The Congress of the People (Cope) and AfriForum are going into an agreement regarding the issue of land expropriation.
Mosiuoa Lekota and AfriForum announced on Monday they had joined forces to request South Africans and the international community to pressure the African National Congress (ANC) government not to amend the Constitution.
Speaking to Africa Melane, political analyst Dr Ntsikelelo Breakfast says he is not at all taken aback by these latest developments.
What is interesting is the fact that some of the leaders of Cope were in the dark when the press conference was held.— Dr Ntsikelelo Breakfast, Political Analyst
When the news was broken that they are going to have strategic partnerships, I don't know whether it was a unilateral decision by the president of Cope without the knowledge of other members.— Dr Ntsikelelo Breakfast, Political Analyst
