President Zuma says disruption of Parliament was uncalled for

Lusanda Bill
13 February 2015

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.

Addressing crime during the business 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 robberies.
