FMF ARTICLE - Temba A Nolutshungu
The crime situation in South Africa has deteriorated way beyond the unacceptable. It is catastrophic! The country is still recognised as the "rape capital of the world". During the two years 2019 – 2020, altogether 42,289 women and girls were reportedly raped. According to police records, an average of 116 rapes per day were officially reported. As if that was not enough, in the same period 21,325 murders occurred, meaning on average 58 people were murdered daily.

Expropriation Without Compensation (EWC) is unheard of in the open and democratic societies of the world. No society that has attempted expropriation without compensation has emerged from such an initiative with a prosperous economy. 
South Africa’s government is attempting to introduce EWC by amending s25 of the Constitution to allow itself to expropriate private property without paying for it.
See the Free Market Foundation’s submission on the proposed constitutional amendment here.
