Stolen land must be returned: Malema
South Africa will only reach true reconciliation once stolen land is handed back to the majority.
MARIKANA - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) President Julius Malema says South Africa will only reach true reconciliation once stolen land is handed back to the majority.
Malema was addressing thousands of supporters at the launch of the Eff party in Marikana, in the North West.
Malema said the ANC is pretending that reconciliation has taken place 20 years into the democracy.
Malema told the crowd at the Marikana koppie the white minority stole the land from the masses.
He added that there's suffering because of a generational curse and the nation will only be free once the stolen property has been given back.
Malema said reconciliation cannot only take place during rugby games and concerts.
Earlier, United Democratic Movement (UDM) leader Bantu Holomisa said the country seems to be slipping and faces anarchy under the leadership of the ANC.
He said however, with the launch of the party the political play field will change for the country.
Thousands of Eff members gathered at the koppie at Lonmin's platinum mine where 34 miners were shot dead by police during a labour strike in August last year.
