ANC 'not on Zim land path'

Johannesburg - The ANC will "never go down the same road as Zimbabwe" as far as land and farmers are concerned.

Thandi Modise, deputy secretary-general of the ANC, said on Tuesday that "land issues, especially those of other races (other than the one which already owns the majority of land)" need to be addressed urgently to prevent South Africa from becoming a second Zimbabwe.

The ANC said at a news conference on Tuesday that the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) will leave for Venezuela on Wednesday as part of their visits to various countries where they will look at "different models of nationalisation".

Zimbabwe land reform

The Youth League and its president, Julius Malema, also paid a visit to Zimbabwe recently, to see how the nationalisation of mines is working there. After the visit, Malema said South African land should be seized in a "militant and radical" way, like in Zimbabwe.

The ANC immediately reacted saying very clearly that what Malema is suggesting, is neither ANC nor government policy.

It could only become policy if Malema presented it to the ANC's national executive council meeting later this year, as well as to the national congress and the policy congress in 2012, and all three accept it, said ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu.

Modise said on Tuesday there's "nothing wrong with young people going to learn from other countries".

"It's good to look at our current policy and discuss the relevant issues."
