A total of 241 MPs voted in favor of the motion, while 83 were against it.

Rather than providing a cautionary example, however, Zimbabwe remains an inspiration for some in South Africa, including supporters of Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party, a small opposition party whose radical rhetoric has managed to reframe political debate around the issue.

The ANC said at the time it did not agree with any form of land expropriation without compensation.

He added, however, that people's dignity had to be restored by expropriation without compensating the criminals who had stolen the land.

"The property clause in Section 25 of the Constitution states that property is not limited to land".

The land issue also formed part of a significant shift in the ANC, as the December conference marked the first time the ruling party adopted the policy of land expropriation without compensation. The national assembly, in concurrence with its upper house, instructed its constitutional review committee to review the constitution in line with the successful motion and report back to it by 30 August 2018.

The rightful owners of the land are black people.

Malema said his party will be passing a motion of no confidence in the Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Athol Trollip, after the DA failed to support his motion, which was passed with the help of the ANC. He also said that South Africans would not pay rent to the state for land, and that only corporates and foreign investors would pay rent. That left black South Africans with land that could barely sustain subsistence agriculture, while the white commercial agricultural sector thrived. According to a 2017 government audit, white people own 72 percent of farmland.

Not all of South Africa's parties supported the motion to amend the constitution.

Groenewald said he had no doubt that when government spoke about land expropriation without compensation, it was not just referring to farm land.

The opposition Democratic Alliance voted against the measure, and blames the slow pace of land redistribution on the ANC, which has ruled since the end of apartheid in 1994, but now faces a tough election next year as it has slowly lost ground to the opposition.

During an ANC media briefing on the recent cabinet reshuffle, several ANC leaders provided comment, certainty and a way forward with regards to the expropriation of land without compensation policy. Former President Zuma conceded in his 2017 State of the Nation address that "over 90% of claims are now settled through financial compensation which does not help the process at all".
