So‚ what will you do with you piece of land?

Community members perform a traditional dance as they welcome a R62.5-million restitution award for the land they lost 49 years ago. The land claim committee says the award is a victory after the community lost properties, land and graves.

While the matter of land redistribution is nothing to joke about‚ this is South Africa and we probably lost all the chill when we lost the land. Now that there's talks about "getting the land back" people are already going crazy with ideas.

Even though the issue of land has been topical for some time‚ the Economic Freedom Fighters' victory on passing a motion for land expropriation without compensation in the National Assembly‚ which was overwhelmingly adopted‚ has left South Africans in a state of excitement.

The political party's motion led by EFF leader Julius Malema‚ was passed after 324 of 400 members of parliament voted on it on Tuesday. Eighty-three MPs voted against it‚ while 241 voted in favour of the motion.

Staying true to their lack of chill‚ it seems Mzansi already has some cool ideas of what to do with the land.

They also went on to make other suggestions of what the land should come with‚ such as live stock.

Although it was mostly crazy ideas at first‚ the issue of land is clearly one that South Africans have been thinking about for a long time.

In addition to wanting to develop the land for agricultural purposes‚ people shared that they had business ideas such as using it for photography and building hotels.
