South Africa’s presidency will seek clarification from the U.S. embassy about a tweet from President Donald Trump about land reform, state broadcaster reported on Thursday.
Trump tweeted late on Wednesday that he would ask his Secretary of State to look closely at “the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and large-scale killing of farmers.”
President Cyril Ramaphosa’s spokeswoman Khusela Diko was not immediately available for comment.
South Africans have hit back at US President Donald Trump’s tweet on the land reform debate.
Mr Trump has asked US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to study “South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers”, according to a tweet he posted on 23 August.
The South African government rejected his comments, calling it a “narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and remind us of our colonial past”.
