When CIC Sello Malema said, “The ANC government has massacred the people of Marikana” he was asked to withdraw his statement.
After several attempts by the chairperson of the house, honourable Thandi Modise to ask honourable Malema to withdraw his statement. The young and fearless leader of this country maintained his statement and he was requested to leave the parliament.
He was followed by other Economic Freedom fighters’ (EFF) members of parliament. On the sameday the chief whip of the EFF commissar Ntsako Shivambu made raised good comments and advices to the SONA made by the president of the Republic of South Africa his Excellency, honourable Mr. President Zuma.
Various other EFF members also raised serious issues and advices on what should be done to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation chose to report only on what they call misconduct by Mr. malema. Why when the police have reduced crime it is reported as part of the ANC-led government’s achievement on crime reduction but when it is the bad they say it is unparliamentary.
