Speaking to Stephen Grootes on the afternoon drive show, Manyathela says during the press conferences that immediately followed the 54th national conference; the ANC was careful in its words when referring to big issues such as land expropriation without compensation.

Ace Magashule says they will not be going back or compromising on land expropriation without compensation. In fact they will be they will continue to forge ahead with that resolution from conference. They will be holding a land summit very soon.

The ANC says...we are still getting there, we will hold that land summit as soon as possible.
