Radical economic transformation and land reform is key if South Africans are to be “properly and fully reconciled”.

“We must consider that the failure of the land issue in a just and equitable manner, will threaten the stability of our democratic nation,” President  Ramaphosa said on Sunday during his speech on Reconciliation Day.

Ramaphosa believed accelerated land reform could also create “goodwill” among citizens.

“We cannot be a reconciled nation for as long as the majority of the people of South Africa continue to suffer from the injustices of the past.”

“Land reform is therefore part and parcel of the whole project of nation-building. It is key to furthering reconciliation in our country and is central to eliminating inequality in society.”
