Pretoria - EFF leader Julius Malema on Saturday called on white people to join the party to get their hands on land.

“White people must join the struggle for land,” he said.

“Only two percent of whites own land. If they want land, they must join EFF.”

Malema was addressing residents of Stofel Park in Mamelodi, east of Pretoria, during the unveiling of the party's election truck.

He said the Economic Freedom Fighters was not a non-whites party but a vanguard for the working class.

“That includes the white workers,” he said.

Malema was mobbed by supporters when he arrived at the sports ground.
