Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema stood to attention as he was called up to be sworn in as a first-time MP on Wednesday.

Malema and other male EFF MPs, dressed in red overalls, removed their matching hard hats before taking the oath.

Women EFF MPs, dressed as cleaners, kept their headscarves on as they mouthed the oath.

MPs took the oath in groups of 10, with the first including President Jacob Zuma, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe, and Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor. The next group included Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Zuma will remain an MP for only a few hours before being formally elected president for a second term by members of the National Assembly.
