"Honorable minister please withdraw your statement"

2014-09-17 18:41

Honorable minister withdraw your statement; I regard this as a useless statement or outdated one that the speaker of the National Assembly  should use if she wants to control her house.

She needs to cook up a new idea.

All the stunts that the Economic Freedom Fighters is pulling in parliament are deliberate; they are aware of their consequences.

From the very first moment they enter the parliament they have thought about what to say. As long as their message has been sent, they do not mind being chased out of the national assembly.

Practical example; if someone is alleged to have committed  any kind of criminal offence, yet the have not being  proven guilty of that offence, some people will view that particular individual as a criminal. Especially if something has been published in  in the media, the press ombudsman can rule that newspapers must apologies but in the eyes of  some people you will be judged based on the first story.

What I am trying to say is when the Honorable speaker Baleka Mbete orders people to withdraw their statements, she is just wasting her time because the message has been sent and highlighted in bold.

The fact remains that they have spoken and they have been heard and the message will reach more people especially if she tries to stop them.

The ANC is now faced with fire fighters dressed in red, which are busy giving them tough time. The ANC can no longer do as they please.

Not that I agree with the way that the leadership of EFF is raising its views  in 'Parly', but I respect their intellectual approach to the ANC and the fact that they make the ruling party shake in their shoes.

The only way peace in Parliament will be reached, is with an absence of the ANC.

The main opposition party the Democratic Alliance, under the Honorable Maimane, and the  Economic Freedom Fighters serve as the best medicine to challenge the ANC in an attempt to make sure that they do not commit more blunders.
