Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema today in a letter warned National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete that unless she withdraws plans to suspend him from Parliament by Sunday, he will go to court to seek relief.

“You should expressly withdraw your intentions on or before Sunday August 31 at 12 noon, failing which I will have no other option but to approach an appropriate forum for appropriate relief,” he concludes in the five-page letter.

It is Malema’s formal response to a letter from Mbete, sent to all 25 Economic Freedom Fighters MPs in the Assembly, to ask that they supply reasons why they should not be suspended from Parliament for up to two weeks for disrupting presidential question time on August 21.
