NATIONAL NEWS - A motion on the expropriation of land without compensation was adopted by an overwhelming majority in the National Assembly on Tuesday.
The vote went 241 in favour and only 81 against after African National Congress (ANC) amendments to the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF)'s motion were agreed to, including that expropriation improve food security.
Most smaller parties backed the motion, including the IFP and the NFP.
The DA, Cope, the ACDP and the Freedom Front Plus opposed it and the EFF is warning the DA that it’s opposition could cost the party.
The debate saw the ANC and the EFF come together and more co-operation is on the cards, with a plan to punish the DA for failing to support the expropriation of land without compensation.
