Julius Malema disrupts Parliament and embarrasses the Nation
EFF’s, Julius Malema embarrassed the nation this week, when he disrupted a session of Parliament by chanting “pay back the money” in the wake of President Zuma’s failure to respond to a question. A scuffle then broke out, and the EFF people were ultimately removed from Parliament by the police.
Malema, dressed in his red overalls, was not happy with Zuma’s reply to a question about when he was going to “pay back” part of the money spent on the R246 million security upgrades to his private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.
“I will throw you out of the house if you don’t listen,” Mbete shouted at EFF members, who responded by chanting “pay back the money”.
Mbete eventually had to adjourn the House and call in security to help remove the EFF members.
While Zuma and MPs from other political parties left the chamber, EFF members remained, still chanting “pay back the money”, and insisting they would not move.
EFF chief Whip Floyd Shivambu shouted at Mbete: “You won’t remove us.”
