Expropriation of land will not be smash and grab, Ramaphosa tells MPs
Expropriation of land without compensation will be handled in a responsible manner to ensure the country’s economy and food security are not adversely affected, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Tuesday. "In dealing with this complex matter, we will not make the mistakes that others have made. We will not allow smash-and-grab interventions. We will handle this matter in the same way we have handled all difficult issues our country has had to handle. We will always seek to do what is in the interests of our people," Ramaphosa said during his reply to the state of the nation address debate in Parliament.
