Johannesburg -The state must be allowed to appropriate land with compensation, as set out in the Constitution, President Jacob Zuma said in Midrand on Friday.

“Land reform must represent a radical... break from the past without significantly disrupting agriculture production and food security,” Zuma told ANC delegates at the close of the party's policy conference.

“(The) conference also affirmed the proposal to replace willing buyer, willing seller with the just and equitable principles in the constitution immediately - where the state is requiring land for land reform purposes.” - Sapa
