Let South Africans meet on your land expropriation decision Mr Ramaphosa!

Mr Bantu Holomisa, MPUDM President After a plenary debate, so furious as to have threatened the collapse of its conference last Wednesday, the African National Congress (ANC) announced a decision to allow for land expropriation without compensation… subject to a “sustainability test” to ensure that food security is not threatened, and the economy not undermined.
