This is the time to radically change South Africa- Jeff Radebe

The African National Congress (ANC) has launched its policy discussion documents for its conference in June.

Members of the party will now review the implementation of the current policies and propose areas for the review of policies to be adopted at the national conference in December.

There are various proposals in the nine discussion documents released.

ANC head of policy and Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe, said that the economic transformation document is identified as one of the drivers of radical economic transformation.

Among other things, the document proposes 'returning of the land to our people and supporting land reform'.

On the issue of the economy there is still a lot of exclusion of the majority of South African people.
