PARLIAMENT – Leaders of the Democratic Alliance and the Economic Freedom Fighters clashed in the National Assembly on Thursday during a question and answer question.
Things got heated between Julius Malema and Mmusi Maimane.
The DA leader accused the EFF of rekindling its alliance with the ANC.
“I see the old alliance between the EFF and the ANC is back together and strong,” said Maimane.
Julius Malema didn&39;t take too kindly to this and demanded Maimane withdraw his comment.
“Mmusi, you went to vote on rules with these people to beat up the members of parliament. We don’t have any alliance here with these people, you voted with them,” said Malema.
Members of the EFF then shouted at Maimane asking him to withdraw his comments but the leader of the DA refused.
The final question was from the EFF regarding when Zuma will pay back the money for the security upgrades at his homestead in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal.
Zuma insisted that Public Protector Thuli Madonsela&39;s finding that he should pay back a portion of the costs related to non-secuirty upgrades is just a recommendation.
“I think one of the mistakes some of the members are making is to believe she (Madonsela) made a judgment. It&39;s not a judgment it&39;s a recommendation that parliament must deal with and parliament is seized with the issue,” he said.
“There will be a conclusion and I will make a decision based on the discussion,” said Zuma.
