The EFF has left the parliament after delaying President Cyril Ramaphosa’s state of the nation address for more than an hour.
This comes after red berets leader had told the president that their problem was the presence of former apartheid president FW de Klerk and that Ramaphosa has refused to fire public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan.
Our biggest problem here is that the president is not listening to the call of South Africans to fire Pravin. If the president does not want to fire Pravin, this is what’s going to be our relationship with the president for the next five years.
“We will leave you with your Pravin and De Klerk,” Malema said, before leading his MPs out of the house.
This came after the EFF forced National Assembly speaker Thandi Modise to suspend proceedings on Thursday after party MPs disrupted Ramaphosa’s speech.
