'This leaked document is calling a spade a spade'

President Cyril Ramaphosa says South Africa is going to deal with the land reform issue in the same way it dealt with apartheid by following the democratic example set by Nelson Mandela.

Ramaphosa was speaking to American investors in New York.

Breakfast Host Bongani Bingwa says there is a sense that the current ANC government seems to be invoking the legacy, the imagery and the iconography to say to the world, guys we are still the same place.

Guys, we are still the same people, we are Mandela's heirs and we are Mandela's people.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host

But it is one thing to say that, its quite another to actually live that in practice, no less than former ANC president Thabo Mbeki, saying actually no you are not.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host

You are not Mandela's heirs, you are not Mandela's people, do not claim his legacy because you have moved away from the historic mission that this party has stood for, for all these years.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host

He says former president Thabo Mbeki’s foundation has laid out strong views on the land debate in a leaked 30-page pamphlet in which the ANC is lashed for abandoning the party’s non-racial principles in its framing of the discussion.

Bingwa says the ANC's views on land reform is very clear that those views have been led by the EFF.

This leaked document is pointing out, it's calling a spade a spade and a thang a thang.
