SA billionaire, Patrice Motsepe, has pledged to donate a whopping R3.5 billion towards the country's land reform goals.
The money will go towards sustainable development and the issue of land reform. Motsepe made the promise at FNB Stadium during the Global Citizen Festival.
This comes after millions have been pledged for various causes during the festival, as reported on by The Citizen.
Motsepe wishes to give hope to South Africans with his donation.
What we are going to do, as the Motsepe family, is we are going to contribute R3.5 billion rand to help with the process of land reform in this country. We want to give a moment of hope, we want to give a moment of inspiration for all of the people of this rainbow nation.
We are coming together as leaders in South Africa. We are coming together in unity as leaders and are committed to working together to ensure that the current land reform process will result in land with the requisite support and skills being made available to black people living in rural areas.
The festival worked with many organisations to bring the event to SA, including Motsepe's Motsepe Foundation.
