President Cyril Ramaphosa recently shared a warm-hearted post about handing over title deeds to some local farmers from the Tafelkop area. According to his post, the handover marks a milestone in a long journey.
"Today the promise of the #FreedomCharter has come true for this community, that the land shall be shared among those who work it. The handover of these title deeds to the members of the #Tafelkop Farmers Association marks a milestone in a long journey. #OurLandOurHeritage," the post reads.
Soon many South Africans headed to the comment section where they either enquired about getting their own land or appreciated Ramaphosa's efforts in giving locals land and the deeds to the land.
Read a few of their comments below:
"Thank you very much but the pace is really really slow Mr President. Also there's vast land lying furlough that was restituted."
"Indeed, Manqondo Njinji I share the view on pace. We are now in power the pace should be faster. Furthermore, at a larger scale. Putting aside faction narrative issues it should be Rapid Economic Transformation."
"You must assist them with infrastructure to catapult their progress and production."
Briefly News also reported that Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) president-emeritus Mangosuthu Buthelezi has backed the expropriation of land and revealed that he would retire once the law has been passed.
Speaking at a press conference in Durban on Tuesday afternoon, the 92-year-old said he would bow out of Parliament once the expropriation of land matter had been resolved.
