EFF members forcibly removed from NCOP

Just 20 minutes into the sitting at the National Council of Provinces (NCOP), two EFF members were forcibly removed from the House.

President Jacob Zuma is answering tough questions regarding South Africa's economy there.

But before Zuma began with his responses, some EFF members argued that they refuse to be addressed by the president as he is not fit to lead the country.

EFF's Tebogo Mokwele was the first to be booted out of the chambers, after saying Zuma is not honourable and cannot address honourable members.

A second EFF MP also rose on a similar point of order and was the next to be escorted out on NCOP chairperson Thandi Modise's instruction.

Another MP raised concerns about ANC members seen to be laughing as EFF delegates were thrown out.
