Early this year, the Department of Public Works (DPW) published the latest version of the draft Expropriation Bill for public comment.

The State and its organs such as the SAPS have a constitutional duty to respect, protect, promote and fulfil the rights in the Bill of Rights.

Towards the end of 2012, an East Rand Grade 11 learner was arrested in Boksburg, Gauteng for killing a fellow learner he accused of bullying him.
