African National Congress President Cyril Ramaphosa has reiterated that the party will push ahead with its agenda to expropriate land without compensation.

Ramaphosa assured that the policy will be implemented in a manner that will not cripple the country and destabilise the agricultural sector.

The ANC President spoke during a visit to the Zulu King at his kwaNongoma residence. The visit included the newly elected ANC Top 6 leadership.

During his speech, the ANC President touched on the party’s renewal. This as the ruling party faces arguably the biggest internal crisis and divisions since its formation.

The ANC leadership will on Monday embark on a visit to the homes of the late ANC presidents buried in KwaZulu-Natal.  They will be accompanied by party provincial chairperson Sihle Zikalala and other provincial leaders.

The newly elected top 6 will pay homage to founding president John Langalibalele Dube.  They will also visit the grave site of Chief Albert Luthuli as well as Josiah Gumede.

The visits are part of the ANC’s programme of ensuring that they pay respect to those who played a role in establishing the party.

The various visits come ahead of the January 8th address. The celebration will see Ramaphosa outline the party’s agenda for the year ahead.
