President Jacob Zuma told Parliament today that he had never
lied about the upgrades to his home in Nkandla.
This was after DA leader Mmusi Maimane demanded to see his bond,
after quoting from a 2012 statement Zuma made to Parliament, saying that
his home was bonded and that he and his family were paying for it.
According to Zuma, when he answered questions about
his home in Parliament in 2012, he had said his family had built the home, and
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius
Malema’s warned his party is prepared to meet violence with
Scuffles broke out inside and outside
the National Assembly chamber as Malema and his fellow EFF Members of
Parliament fought back against members of Parliament’s Protection Services as
they were being physically removed from the House.
Once the EFF benches were clear, Zuma
took to the podium and started answering questions, making no mention of the
mayhem that had just unfolded.
