Invasion of the land is outside of constitution

2018-03-29 06:01

As we commemorate the Human Rights month, I think we should all ask ourselves if we truly understand our constitutional rights.

I believe we don’t clearly understand them.

My heart bled over the weekend when I saw people invading land at Waterval, Midrand.

Truth be told, land invasion is disrespectful to our Constitution.

No matter how desperately we need our own places, we cannot condone such behaviour. As citizens of the country, we must always respect the Constitution, If we don’t, we will face the full might of the law.

What is the point of invading land when you know you will be removed?

We recently heard that the Constitution is likely to change to allow land expropriation without compensation.

We should be patient while allowing this process to unfold. Our people must not invade land because the law will deal decisively with them.

Let us not mislead each other. Land invasion is unconstitutional.
