The Expropriation Act of 1975 is unconstitutional and needs to be replaced. However, the recently released Expropriation Bill is just as unconstitutional as the present statute. The sweeping powers in the Bill will also encourage all organs of state to resort to expropriation, thereby curtailing growth, worsening joblessness, and deepening dependence on the state. At the same time, a better expropriation bill can easily be crafted, which makes government's proposal unnecessary too.
