Thohoyandou – The country needs to be shared in South Africa so everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of what it has to offer, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Saturday.
"We need to make sure that everything we have in our country is shared … It should never be so that a small group of people just take what this country has to offer and say it only belongs to them," he said on the Biodiversity Economy Innovation conference in Thohoyandou in Limpopo.
South Africa belonged to every resident who lives there. "All of this is all of us, and this is what this government wants to know for sure," he said with loud cheers.
When he was in parliament this week, Ramaphosa said that expropriation of the land could make more land available for cultivation and the process would start with the use of land from the state, not from private land.
It was necessary to address the historical injustices of the country, which could be done in a lawful way that would not endanger the economy or food security, Ramaphosa said.
