CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - Britain supports South Africa's land reform program provided it is carried out legally, Prime Minister Theresa May said in Cape Town on Tuesday, adding that she would discuss the issue with President Cyril Ramaphosa.

"The UK has for some time now supported land reform. Land reform that is legal, that is transparent, that is generated through a democratic process," May told reporters.

"It's an issue that I raised and discussed with President Ramaphosa when he was in London earlier this year. I’ll be talking about it with him later today."
