Jacob Zuma's presence at the KwaZulu-Natal State of the Province Address caused a delay as there were complaints about him being there. Members of the EFF and DA decided to walk out of the address.
Premier Sihle Zikalala’s KwaZulu-Natal State of the Province Address took place at the legislature in Pietermaritzburg on Friday 28 June, but was disrupted.
Members of the EFF and DA were unhappy that Jacob Zuma was allowed to attend the address, and demanded that he leave the chamber at once.
However, Speaker Nontembeko Boyce decided to reject their demand, and they promptly walked out, according to a report by IOL News.
Briefly.co.za gathered from The Citizen that KZN EFF Chief Whip and Deputy chairperson, Mongezi Twala, rose a point of order questioning the attendance of non-members in the chambers.
The EFF apparently also accused speaker Boyce of intentionally misleading the house by allowing non-members like Zuma into the House.
