Parliament - Tempers rose in Parliament for a third day as MPs debated a motion by African National Congress (ANC) chief whip Jackson Mthembu for the legislature to ensure a constitutional amendment to allow land expropriation without compensation is adopted before the 2019 elections.
The motion was adopted with 183 votes in favour and 77 against. There were no abstentions.
Opposition parties had objected vehemently, with the Freedom Front Plus's Anton Alberts reiterating the party's threat that land expropriation would lead to instability.
"When the blood flows it will be on your hands," Alberts said in the direction of the ANC benches.
The Congress of the People's Deirdre Carter urged voters to go to the polls to "stop the ANC, stop the EFF, the only way you can do it".
