JOHANNESBURG - The contentious issue of land reform nearly collapsed the African National Congress (ANC) elective conference at Nasrec, Johannesburg. 

According to the ANC&39;s head of Economic transformation, Enoch Godongwana the debate about land reform was very heated but did not lead to violence. 

 

 

ANC spokesperson, Zizi Kodwa slammed a Sunday Times journalist for tweeting that there has been violence at the party&39;s elective conference in Nasrec, Johannesburg.

Qaanitah Hunter tweeted that there had been a scuffle in a closed-door plenary session about land reform.

 

 

Kodwa took South African Editor&39;s Forum chairperson, Mahlatse Gallans to task over journalists not confirming their information with the ANC.

Hunter, however, responded to Kodwa&39;s criticism by tweeting a video of a scuffle inside the ANC plenary.

 


 

According to Godongwana, the ANC will make amendments to the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
