Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has warned President Cyril Ramaphosa not to "bluff" about the expropriation of land without compensation.

He was speaking in Parliament on Monday, where parties are debating Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address (Sona).

On Friday, Ramaphosa said expropriation without compensation must be done in a way that increases food security and agricultural production.

Malema says no conditions should apply.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it supports a pledge by President Ramaphosa to reduce the size of his Cabinet.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane called on Ramaphosa to reshuffle ministers he says have contributed to a corrupt system.
