Malema led EFF Members of Parliament (MPs) into 90 minutes of disruptions during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament on Thursday evening.

The party started off by objecting to the presence of former President, FW De Klerk, demanding he should leave the sitting.

EFF MPs then launched into their demand that Gordhan be removed from Cabinet.

Malema addressed the media outside the National Assembly, after the EFF walked out of the sitting.

"Our sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers are going to lose jobs at our State-Owned Entities (SOEs) because of one man who doesn't have capacity to run SOE's, and the president is scared of Pravin."

"EFF touches the untouchables, we go where no one wants to go," says Malema.

Malema adds that "Things are not normal and to wear gowns, ties and parade on the red carpet, create a wrong impression that the country is doing well."
