WHATEVER IT TAKES: Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, talks land grabs at a briefing in Cape Town
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has offered to support the ANC if it tables a bill calling for land expropriation without compensation.
"It must come, we will vote for it," he said. "We want to expropriate without compensation. If the ANC puts a motion to expropriate the stolen land without compensation, we will vote with it."
Malema was speaking to journalists yesterday at parliament, where he named the EFF MPs who will lead the party in the National Assembly.

Floyd Shivambu will be the party's chief whip.

Malema said the EFF would not oppose "for the sake of opposing". It was willing to support "even" the DA if it tried to have President Jacob Zuma removed.

Malema had been asked whether his party would support the controversial Expropriation Bill, which gives the state powers to seize property before compensation is paid and without the owner's agreement.

The EFF wants land to be expropriated without compensation. By contrast, the Expropriation Bill allows the state and the owner to determine a price for the property. The owner can dispute the price offered in court.

Political analyst Susan Booysen said it was a clever move by the EFF to state its willingness to cooperate to advance its policies, but it was unlikely that the ANC would take Malema's radical approach to land.

Political analyst Elvis Masoga said the EFF's strong call for nationalisation was markedly different from that of the ANC, which is highly conditional.

"The final draft of the policy . strengthening the relative rights of people working on land . is meant to allow blacks who were dispossessed to have land for subsistence farming alongside commercial farming.

"That cannot be equated with expropriation of land without compensation," Masoga said.

Big u-turn on parly perks

EFF leader Julius Malema said yesterday: "If houses are being provided for members of parliament and then we decide not to go and stay in those houses [that would be] wasteful expenditure ."

In its election campaign the EFF called for public representatives to be forced to use public services, such as schools and hospitals.

Yesterday Malema said the EFF would advocate in parliament that the government "sell those houses and take the money to the needy people of Khayelitsha and then let every member of parliament buy his own house".

But until laws are passed forcing politicians to use public services "fellow fighters" will not go to state hospitals - "sending them there is like to sending them to a mortuary".

Janna. Daar glo iewers op die nuus iets oor uitlanders wat nie meer kontrakte in Suid Afrika mag kry nie. Het jy so iets gehoor ? Soos wat ek dit verstaan word dit vir n uitlander amper onmoontlik om burgerskap te kry.

Kan iemand vir ons dalk meer oor die onderwerp inlig ?

Zimbabweans' fate to be decided: | May 30, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 83 ]
The fate of Zimbabweans in South Africa with documents acquired through the special dispensation is yet to be decided, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba said on Thursday.

"The permits, now called visas, which they were granted, expire this year and we now need to decide on what shall happen going forward. We are in the process of discussion," he said in Pretoria.

"In that regard, your friends [Zimbabweans] will have to bear with me. I have been in my new job for three days and I could not have been briefed about everything," Gigaba told a Sapa reporter.

He said "a lot of thinking" needed to go into the deliberations before government announced its stance on immigrants from Zimbabwe.

The work permits issued under the special dispensation will expire, starting this year.

On several occasions, the home affairs department has said it will clarify the matter.

The department's figures indicate that almost 250,000 people received the permits under the Zimbabwe Document Project.

In March, then home affairs minister Naledi Pandor said permit holders would be expected to re-apply for their permits in their country of origin.

On Thursday, Gigaba said the controversial new visa regulations for visitors to South Africa were fully constitutional.

"We have not only tested it in both the National Assembly and the NCOP [National Council of Provinces] but have consulted senior counsels to ascertain the constitutionality of both the legislation and its regulations," he told reporters in Pretoria.

"If anybody feels that they must challenge the constitutionality of these regulations, they are most welcome to approach the Constitutional Court."

The regulations, which came into effect on Monday, introduce a new visa regime for South Africa.

The regulations draw a clear distinction between short-stay visas and long-stay permanent residence permits.

They stipulate that visa applications need to be made by applicants in person, and those wanting to change the status of their visa can no longer do so in South Africa but have to do so at missions abroad.

Several organisations have criticised the amendments to the immigration regulations, which came into effect on Monday.

Global Migration SA said the amendments were unconstitutional and could result in litigation against government.

"These new regulations may trigger a raft of litigation with respect to obvious omissions and constitutional issues," Global Migration SA managing director Leon Isaacson said in a statement.

Earlier this week, the Forum of Immigration Practitioners of SA (FIPSA) said the newly gazetted immigration regulations had an array of shortcomings which would make it impossible to apply for a work visa or any other visa

Malema wil die land terugvat en nou is dit onmoontlik vir emigrante of uitlanders om hier te kom werk.

Die DSM en Malema druk aan die eenkant en die regering verander die wette soos hulle voel aan die ander kant.

Die kompetisie tussen die faksies word elke dag interessanter.
