Public submissions land report was not leaked - Vincent Smith
A report summarising the written public submissions to the Joint Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) on amending Section 25 of the Constitution to allow expropriation without compensation was not leaked to the ANC NEC, the committee's co-chairperson Vincent Smith said on Wednesday.
The CRC met to discuss a preliminary report on the written submissions and a preliminary report on the public hearings that took place all over the country.
Speaking to Azania Mosaka, Smith says the position that the summary was leaked is purely rumour and mischief.
Mischief and rumour, because when I put it to her she was not able to say where she got it from other than from the media.Vincent Smith, Co-chairperson at Constitutional review committee
He adds that as the public representative he doesn't think that they should be involved in any tender and or adjudication.
