MAP: See location of land hearings near you

Parliament's Constitutional Review Committee - which is looking into amending Section 25 of the Constitution, that deals with expropriation of land without compensation - starts its provincial tour to hold public hearings on the subject this week.

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 towns.

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.
