Parliament, Friday, 16 October 2020 – The Ad Hoc Committee to Initiate and Introduce Legislation Amending Section 25 of the Constitution today met to finalise its programme of public hearings for the remaining provinces.
The committee will next week resume hearings in two groups. The delegation of Group A will commence its public hearings in Limpopo Province, whilst the delegation of Group B will commence its public hearings in the Northern Cape Province on Wednesday, 21 October 2020.
Chairperson of the committee, Dr Mathole Motshekga, highlighted the importance of concluding the process as speedily as possible, stating that the committee is dealing with a sensitive matter that needs to enhance peace and social cohesion.
