Political Desk: Voters unlikely to be convinced by ANC's land plans

The ANC has realised that the slow pace around land expropriation without compensation will not be enough to convince voters ahead of the 2019 elections.

That's according to Eyewitness news reporter Qaanitah Hunter.

The African National Congress held it's first Land Summit in Boksburg on Saturday.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa on the Political Desk, Hunter says much of the discussion focused on Section 25 of the Constitution.

There was also a real analysis of what government has not been doing to implement its policies in regards to land reform.

Hunter says the topic of communal land and the issue of traditional leaders leasing land to the community was also a hot topic.

On Saturday, former President Kgalema Motlhante made a very controversial statement, where he said some traditional leaders are like 'tin pot dictators' when it comes to the land.
