ANC chief whip Pemmy Majodina condemned the "hooliganism" of the EFF and praised "comrade Gordhan" for his "restraint in the face of overt provocation".

In a statement released on Friday, Majodina condemned "hooliganism demonstrated by EFF Members of Parliament during the budget vote debate by the Minister of Public Enterprises, comrade Pravin Gordhan in the National Assembly (NA)" the day before. After Gordhan made his way to the podium EFF MP Sam Matiase said the party refused to be addressed by a "constitutional delinquent".

Matiase referred to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's reports related to the establishment of a "rogue unit" at the South African Revenue Service (SARS) while Gordhan was its commissioner and the re-appointment of then deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay.
