ANC bussed in hooligans: EFF

By Sapa | 2014-08-28 07:09:04.0 | COMMENTS [ 358 ]

The EFF maintains that the ANC organised "hooligans" to attack its MPs outside Parliament despite the ANC chief whip denying this, the party said on Wednesday.

"When the EFF released a statement this morning, the ANC, through its Chief Whip's Office, said the EFF is 'imagining things, and this is a figment of their imagination," said spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.

"Yet later today members of the ANC were reportedly singing "shoot Malema" in scores outside parliament demanding to be allowed into the chambers."

African National Congress Chief Whip Stone Sizani earlier said claims that the ANC bussed a group to Parliament to assault EFF MPs was "laughable and desperate".

"Such a claim can only be an invention of an overzealous imagination and an uncreative publicity strategy probably aimed at diverting attention from real acts of hooliganism that took place in Parliament [last] Thursday," he said in a statement.

"Mobilising supporters and MPs to cause chaos in the institution is a dirty modus operandi for which the EFF, not the ANC, is infamous and proud."

The public gallery of the National Council of Provinces was packed with ANC supporters on Wednesday afternoon as Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa answered questions in the House.

Sizani said for years the African National Congress had been encouraging the public to visit Parliament and observe proceedings.

"They have always done this peacefully."

The City Press reported that about 200 ANC members chanting “Dubula uMalema” (shoot Malema) arrived in Parliament claiming they were there to defend the ANC from the EFF and its leader Julius Malema.

Supporters sang struggle songs, warning Malema and the EFF not to try and disrupt the House in the way they did when President Jacob Zuma answered questions last week.

"We are here to defend democracy and this Parliament. We can't, when we have struggled so much, allow hooligans and criminals like Malema and his EFF to undermine our party. We will never allow that," the paper quoted one protester.

Earlier Ndlozi said his party had learnt the ANC was "mobilising hooligans" in the townships of Cape Town.

"The EFF has learned that they are loud-hailing across the townships, promising people free buses to go to Parliament and deal with the EFF," he said.

Ndlozi said this was a "clear plan" to disrupt Parliament and render its work dysfunctional.

"It means the ANC is planning to undermine the very Parliament that it claims to protect and respect."

Ndlozi said members had to be escorted and guarded by police all the time in case "they [ANC] unleashed the planned hooliganism or disruption against members of parliament.

He said the ANC had to live with the reality that the EFF was in parliament both by law and popular will.

"Organising the police, military or any hooligans to deal with us will not work. They must come face us themselves in the benches of parliament through robust discourse. They must stop protecting the executive, avoiding accountability and running away from questions and

hiding behind hooligans," he said.

This has now officially turned into very banal farce.

The EFF and the ANC are both known for bussing in their supporters....What is good for one is good for the other....The current situation could be defused if the honourable President will stop ducking and diving the Nkandla issue and start acting like a true leader of a true law abiding democracy.

The reason I despise this ZANC governot and every lousy supporter is because they are violently breaking the centuries old effort to create trust between ruler and ruled leader and led. Thousands of years of human experience, knowledge wisdom , error and success has been thrown down the sewer for two reasons; greed and GREED. The greed for money and the GREED for unlimited power. You people will have so much to answer for when the judgment of history is decided. Sies on you all.

hey Broer MotS just cos you like cross dressing doesnt mean everyone does. So enough of the madam talk. What is truth exactly? In its simplest form it is the opposite of untruth. If you know what untruth is then truth is easier to define. If a guy says "I paid for it out of my R 20 000 salary which is all I get" and then winds up admittedly owing 16 million in tax. The we who are not mentally deficient know he has made an UNTRUTH. The TRUTH then is that this guy is a liar. This is an age old question that has puzzled many deep thinkers but the methods not that hard if you are honest.

This last round in parliment they were frustrated by the ANC, they just wanted an answer to a question. Parliment is for talking questions and answers. Even if its awkward subjects the stuff must be discussed. To try and block questions is not right.

"If EFF behave in parly, ANC supporters won't get upset with them" ... If ANC parliamentarians stop dodging questions in parliament, EFF wouldn't get upset with them.

There is no good excuse for busing people in to intimidate others into submission. Excusing it is agreeing with the concept that intimidation is okay and that resorting to violence is acceptable

In case you haven't noticed, bonehead SA is already holed under the waterline. 0.6% growth for the most evolved economy on the continent. Just because people like you are so filled with greed and/or stupidity. When you allowed the hooligans to defend ZUPTA during the rape "trial" it was the beginning of the end. But you will still pay in blood for sailing the ship without the competence to do so. The worst is still to come but it is coming fast.
