"The Chair has never met a Julius Malema in his life! You see parliamentarians shrink in their seats," says Lester Kiewit.

EFF leader Julius Malema shocked African leaders unaccustomed to his boisterous style at the Pan African Parliament on Wednesday.

Malema raised a point of order in a decidedly South African manner.

Acting President exercise your power as Chair of the meeting. You can’t be held to ransom by a hooligan! Don’t be scared of a hooligan! This is not his kitchen! This is not his house! Run this house! Acting President, run this house! … Why are you scared? … you are acting in a helpless manner! It’s like you don’t know what to do… We’re not going to sit here and be bullied by this guy! Exercise the rules on him!

Julius Malema, leader - EFF

Lester Kiewit interviewed Barbara Friedman about this and other trending stories from around the web.

You have a shellshocked Chairperson who has never met a Julius Malema in his life! … You can see other Pan-African parliamentarians shrink in their seats… We talk like that in South Africa! … So many older African parliamentarians took umbrage… South Africa leads in a few things and Parliamentary discord is one of them…

Julius Malema addresses the Chair, Fortune Charumbira, who took over only in March this year, this poor man sitting in the front.

One news agency said he schooled the old African leaders in how to run the Parliament.
