EFF leader Julius Malema has called for workers to be given shares in all strategic sectors within the economy, including the financial sector.

He said this during his address at the party's Workers' Day rally in Alexandra, Johannesburg, on Wednesday.

This would be realised through the party's land expropriation without compensation bill, he said. 

"When we have the land, we will have the firms. The firms must belong to workers. There should not be a factory or a mine or a bank or any strategic sector in the economy, including [the] financial sector, which does not have workers as shareholders."

He added that workers were essential to the growth and sustainability of all economic sectors.
