Oh no they didn’t! #SonaDebate quotes that raised Parliament’s eyebrows

Eyewitness News brings you some of this afternoon’s more outrageous quotes & statements.

JOHANNESBURG - After last week's fiery State of the Nation Address (Sona) confrontation, today's Sona debate in Parliament was always going to be… robust.

Eyewitness News brings you some of this afternoon's more outrageous quotes and statements.

"They are the equivalent of snake-oil salespeople offering a quack remedy that doesn't work." - Minister Rob Davies on politicians promising a quick fix for the SA economy

"Planet Zuma is a place in a parallel universe far, far away from the lives of ordinary South Africans." - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane

"The party that used to be the defender of freedom has now become the defender of just one man." - DA leader Mmusi Maimane

"We need a president who puts the country first and himself last. You sir, are not that president." - DA leader Mmusi Maimane

"We will never sing Die Stem. We will never sing the song of apartheid murderers." - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema

"I am talking from experience. Fikile Mbalula got a call from Gupta's saying he would be a minister." - EFF leader Julius Malema

"We apologise to Nelson Mandela for allowing [Zuma] to destroy his legacy and turn this country into a junk country." - EFF leader Julius Malema

"Think, comrades, you are participating in destroying the party of Chris Hani and Oliver Tambo. You are more members of Zuma than the ANC." - EFF leader Julius Malema

"Mr Zupta, your Presidency can be summed up in three words: Umshin'wami. Nkandla. Guptas … I am leaving. I cannot debate. You are not a legitimate president. Bye bye!" - EFF leader Julius Malema

But perhaps the last word on all of the accusations flying in Parliament wasn't a word at all, but a picture tweeted by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula:
