Cyril Ramaphosa est resté vague sur son plan exact pour accélérer la redistribution des terres. « Le cœur des Sud-Africains nous dit qu’il y a de la colère autour de la question de la terre. Et ça va continuer, si nous ne nous saisissons pas du problème », a laissé entendre le président. Cyril Ramaphosa répondait ce mercredi 14 mars aux questions de l’opposition au Parlement.
Il a rappelé que la priorité est de préserver l’économie, et d’assurer la sécurité alimentaire de l’Afrique du Sud. Le président assure qu’il parle avec les fermiers blancs. « Je veux bien m’asseoir avec les fermiers afrikaans, dont certains viennent et nous disent : « l’Afrique du Sud est le pays de tous, nous devons nous soutenir et trouver des solutions. » »
Un comité parlementaire doit faire une proposition d’amendement de la Constitution d’ici le 30 août.
