Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) MPs on Tuesday staged a walkout in the National Assembly while Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan prepared to deliver his speech in Parliament during the debate of the State of the Nation Address (Sona).
EFF leader Julius Malema raised a point of order and questioned why Gordhan was allowed to speak.
702 callers on the Eusebius McKaiser show expressed their views on the EFF's actions.
The Constitution says to all of us that if you are not happy with any judgment against you have a right to appeal. Why can't they wait for the court to come up with its decision? We are tired of this Parliament because we are paying them. The way the EFF is behaving is not right. The EFF is behaving like Zodwa Wabantu in Parliament.— Kenny, Caller
I felt that Malema did not respect the parliamentary conduct.— Roberto, Caller
I am depressed. Seating there and watching Parliament yesterday I thought: 'What is our option of removing the EFF?' I am mean, really! I don't see the point of the drama they created in Parliament. We need them to start behaving. I voted for the EFF and I didn't vote for this.— Connie, Caller
