[LISTEN] What can we expect from this week's Cabinet lekgotla?

The cabinet lekgotla is set to begin on Tuesday in Pretoria.

The African Natoinal Congress’ position on expropriation without compensation, VAT, fuel hikes and the latest statistics on the unemployment rate are only some of the issues expected to be central to this week's discussions.

Karima Brown spoke to Economist & Senior lecturer at Wits School of Economics and Business Sciences, Lumkile Mondi and Public Policy Analyst TK Pooe to get their take on whether the ANC's decision on land will also be adopted at the cabinet lekgotla.

I don't think it is as cut and dry as that. No one can disagree that we do need to expropriate land, what we are hoping for in this presidency would be to able to get actual leadership on the issue and say how do we go froward in such a way that historical injustices are rewritten but at the same time we are able to plan for the next ten or twenty years in terms of what type of economy we want based on the issue of land.

TK Pooe, Public Policy Analyst
