Tuesday was an awkward day for the Economic Freedom Fighters. During the National Assembly, the EFF's Deputy President was treated to the same chant his party threw at Jacob Zuma.

Members of Parliament started chanting "Pay back the money!" when Shivambu took to the podium during the debate on the Competition Amendment Bill.

Shivambu said imitation is the best form of flattery, according to a report by News24. He remained unphased as the words made famous by the EFF was chanted.

This comes after the Parliament's Joint Committee on Ethics and Members' Interests has confirmed it will investigate Floyd Shivambu.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the DA asked Parliament to investigate Shivambu after his brother, Brian Shivambu, was linked to the collapsed bank.

Shivambu denied receiving R10-million from his brother, Brian. It has been alleged that Brian received R16-million from the bank. He claims it was for consultancy work done for Vele Investments. Vele Investments is the majority shareholder in VBS Mutual Bank.

The EFF still insists that Shivambu is innocent.
