'We want Ramaphosa to remove the minister of load shedding'

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have vowed to disrupt the State of the Nation Address by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The party says Ramaphosa must remove Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan from his position.

Clement Manyathela speaks to EFF spokesperson Vuyani Pambo about their plans.

Pambo says there is nothing to talk about until Gordhan is removed.

We are going to make sure the president does not speak today. As it stands Minister Pravin Gordhan is still minister of public enterprises.

Vuyani Pambo, Spokesperson - EFF

It is important for us to remove this minister of load shedding because he is shedding darkness into our homes.

Vuyani Pambo, Spokesperson - EFF
