South African Parliament in chaos again

President Jacob Zumas first appearance in parliament since the courts made two damning rulings against him got off to a bumpy start on Wednesday when rowdy EFF members were ejected from the National Assembly.

The EFF wrote a letter to speaker Baleka Mbete asking that Zuma not be allowed to speak in the National Assembly as he had violated the Constitution and also faced the reinstatement of corruption charges.

In the first court ruling against Zuma the Constitutional Court found that Zuma had failed to uphold respect and defend the Constitution.

EFF leader Julius Malema vowed after the ruling that Zuma would not be allowed to address parliament.

The second court ruling by the North Gauging High Court found the National Prosecuting Authority was wrong to drop fraud corruption and racketeering charges against him relating to the arms deal.
