[WATCH] Julius Malema calls Pan-African parliamentarian who shouted a 'hooligan'
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…Lester Kiewit, presenter - CapeTalk
