The State of the Nation Address always delivers memorable moments and fireworks, but often for the wrong reasons.
The EFF are generally at the forefront of the controversy and the president generally has his hands full with the red berets.
Early in the piece, a hilarious moment has already played out between two MPs from the ANC and EFF.
As the ANC's Boy Mamabolo rose on a point of order, he was abruptly told to sit down as EFF political education head Mbuyiseni Ndlozi mocked his attire.
