Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) boycotted President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Question and Answer session in parliament on Tuesday.
The party has stated they are standing against Ramaphosa because he is a “money launderer and a constitutional delinquent,”.
This was Ramaphosa’s third of the four appearances he is required to make before the National Assembly in a year, where he was outlining progress made in the implementation of lifestyle audits for members of the executive, the enhancement of service delivery to communities, and feedback on the 15th BRICS Summit in South Africa.
The EFF said that Ramaphosa and his Ministers were incompetent and kept blaming apartheid for their lack of political and ideological commitment.
“He is displaying no appreciation or understanding of the state of South Africa to realize that urgent interventions are needed. Instead, he and his administration go around blaming apartheid for their own incompetence and lack of political and ideological commitment to solve South Africa’s impending crisis.
The EFF maintains that Ramaphosa has lost all right to be granted an audience in Parliament, as he offers no viable solutions to the challenges confronting our society today. To sit in the House and listen to Ramaphosa mislead our people would lend credibility and legitimacy to incompetence, failure, and corruption,” said the Economic Freedom Fighters.
