SONA 2017: EFF and DA Interrupt President Zuma
By Lindi Sirame
As expected, President Jacob Zuma’s last State of the Nation Address as the ANC President has begun on a rocky note.The EFF wasted no time on chanting “Tsotsi” as the President walked into the National Assembly, prompting ANC members to chant back in support of their leader.
Raising on a point of order, the EFF’s Floyd Shivambu said there were more than 20 police officers dressed as parliament security who were ready to force the EFF out of the National Assembly with cable ties and injections to disable its members.The DA then followed with its point of order. The party’s John Steenhuisen asked that the house mark and recognise 94 patients who died at LifeEsidimeni
President Jacob Zuma was interrupted in his attempt to begin with his speech nearly an hour after proceedings were scheduled to begin.
