The Economic Freedom Fighters is taking Speaker Baleka Mbete to court to force Parliament to discipline President Jacob Zuma for failing to uphold the Constitution.

EFF leader Julius Malema said they want direct access to the Constitutional Court.

“We have taken the decision to approach the ConCourt directly,” Malema said on Tuesday.

This is after the court found that Zuma failed to uphold the Constitution when he failed to implement the Public Protector’s remedial action that he pay back the money spent on non-security upgrades at his Nkandla home.

The EFF has been calling on Parliament to take action against Zuma following the March 2016 Constitutional Court decision.

EFF MPs were thrown out of Parliament during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) last Thursday, while demanding that Mbete takes action against Zuma.

One thought on “EFF goes to court to force Parliament to discipline President Jacob Zuma

  1. That is Respect for the Rule of Law.

    It is clear today, that Only Madiba understood the concept of the Rule of Law in the ANC Presidency since 1994 to date. The current administration clearly condemns this fundamental principle that goes to the hear of stability and public order. It seems Zuma think Public order means unleashing the military and the police to instil fear on Parliamentarians!

    Teach them EFF teach them!
