#ANC ‘be­com­ing a black party’ – Mbeki

The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

IN A pam­phlet pub­lished for dis­cus­sion by the Thabo Mbeki Foun­da­tion and leaked to lo­cal me­dia, Thabo Mbeki has ac­cused the ANC of aban­don­ing its mul­tira­cial prin­ci­ples and be­com­ing a “black party”, due to its new land re­dis­tri­bu­tion pol­icy. Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa has said the Con­sti­tu­tion would be changed to ex­plic­itly al­low for the ex­pro­pri­a­tion of land with­out com­pen­sa­tion, so as to re­dis­tribute land to black peo­ple in order to tackle the se­vere in­equal­ity that still ex­ists 24 years af­ter the end of apartheid.
