[LISTEN] UK Prime Minister Theresa May supports SA's land reform

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is on a three-day visit to Africa.

She made her first stop in South Africa where she met her with President Cyril Ramaphosa to discuss bilateral agreements.

She welcomed Cyril Ramaphosa's assurances that there would be no 'smash and grab' land grabs and that there would be land reform.

She said that the UK has for some time supported land reform - but land reform that's legal, transparent and generated through democratic processes.

Meanwhile, Chief Economist at Eskom Treasury Mandla Maleka says May's visit is well timed.

It's like we almost timed it after the Trump tweet on land reform. Here comes the British Prime Minister Theresa may saying she supports land reform. These are two leaders of big economies in the world and in the G7 space and one of them is supporting land reform and the other almost against it.

Mandla Maleka, Chief Economist at Eskom Treasury 

It could only mean good things for the country.
