During the New Age Business Briefing this
morning in Cape Town President Jacob Zuma says what happened last night in
Parliament was uncalled for.
This as members of the Economic Freedom
Fighters disrupted Parliament asking questions regarding Nkandla which resulted
in the Speaker of the house Baleka Mbete asking the members to leave Parliament.
After the EFF members refused to leave the
house armed forces were called to remove them from the chamber. Meanwhile the Democratic Alliance also
eventually walked out of the chamber after they asked whether security forces who
removed EFF MP’s were also police, and no answer was given.
President Zuma says Parliament has a
problem and must now apply the rules of the house more strictly.
Meanwhile in terms of the energy crisis
that the country is facing Minister of Public Enterprise Lynn Brown said the
country is not in crisis in terms of energy because government has a
solution. She added that unit 6 of the
Medupi Power Station will be ready for synchronization by April.
During his State of
the Nation Address last night President Zuma announced that government will
give R23 billion Rands in the next fiscal year to stabalise the finance
situation at Eskom.

briefing President Jacob Zuma says the country needs to know that we have
police that are able to deal with crime especially the recent mall
