tweet Staff Reporter Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says his party decided not to disrupt President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address on Thursday because he complied with the red beret’s call to publicly explain himself on the R500,000 his presidential campaign received as a donation from controversial facilities company Bosasa.

“After the press conference of the EFF, the president had an interview with eNCA, answered the questions and went to the Public Protector [Busisiwe Mkhwebane] including releasing the statement he released to the public protector. This is the president who is saying to all of us, I am available to account.
That’s what we’ve been saying, the president must account and if he is not going to account for [the] Bosasa issue, we’re going to ask him here [in Parliament].“So why ask him here when he has accounted? I mean we don’t have time for the flat heads.
We made this point very clear, the man must account and if he doesn’t account, he will account in Parliament.
