This time on #LawFocus we discuss the controversial Expropriation Bill that has been passed by Parliament.

We kick off as always with your top legal stories of the week in Legal Hotspots.
Deputy Minister of Public Works, Mr Jeremy Cronin, explains why they are behind the Bill. Professor Ben Cousins from PLAAS, the Institute for Agrarian, Poverty and Land Reform, tells us why the Bill is good, but won’t speed up land reform. We also hear from expropriation expert Prof Hanri Mostert from UCT.

Our Constitutional Corner this week tells you about the right to language and culture.

Law Focus is produced by Elna Schutz and presented by Luxolo Matomela. Our legal researcher is Keabetswe Magano.
Stream Tuesdays 6-7pm on or 88.1FM in Joburg.
