‘You know what Malema looks like?’ – Watch EFF leader being ejected from Parly

2015-09-10 10:19

Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema was removed from the National Assembly by members of Parliamentary Protection Services last night after he refused to retract a statement in which he called Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa a murderer.

Malema was removed after a question and answer session with Ramaphosa.

In a video clip by Media24 reporter Charl du Plessis, Parliament’s serjeant at arms Regina Mohlomi is seen having a conversation with the “white shirts”, newly recruited members of Parliament’s protection services, before they enter the house.

Mohlomi asks how many of them will be going inside. They reply “four”.

“Two of you will be able to take him out, rather … he is only one ... There is only one of him ... You know what Malema looks like?”

The white shirt reply: “Ja.”

Moments afterwards, Malema was escorted from the National Assembly, followed by EFF members.

The incident occurred after Grace Boroto, National Assembly chairperson, referred to a point of order that ANC MP Bheki Radebe made during the debate on the Marikana report on August 13, when Malema said Cyril Ramaphosa had conspired to murder miners at Marikana.

Boroto ruled that the statements were unparliamentary and that Malema should withdraw them.

Malema rose, cleared his throat, and said: “Cyril is a killer and Cyril conspired to murder!”

When Boroto ordered Malema again to retract his words, Malema replied:

“Cyril Ramaphosa is a murderer and took part in the conspiracy to commit murder. You can send me jail for that! Cyril has blood on his hands! Cyril should rot in jail!”

Boroto ordered him to leave the house.

“I’m going nowhere!” Malema retorted.

Boroto asked the serjeant at arms to intervene, and then when that failed, enlisted the services of the protection service to physically remove him.

Malema has been suspended for five days in terms of new rules adopted by Parliament.
