President Cyril Ramaphosa slammed US President Donald Trump’s take on the South African land situation in an exclusive interview with CNN on last 21 November, 2018.
According to Ramaphosa, “fringe groups” lobbying in the US have led to Trump’s views on the topic, which the South African president called “ill-informed.”
While Ramaphosa did not mention AfriForum by name, he is probably referring to them as the organisation toured the US with the overt intention of influencing the country and its government’s position on the South African land debate.
Ramaphosa told CNN: “Those people overseas that are taken in by this message of whites in South Africa being under threat, they are looking at South Africa through the lens of black versus white. And South Africa has long moved away from that.
