Malema justifies EFF’s behaviour in Parliament

Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader Julius Malema has justified what has been described as “unruly behaviour” following their protest in Parliament earlier today.

EFF brought the Parliament to a standstill, protesting that President Jacob Zuma is not adequately answering their questions around the repayment of the money used in his Nkandla upgrades.

Malema asked President Zuma to advise of ‘time and date’ that the country should expect him to payback the R200million that was spent on his home in KwaZulu-Natal.

“When we go to court we get chased away, they tell us that the matter is in Parliament. Where else must we go?” asked Malema who added that the protest in Parliament was their only avenue.

The Former ANC Youth League leader said that the EFF is a great opposition party and that only now can the ANC say they have an opposition.

“This is a good for SA, good day for democracy. Zuma will no longer use Parliament to hide his shenanigans.”

Malema has also accused President Zuma of not adequately dealing with issues he is faced with.

“The recommendations of the Public Protector supersedes all recommendations, this is what he did on Spytape, this is what he did on GuptaGate, using delay tactics with hopes that we are going to forget."

Malema then took a stance that the EFF did not break any laws as they have a right to protest.

“We did not break any laws. This country is what it is today because of protest.”
