EFF MP Tebogo Mokwele has apologised on behalf of the party for its role in a physical confrontation between a few of its MPs and ANC members during an induction session in Parliament.

In an interview with eNCA, Mokwele apologised for the party's role in the altercation that marred the proceedings in the Old Assembly Chamber on Wednesday. In a video of the incident, a group of at least seven red-clad EFF MPs can be seen in front of the ANC's benches, pushing other MPs around and waving their arms.
