Economic Freedom Fighters national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi is not the only one physically preparing for President Jacob Zuma’s Sona in parliament on Thursday.
A photo of deputy speaker of parliament Lechesa Tsenoli doing yoga in what looks like his house has been doing the rounds on Twitter. But it is not the honourable member of parliament’s exercise routine that has set tongues wagging, but rather the timing.
Twitter has been asking if the honourable member will also be on standby, along with the SANDF, should there be any “calamity” in parliament.

Many on Twitter, including former public protector Thuli Madonsela, found the picture funny, warning the EFF to be ready for what might happen.
Some said his routine was better than Ndlozi’s, who has been lifting weights and doing cardio to prepare himself in case anything happens. “The practice of yoga is good for maintaining calm and focus. Good luck to him,” said one user.
