to go.

Legal Advice - How do I cancel a sale agreement?


Do you ask yourself these questions?

  • What grounds do I need to cancel a sale?
  • What process must I follow?



We get enquiries on a regular basis from people who after they have bought an item are unhappy with the purchase.

In these circumstances one has to distinguish between “buyer’s remorse” and a valid legal ground to cancel a sale.

If there is nothing wrong with the item; you cannot cancel the sale.

If there is something wrong with the item; you may well be able to cancel the sale.

There are two ways to do this.

The first basis for cancellation could be in terms of the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA).
