[LISTEN] Solly Msimanga: Expropriate land at market related prices

Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane and member of the Democratic Alliance Solly Msimanag is eying the top seat in Gauteng.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane announced that Msimanga is the DA's candidate for Premier of the economic hub of South Africa come 2019.

Msimanga beat DA MPL and former youth leader Makashule Gana and Ghaleb Cachalia to become the party’s provincial candidate.

Msimanga might go head to head with incumbent Premier David Makhura of the ANC.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser on the show, Msimanga touched on the successes he has made at the City of Tshwane and what he hopes to do for the province.

He says he agrees with Premier Makhura that e-tolls should go and they were not supposed to have been introduced in the first place.

E-tolls need to go without a blink of an eye. They shouldn't have been there in the first place. There should have been an alternative way of paying for the roads.

Tapping into the much-heated debate of land expropriation without compensation, the aspiring premier says black people need to be emancipated and economically activated.

People should own land in their own right.

Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane

We are saying that if you are going to have land that is going to be expropriated, let whoever is on that piece of land continue to use that land and then you are able to generate income and the people that are supposed to be benefitting from that land can then benefit.

Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane

What we need to do is a clear land audit. You are able to say which one is good for agricultural purpose or residential purposes etc.

Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane

I'm totally against big pieces of land being owned and nothing happens on it. Whether its government owner od privately owned.

Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane

We are for expropriation with compensation.

Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane

Msimanga says the guiding principles for expropriation with compensation would be market-related.
