PRETORIA - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has reiterated his call for land expropriation without compensation.
Speaking at the launch of the EFF's 168-page elections manifesto at the Giant Stadium in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria on Saturday, he said, "The land is coming back to our people whether they like it or not.
"We are going to amend section 25 of the Constitution to allow expropriation of land without compensation. We won't pay them. They took our land by force, they killed our people, they raped our people, they stole the land. We cannot reward murders.
"We want our land back, that issue is non-negotiable. The land must be owned by the State. There will be land council, that land council is where you will go and ask for land and you explain what you want to do with the land," he said.
A number of Pan Africanist Congress of Azania supporters were also in the 18,000-seat stadium, which was filled to capacity with some people standing on the grass.
