President Ramaphosa was speaking at the Discovery Leadership Summit in Sandton when he said there will not be land grabs.

Ramaphosa said he wants to use the "Madiba magic" that resulted in the peaceful end of apartheid.

He plans to continue discussions on the land reform issue until an agreement that will build the nation can be agreed upon.

Land reform is not only about correcting a great historical injustice; it is also an absolute economic necessity. In the end I want to reconcile the hunger for land that our people have, but also reconcile the fears and concerns of those who have land.
