The ANC proposed that land ownership by women be accelerated, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday.

“This is aimed at correcting the land question to address poverty,” said Zuma, who is also the African National Congress president.

He said women were the largest group affected by poverty and inequality.

Zuma said the policy conference also proposed that land reform needed to be done in a way that would not disrupt agriculture and food security. - Sapa
