The African National Congress (ANC) has acknowledged the reasons that have stagnated the land reform process.
This follows the Land Summit that took place over the past weekend .
Quoting the findings of the panel that was led by Former President, Kgalema Mothlanthe, the party mentioned misguided policies, insufficient budget, corruption, inefficient government systems among the reasons that have led to failure in implementing land reform.
Speaking on Morning Live ANC National Executive Committee member (NEC), Ronald Lamola denied that the land summit workshop was informed by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
EFF is one party that has been having land on the top of their agenda.
He says there is an urgent need of land in the country, “It’s not about the elections, is to respond to the urgent need.”
“We are a governing party; we cannot suspend our responsibilities because there are elections. We have to continue to serve the nation and do our job until the last day of the elections,” says Lamola.
Lamola says the ANC and NEC will decide the way forward.
