There is no one in SA targeting white people or farmers. Crime is happening in all our communities," Diko said.The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) hauled officials of the US embassy in South Africa to convey its "unhappiness" over the tweet. Dirco said at the time that the tweet was based on false information and lobbying by certain South African lobby groups that wanted to "derail and frustrate" the land redistribution programme.The tweet followed a trip by lobby group AfriForum to the US. They claimed Trump's tweet was a result of their lobbying.In the interview, Ramaphosa said there was also no land grabs in the country."We are involved in a process of discussing land reform. Land was the original sin in the history of South Africa. We are seeking to put right what was done wrong many years ago... when the majority of the land mass of the country was appropriated by a minority," he said.
