President Jacob Zuma’s question session descended into chaos on Tuesday, as opposition parties called for him not to be allowed to speak

Cape Town – .

The Economic Freedom Fighters and the Congress of the People both walked out of the National Assembly, refusing to be addressed by Zuma.

“We’ll come back when the criminal is gone, we are not going to listen to the criminal,” EFF leader Julius Malema said on Tuesday.

Zuma's session in the National Assembly was first marred by the Congress of the People’s refusal to allow him to speak, with Willie Madisha disputing the president’s ‘honour’.

Cope said Zuma should not be allowed to speak, referring to the Constitutional Court ruling, which called on him to pay for his Nkandla homestead.

After Cope walked out, refusing to be addressed by Zuma, the Economic Freedom Fighters then took up the fight, referring to Zuma as a criminal while the Democratic Alliance referred to him as “repugnant”.

EFF MP Floyd Shivambu said they could not let a person who had committed a crime to address the house, it was a basic principle.

African National Congress’ Jackson Mthembu said the president was not there to be ridiculed.
