Bloemfontein - The ANC will not be able to reach its target for land redistribution set at its last conference in Polokwane in 2007, President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday.
"We are not likely to achieve the 2014 target due to a number of factors such as the fundamental policy design flaws in the 'willing buyer, willing seller' paradigm," he told delegates at the ANC's national conference in Mangaung.
At the previous conference, the party set out to redistribute 30% of the country's agricultural land by 2014.
Zuma said delegates at the conference needed to deliberate on the best way to address this.
"This conference should produce a resolution that should answer the land question faster and within the ambit of the law."
