'Bye bye!' - Watch Julius Malema and EFF walk out of SONA debate

2016-02-16 17:27

After delivering his address at the State of the Nation debate in Parliament on Tuesday, EFF leader Julius Malema led his party out of the National Assembly. Watch.WATCH

Parliament - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema on Tuesday refused to speak about what he called an "illegitimate" president's State of the Nation Address (Sona).

"We do not recognise him due to his incapacity, lack of direction, association with criminal elements, unaccountability," Malema said during the Sona debate.

The firebrand leader told President Jacob Zuma he was incapable of being a president.

He went on to list a number of so-called errors of judgement, often hitting below the belt.

"This is a man who knowingly had sex with an HIV-positive woman and said a shower cures it.

"This is a man who knowingly impregnated a friend's child, knowing he had other wives at home. This is another sign of your misjudgments," Malema said.

Others listed were the appointment of ministers who were said to have close relationships with the politically-connected Gupta family, and the "disastrous" changing of the finance minister.
