The Black Business Council (BBC) has welcomed President Ramaphosa's decision on land expropriation.

The BBC thinks of the president and the ANC's decision to make changes to the Constitution as bold.

President Ramaphosa announced late on Tuesday that the ANC will be making changes to the Constitution to expropriate land without compensation, as reported on by Briefly.co.za.

EWN reported that the BBC feels this decision will increase participation in the economy.

Kganki Matabane of the BBC stated that people are still marginalised after 24 years of democracy. The council is hoping that the planned changes to the Constitution will change things for the better.

The Democratic Alliance, however, does not agree with the decision and calls it reckless.

In fact, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the DA leader, Mmusi Maimane, has called on the speaker of the National Assembly, Baleka Mbete, to get the parliament together to discuss President Ramaphosa's announcement.
