EFF urges members to come out in numbers at the State of the Nation Address #Sona2017

Members of the opposition EFF party leave the parliamentary chamber as South Africa's President Jacob Zuma delivers his State of the Nation address in Cape Town

As President Jacob Zuma prepares to deliver his much anticipated State of the Nation Address (Sona), the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has called on its members to show support for the party’s Members of Parliament (MPs) by coming out in the numbers to attend the event.

Zuma is expected to deliver his annual speech at Parliament at 7pm tonight, amid tight security.

There’s been outrage since the announcement this week that more than 400 soldiers will be deployed to Parliament to beef up security.

Meanwhile, Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane says he’s expecting a positive Sona.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the Mining Indaba in Cape Town.

Zwane says he is looking forward to the event.

“We have full confidence in our president and we will support whatever comes out of the Sona. As we’re implementers [sic] on the ground, we will ensure that what he talks about is exactly what we’re going to implement to the people of South Africa.”

  1. It would be better if EFF disturb SONA by 2 ppl per 15 or 30 minute once two have been arrested to prolong the protest.while others eff members are seated and the chair cannot say all must leave the house

  2. As a South African citizen, am really disappointed in EFF, they have no respect for South Africans, they blamezuma for this and that, yet they create mess, they are not different from Zima, a stupidan cannot correct the other stupid, we all know that Zuma is corrupt, DA and EFF should find a better way to till out Zuma, not to use the important time of all the South Africans, they also don’t have money, they do typos things getting painf from our tax money. They should find better skills to put Zuma down, because the method they are using is so stupid and it make them look like idiots and it’s shows that they do not respect our country, kids should grow up before they want to act like parents , they are not matured to rule the country, we are goin down the grave if we listen to them. They should learn to listen to the people of South Africa if they want to be heard.
