South Africa’s parliament has approved a bill allowing the government to expropriate land in the public interest. The measure will allow the compulsory purchase of land to place more in black ownership. Most of South Africa’s land remains in white ownership two decades after the end of apartheid. The governing ANC party said the law would tackle injustices imposed by white-minority rule. However, the opposition Democratic Alliance opposed the bill. BBC South Africa correspondent Milton Nkosi says land is an emotive issue 22 years after the end of apartheid.
