South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) said on Tuesday an expropriation bill passed by parliament in 2016 enabling the state to make compulsory purchases of land to redress racial disparities in land ownership has been withdrawn.

The bill which had not been signed into law was withdrawn to allow an ongoing process that could lead to the changing of the constitution to pave way for the expropriation of land without compensation, the party said.
