Anyone who watched the State of the Nation address on TV would have been aware that there was a LOT of action they ‘chose’ not to air. Like this video of the EFF being thrown out.
Here’s another angle.
And here’s another angle.
This is what went down, according to iol:
Protests and violence overshadowed President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address on Thursday night as the Economic Freedom Fighters carried out a threat to confront him on misspending on his Nkandla home and were manhandled by police in the National Assembly.
As riot police dragged EFF MPs out of the chamber and down the corridor, the Democratic Alliance walked out and accused the ANC of becoming as oppressive as the apartheid regime.
It left Zuma to announce a R23-billion bailout to crisis-hit Eskom and an expected ban on foreign land ownership while most attention focused on the EFF leadership, who detailed their injuries and denounced Zuma’s government on the steps of the National Assembly.
“Whether they beat us or not, we’ll continue to ask relevant questions,” Malema told reporters in drizzling rain, the T-shirt under his red overall torn at the neck.
“We have seen that we are part of a police state where when people are unable to give political answers, political solutions to political problems, they resort to security apparatus and we’ve always said the ANC has sent South Africa into a security state, so today it was confirmed.”
And this was Malema’s response, outside parliament.
And be sure to watch President Zuma’s Michael Jackson Thriller laugh impression here.
