Mabuza tries to allay farmers' fears at land summit
Deputy President David Mabuza has pleaded with farmers to trust the government on land reform.
Mabuza spoke at the opening of a two-day land summit hosted by Agri SA and Landbou Weekblad in Bela Bela, Limpopo.
His comments come after the US President Donald Trump put the spotlight on South Africa's land affairs with his controversial tweet.
More than 350 farmers have convened on a game farm in Bela-Bela to discuss land reform.
Mabuza assured farmers that the government would not make any decisions that would be harmful to farmers, the farming industry or the economy, reports eNuus journalist Mia Spies.
