Malema: Hearing may as well be held at Luthuli House
Malema believes the process won't be fair because most of the committee is made up of ANC MPs.
CAPE TOWN - A Parliamentary committee investigating the conduct of 20 Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Members of Parliament in the National Assembly will continue hearings into the matter today.
EFF members staged another walkout yesterday, saying they won't be subjected to what they called a 'kangaroo court of the African National Congress'.
Before leaving, EFF leader Julius Malema read out a statement of 89 points detailing the EFF's representations.
They're being taken to task for heckling President Jacob Zuma in Parliament in August during a question and answer session calling on him to pay back the money spent on upgrades in Nkandla.
National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete had to ajourn the sitting of the house.
Malema says whatever the outcome of the process, the EFF won't be participating.
He believes the process won't be fair because most of the committee is made up of ANC MPs.
"What justice and fairness should the EFF expect in a process where the judge is the ANC, the complainant is the ANC and the witness is the ANC? You may as well hold this hearing at Luthuli House."
The committee has indicated it will continue with proceedings regardless of whether EFF MPs are present.
The MPS risk being suspended from Parliament for up to 14 working days if found guilty.
