Cape Town - EFF supporters and police tussled in the parliamentary precinct on Tuesday after party leader Julius Malema led MPs out of the National Assembly during a question-and-answer session with President Jacob Zuma.

Cope and EFF MPs walked out of the National Assembly on Tuesday, refusing to listen to Zuma.

They returned to their offices after exiting the House. About 100 supporters stayed in the precinct and started chanted as they made their way down Parliament Street.

Police were quick to demand they leave the premises, but they refused. Officers tried to herd the supporters as they made their way back up Parliament Street, resulting in heated words exchanged and a few scuffles.
