Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema, submitted an urgent motion for the establishment of an impeachment committee, to the Speaker of National Assembly, Thoko Didiza. The EFF Deputy President, Floyd Shivambu says the report of an independent panel found that there was a prima facie case for impeachment against Ramaphosa for the Phala Phala matter.

Shivambu says Parliament needs to act swiftly.

Speaker Thoko Didiza said the matter would need to be deliberated upon as there was a process by the sixth administration.

“Once we’ve considered your letter we will give you a response on how the seventh administration will proceed with the matter.’’
