'Land reform will happen constitutionally', Ramaphosa tells Stellenbosch farmers

President Cyril Ramaphosa spent some of his afternoon engaging farmers and businessmen at the Beyerskloof Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch on Tuesday.

Ramaphosa assured the group of farm owners that land reform would happen by the book, reports EWN's Babalo Ndenze.

Ramaphosa did not prepare a speech, but rather conducted a question and answer session on issues such as the economy, bureaucracy and lad reform.

He came specifically to speak to white organised business in Stellenbosch, mostly white wine farmers.
