The video, which is just over 3 minutes long, is a vocal statement from Maimane on the DA's position on land expropriation without compensation.

The land issue has quickly become one of South Africa's most heated topics and everyone seems to have an opinion.

Maimane said that Section 25 of the Constitution as it currently is, is enough to speed up land reform in South Africa.

Maimane went on to say that the problem is not with the Constitution but with creating a "capable state" that is corruption free.

He added that while land expropriation is an important debate, it should not be "reduced to populist slogans”.

Maimane then announced that the DA will be fighting to ensure the Constitution will stay as it is. He then challenged the ANC to give 4 000 farms that belongs to the state back to South African citizens.

EWN reported that the DA has reported the SABC's refusal to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa. They claim that the SABC failed to remain independent of political interference.
