Event date: 02 November 2018
Our final members’ breakfast for the year turned out to be a great ending to the breakfast calendar, with Chamber member HSBC laying out a feast, and legal expert Bulelwa Mabasa (Director – Werksmans) delivering and excellent presentation on the topic “Land Expropriation, Demystifying section 25 of the Constitution”.
Bulelwa started off by explaining the three pillars of Land Expropriation: Restitution vs Redistribution vs Tenure Reform. Going from there, she took us through what Section 25 states and the implications thereof, which is where confusion and misunderstanding has been rife. Bulelwa – who is a special adviser to the Presidency on this very topic – answered questions and gave her views on technical aspects, providing much needed clarity and confidence in the process going forward. Thanks to Bulelwa and we wish her the very best with the task at hand!
