JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has promised to return the land back to its rightful owners if elected African National Congress (ANC) president.

Ramaphosa addressed a cadres' forum in Witbank in Mpumalanga on Friday.

He says he wants the ANC to come up with policies that will reposition the country including returning the land to its rightful owners.

“We want our land back and we want the land to be in the hands of our people. We’re going to make sure that land is put back in the hands of our people.”

‘INTENTIONAL SABOTAGE’

The South African Communist Party has accused President Jacob Zuma of intentionally sabotaging the ANC-led alliance when he reshuffled its General Secretary Blade Nzimande.

Zuma made changes to his Cabinet in October, which saw Nzimande being axed as higher education minister.

Addressing a cadres' assembly in Witbank, Mpumalanga SACP Secretary Bonakele Majuba criticised the president's decision.

“That is why we’re saying instead of the general secretary being reshuffled, the person who reshuffled him, was to supposed to reshuffle himself.”
