President Cyril Ramaphosa assured the group of farm owners that land reform would happen by the book, EWN reports.

President Cyril Ramaphosa spent some of his afternoon engaging farmers and businessmen at the Beyerskloof Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch on Tuesday.

Ramaphosa assured the group of farm owners that land reform would happen by the book, reports EWN's Babalo Ndenze.

Ramaphosa did not prepare a speech, but rather conducted a question and answer session on issues such as the economy, bureaucracy and lad reform.

He came specifically to speak to white organised business in Stellenbosch, mostly white wine farmers.

He was asked about land and allayed their fears. He says land reform will happen Constitutionally. No one one will be removed from their land and that there will be no land invasions.
