Before the beleaguered Premier Supra Mahumapelo could table his budget speech on Tuesday, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) walked out of the North West provincial legislature.
Betty Diale, the Provincial Chairperson, wanted an answer to when will the EFF sponsored motion of no confidence in Mahumapelo be tabled for debate.
"We have written to the Speaker asking for a motion to be tabled for debate when is the EFF motion going to be debated?" Diale asked.
The response from Speaker Sussana Dantjie, was that the rules committee had not yet met to consider the EFF motion.
" The EFF will not be part of the budget debate," Diale said and led EFF members out.
As calls for his resignation continues, Mahumapelo is the subject of violent threats. Revealed by the premier that a plot to harm him has been reported to the police.
