Malema said that they would always remind National Assembly speaker Baleka Mbete of their right to freedom of expression. Malema said EFF would fight parliamentary rules he said sought to suppress freedom of expression.
“We will forever remind the presiding officers that we are not guests of Zuma and Baleka Mbete in parliament but elected representatives with maximum freedom of speech.”
“The EFF will fight against all unjust parliamentary rules that seek to suppress freedom of expression in parliament,” Malema said at a media briefing in Johannesburg on Thursday.
But it all got comic when Malema relayed how EFF supposedly made popular the issue of Nkandla. He said, like Casper Nyovest’s Doc Shebeleza song, other parties were now singing along what he claims was EFF’s ‘song’.
“You find the youngsters singing your song, you must know you’ve reached all corners … Doc, Doc Shebeleza, Shebeleza! You must know this is a hit; it has reached all corners. That’s what we’ve done with Pay Back The Money,” Malema said.
“You have seen young kids being interviewed on social media, arguing amongst themselves that Zuma is a criminal. He steals our tax money. They have not started paying tax! But already they know that there is tax money being stolen by Zuma. Why? Because of the EFF.”
