Eusebius on Parly scuffle: 'Everyone's behaviour was absolutely disgusting'

While President Cyril Ramaphosa was replying to questions in the National Assembly in Parliament on Tuesday, the House was turned into a boxing ring.

Scuffles and accusations of racism by the two biggest opposition parties, the Democratic Alliance and the EFF, were followed by a fistfight between lawmakers from the EFF and a smaller group, Agang.

Show Host Eusebius Mckaiser says South Africans do not deserve this kind of treatment from our leaders.
