[WATCH] Ramaphosa congratulates Malema, says 'jealous down'
Ramaphosa met Malema in Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday as members registered ahead of Wednesday's swearing-in ceremony.
The two men appeared very jovial and cordial ahead of the start of South Africa's 6th Parliament session.
The EFF was among only a few parties that had contested in a previous election and improved their performance in the 2019 elections, securing 44 seats, and Ramaphosa congratulated him.
He told Malema 'you guys did well, jealous down.' and Malema thanked him. Floyd Shivambu in the background seems to find the interaction very amusing and all three shared a good laugh.
Let's see if ANC-EFF relations remain as cordial in Parliament.
