'I saw Malema and Shivambu using a pole to push back a security guard.'

Economic Freedom Fighters' Members of Parliament were forcibly removed from the National Assembly chamber as President Jacob Zuma began to answer questions.

EFF MPs say they are defending the Constitutional Court judgement on Nkandla, which found that Zuma failed to upload the Constitution.

Xolani Gwala finds out from EWN reporter Rahima Essop, who was in Parliament.

One EFF MP, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was tackled to the ground and was carried out by the members of the Parliament protection services. The fight continued to the corridors. At one point I saw Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu using a pole to push back a security guard.

There was so much intensity and anger. And as they pushed out of the building, someone smashed the door.

Julius Malema say they are prepared to meet violence with violence.

Malema went on to say that his party is prepared to lay down their lives in defense of this principle, that's protecting the Constitution and Constitutional Court.
