The DA, ANC and EFF all fired shots at one another this week during a heat session of Parliament.

The tensions began when ANC representative, Yunus Carrim, criticised the EFF's Nazier Paulsen. 

Paulsen replied by saying, "I'll moer you," which quickly got tempers flying.

However, Carrim clearly did not reserve his criticism for the EFF. Next, he took on DA Chief Whip, John Steenhuisen.

According to The South African, Carrim referred to Steenhuisen as "pompous Little John". Steenhuisen hit back, saying that this would be Carrim's "last term in office".

Thereafter, Naledi Pandor weighed in and even rebuked her ANC colleague himself, Carrim. She then came to Steenhuisen's defense, but her comments appeared to be sarcastic.

Somehow, despite the tensions, the Traditional Courts Bills was still passed by Parliament by the end of the day. The bill will regulate how traditional courts operate when in conflict with other courts.

Both the DA and EFF staged a walkout over the bill, but it was narrowly passed when the House chairperson cast her vote.
