Johannesburg - Expropriation without compensation is “nonsense”, African National Congress MP and former minister Derek Hanekom reiterated on Wednesday morning.

“It will do very serious damage to our economy and is seriously unjust,” he said. He then joked that he is not allowed to use the word “nonsense” any more, after being sanctioned at the ANC’s policy conference on Tuesday.

Hanekom was speaking at the Agribusiness Africa conference at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, where he urged delegates to be “prepared to stand up for what is right, and stand against what is wrong”.
