Three ministers demanded the defense minister, Nosiviwe Mapisa Nqakula, to act against the #RememberKhwezi protesters during the president's election briefing at the IEC national results centre.
Sunday Times political journalist, Qaanitah Hunter, says the three ministers, Nomvula Mokonyane, Bathabile Dlamini and Lindiwe Zulu, were screaming at the defense minister to do something to get protesters removed.
