'Malema is like Hitler'
Buti Manamela has likened Julius Malema to like Adolf Hitler - a dictator in the making.
CAPE TOWN - African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament (MP) Buti Manamela has caused an uproar in Parliament by likening Julius Malema to Adolf Hitler.
Speaking during a debate on the presidency's budget vote, Manamela dismissed the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) as a personal project of Malema's to get political power at all costs.
Deputy speaker, Lechesa Tsenoli, battled to keep the house under control as EFF MPs launched a barrage of objections.
Manamela painted Julius Malema as a dictator in the making.
"Here before our eyes, not Eugene Terreblanche as honourable Mmusi Maimane suggested earlier on, but Adolf Hitler has come back from the dead."
Manamela also accused Malema of being an EFF dictator who was worshiped by his MPs.
Tsenoli insisted on seeing a transcript of what Manamela said before making a ruling.
Earlier, President Jacob Zuma was urged to 'lead, or step aside' by Maimane.
The DA parliamentary leader lashed Zuma for failing to provide strong leadership at a time when the country faces enormous challenges.
"Mr President, lead or step aside."
