Johannesburg - Private landowners and some of the big mining companies have already donated large tracts of land ahead of the implementation of expropriation without compensation, the ANC says.
On Sunday the governing party said the donations were important to ensure that its land expropriation without compensation plan went ahead without any major hurdles.
The party said the donations would be used for human settlement and small-scale farming.
Ronald Lamola, a member of the ANC economic transformation sub-committee, made these disclosures when the economic transformation committee was briefing the media at Luthuli House on Sunday on its plans to implement the ANC manifesto ahead of the May 8 national elections.
Lamola was responding to a question about when the ANC would implement its programme of land expropriation without compensation.
