President Ramaphosa stated that there will be no land grabs. Instead, he wants to use "Madiba magic" to make land reform successful.
Ramaphosa said he will not let the planned land reform in South Africa negatively affect the economy.
The president added that he is committed to finding a sustainable and durable solution for the land issue, as reported on by BusinessLIVE.
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.
