Marikana - The land of South Africa belongs to the landless, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Sunday.

"This is your land. You (the landless) do not have to pay for the land. It has been already paid by the sweat of your fathers," he said at the launch in Marikana, North West, of his political party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

He said white South Africans were still refusing to hand over the land they inherited through theft.

"Till today they (whites) are not ashamed of killing of our people. They want us to kneel before them.

"We are not going to do that. We are not going to beg for the land. Bring back the land."

Malema said that when the rich shared with the poor there would be no crime.

"If you share with the poor there will be no need to build high walls at your home."
