EFF returns to form in parly, but Gordhan soldiers on

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) returned to form yesterday in parliament as it “dealt” with “constitutional delinquent” – Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan – by threatening him before eventually being evicted.

Even as Gordhan entered the chamber to deliver his 2019- 20 public enterprises budget speech, boos could be heard. The EFF interrupted Gordhan’s speech and when EFF MP Sam Matiase called Gordhan a constitutional delinquent, House chair Mmatlala Boroto threw the entire EFF contingent out after she asked them if Gordhan would be allowed to speak and some appeared to reply no.

Matiase then stormed Gordhan’s lectern, followed by about 14 members of the EFF, prompting the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) John Steenhuisen to stand next to Gordhan.
