Government could hand black South African's title deeds for land without amending the constitution — expert
However, according to founder and president of the Free Market Foundation Leon Louw, the bill was unlikely to benefit dispossessed black South Africans and would instead have made them victims of state-sanctioned land seizures. The governing party, with only 200 members in attendance at the National Assembly sitting, managed to garner 204 votes in favour of the controversial bill. It needed 267 for the bill to pass.
Louw suggested the bill is unnecessary. He said government could furnish black South Africans with title deeds for land the state owns and which black South Africans already occupy.
