- Julius Malema has said that the EFF will continue to disrupt Pravin Gordhan's speeches
- This comes as the EFF leader continues to be highly-critical of Gordhan
- Malema recently accused the Public Enterprises Minister of defending the "white status quo"
EFF leader Julius Malema has promised that the Red Berets will disrupt Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's next Parliament appearance.
This comes after the EFF interrupted Gordhan's budget speech last week, yelling that the minister was a "constitutional delinquent".
Gordhan, however, has said that he will not allow the EFF to intimidate him.
"Intimidation of this kind, let me say very clearly and categorically, is not going to intimidate me and stop us from fighting the good fight," Gordhan said, according to Times Live.
Malema made his pledge to continue to disrupt Gordhan's speech in a tweet.
"I will unashamedly be leading the #44Battalion from the front," Malema said, referring to their plans to interrupt Gordhan.
The EFF has been highly-critical of Gordhan in recent weeks. They have sided with Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane in her legal battles with the Public Enterprises Minister, even instructing their lawyers to assist Mkhwebane, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
The EFF has also slammed Cyril Ramaphosa for failing to take disciplinary action against Gordhan, despite Mkhwebane recommending that he do so.
In particular, Malema has accused Gordhan of defending the "white status quo". In a tweet, the EFF leader said that Gordhan "was deployed to derail the liberation movement".
