EFF not shaken after 'assault by unidentified bouncers', says Dali Mpofu

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF's) National Chairperson Dali Mpofu says the party is not deterred by the Parliamentary Protection Services attempts of assault.

This comes after EFF Members of Parliament (MPs) were forcibly removed from yesterday's National Assembly sitting when they tried to prevent Zuma's address.

When you have a matter of principal, the fact that you're going to be assaulted by unidentified bouncers cannot deter you from the principal.

Dali Mpofu, National Chairperson of the EFF

The EFF had failed in its legal bid to have National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete interdicted from evicting its MPs.

The opposition party has reiterated its view that President Jacob Zuma is no longer the legitimate leader of South Africa.

Mpofu says that the party will not recognise Zuma as the president of the country until subjects himself to a disciplinary process or impeachment process.

He must prove that he's innocent. Until then, he's not the president of this country.
