State Security Deputy Minister Zizi Kodwa says President Cyril Ramaphosa is disappointed by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members’ disruptions to his State-of-the-Nation Address (SONA). In an unprecedented move, National Assembly Speaker temporarily suspended the sitting.
EFF members are demanding that former state president Frederick de Klerk should not be allowed to attend the SONA for recently saying that apartheid was not a crime against humanity.
They also want Ramaphosa to fire Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan for allegedly misleading him on the state of affairs at Eskom
“The president is waiting eagerly to address the nation on key fundamental issues that is facing the nation.”
Asked if the suspension of Parliament was victory for the EFF, Kodwa responded, “I don’t think it’s a victory for anybody, except that it was important that for parliament to proceed smoothly, presiding offices would have decided in every decision, that they suspend the session.”
