On Tuesday, the EFF was victorious when the majority of MPs in the National Assembly supported their motion for the amendment of the Constitution to allow expropriation without compensation.
The motion was brought by the radical Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party and was widely supported by the ruling African National Congress, which controls nearly two-thirds of the parliament.
Parliament on Tuesday agreed to the EFF's motion to expropriate land without compensation.
"It is shocking that at the current rate it will take 35 years to finalise (land) restitution claims lodged before 1998", said Mbabama, who is deputy shadow minister for rural development and land reform.
It's been more than two decades since the end of apartheid in the 1990s, and the ruling ANC party is still trying to tackle racial disparities in land ownership in South Africa.
Groenewald said he had no doubt that when government spoke about land expropriation without compensation, it was not just referring to farm land. "We do not seek revenge. all that our people ever wanted is their land to which their dignity is rooted and founded".
He added, however, that this had to be done in a way that ensured food security and increases agricultural production, and that land had to be redistributed to those who had been dispossessed of it during colonial times. President Ramaphosa has said that he would consult financial institutions on land reform.
The DA governs Nelson Mandela Bay, Johannesburg and Tshwane through coalition votes from the EFF, the UDM and other opposition parties.

Since taking power in 1994, the ANC has made land redistribution from whites to blacks without compensation one of its main policies.
"All of us must come together and say: 'Enough is enough.' Our people must get the land".
The motion was not supported by the DA, Freedom Front Plus, Cope and the ACDP.
She said it was used to divert attention away from the ANC's failures with land reform, and was a "lie peddled by the ANC, who fears being outflanked on the left by the EFF".
The agricultural and property sectors have called for an urgent meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa to discuss the decision by Parliament to amend the constitution to make way for expropriation without compensation.
Land expropriations would trigger legal challenges, said Ralph Mathekga, an independent political analyst. "If you don't want it, you must go back to government and say I am leaving this place and you can take that which belongs to you and the government will reallocate it to someone else", he said.
Malema said this was a "warning shot" aimed at getting the DA to show their commitment to their uncompromising approach to land distribution.
