Cape Town – President Jacob Zuma reiterated that there are weaknesses in South Africa’s willing-buyer, willing-seller principle which delay land reforms and that land restitution without compensation is under way.

“In addition, there are too many laws dealing with land reform, which cause confusion and delays,” Zuma said.
