Following a meeting of party delegates, the head of the ANC's economic transformation committee Enoch Godongwana told reporters the ownership of the South African Reserve Bank would not affect the regulator's independence.

He said the party had also agreed to initiate amendments of the constitution to achieve land expropriation without compensation, but gave no timeline. He said there would be no illegal occupation of land.
