EFF could stage another showdown during Zuma's Q&A session

The EFF believes it cannot be business as usual in the National Legislature while 'Zuma goes unpunished'.

CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma is scheduled to answer questions in the National Assembly tomorrow, but there could be another attempt by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to prevent him from addressing Parliament.

Sixteen EFF Members of Parliament (MPs) were forcibly removed from the house for refusing to obey Speaker Baleka Mbete's orders ahead of the Presidency's Budget Vote on 4 May.

They were refusing to be addressed by Zuma, who they have described as an 'illegitimate president' for violating the Constitution.

The country's highest court found he failed to defend, uphold and respect the Constitution in his handling of the Nkandla saga.

EFF leader Julius Malema was not in Parliament the last time MPs were ejected by members of the Parliamentary Protection Services.

He told supporters in Gugulethu yesterday that no amount of force will change the party's position that Zuma is not the president.

Malema warned, "They can kill us if they want in Parliament."

The EFF believes it cannot be business as usual in the National Legislature while Zuma goes unpunished for breaching the country's supreme law.

The party's approach has been to disrupt proceedings, to walk out, or at times MPs have just not pitched up.
