National Assembly sergeant-at-arms Regina Mohlomi pleaded with Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema and his fellow MPs to leave the House on August 21, MPs heard.
Parliament’s powers and privileges committee will resume disciplinary proceedings against 20 Economic Freedom Fighters MPs, including party leader Julius Malema, who heckled President Jacob Zuma in the National Assembly.
MPs sitting on Parliament’s powers and privileges committee have been warned to keep their personal feelings out of the disciplinary process against 20 EFF politicians.
The August 21 disruption of National Assembly proceedings by 20 Economic Freedom Fighters MPs was unprecedented, a long-time parliamentary employee has testified.
After walking out of his disciplinary hearing, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema proceeded to a Cape Town hotel to interview judicial candidates.
The parliamentary disciplinary hearing over the “pay back the money” protest was opened to the media this morning at the request of the Economic Freedom Fighters.
Twenty MPs of the Economic Freedom Fighters, including leader Julius Malema, will appear before a parliamentary committee on disciplinary charges stemming from their heckling of President Jacob Zuma.
Julius Malema appeared in court last week and with him, a Louis Vuitton belt.
The Economic Freedom Fighters may take up arms if their “peaceful revolution” is met with violence from the state, says party leader Julius Malema.
The NPA has denied claims by EFF leader Julius Malema of interference in his corruption case.
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says Jacob Zuma should be the one hauled before a disciplinary committee, not his party for demanding that the president pay back the money for upgrades to his Nkandla home.
Julius Malema said he was out to prove that “it is not cold outside the ANC” and that there is life outside the governing party, which expelled him before he formed the Economic Freedom Fighters.
Economic Freedom Fighters leader appeared in the Polokwane Magistrates’ Court, on Tuesday (September 30 2014), for what was supposed to be the start of his corruption trial. The case was postponed to August 3 next year.
Julius Malema has refuted suggestions that the Economic Freedom Fighters is in bed with the Democratic Alliance.

Could you please calm down and crawl back into the beds and couches from whence you came? Yes, I’m talking to you.
It should be increasingly difficult for South Africa’s top executives to justify their enormous pay packages, given the furore over excessive pay, the country’s high level of unemployment, and the huge disparity between the highest- and lowest-paid employees at companies.
