I’m certain the ANCs will hail the Democratic Alliance Party for this. The DA is insisting the fighters (EFF) pay for disrupting Parliament.
Parliament’s clean-up and repair costs following EFF violence and destruction on the precinct yesterday, must be paid by Julius Malema and the EFF, said the official opposition party of South Africa.
A statement from John Steenhuisen the Chief Whip of the DA said the party can no longer pardon the EFF for disrupting Parliament. It thus, instructs that “Parliament’s clean-up bill must be sent straight to Julius Malema.”
Therein, Steenhuisen related that the DA will write to the Speaker of Parliament, Baleka Mbete, and its Secretary, Gengezi Mgidlana, to request that they publicize Parliament’s clean-up and repair costs following the EFF’s violence and destruction on the precinct.

“We will also demand that the bill not be paid by the public, through Parliament and its budget, but by Julius Malema and the EFF.
The EFF’s violence and destruction yesterday is not an acceptable form of holding Zuma accountable. It only undermined the integrity of Parliament, and was an assault on our Constitution and the principles which underpin it.
Their conduct also demonstrated that they are prepared to use violence to get their way and clearly are not a party that can be trusted by South Africans to take our country forward again,” Steenhuisen stated.
Meanwhile, BuzzSouthAfrica learnt that Parliament laid charges of damage to property following the removal of the EFF from Parliament. And, that the Western Cape police is currently investigating a case of malicious damage to property.
A statement from the speaker’s office said:
Following the removal of the members from the House, a crowd of members of the public from the gallery forced their way through the corridors. Violent scenes followed, resulting in incidents of assault on Protection Services staff and damage to property…

The DA however, said they will continue to hold President Zuma accountable for his criminal conduct using the mechanisms of the Constitution and the law.
“We also call on SA to vote out corrupt leaders like Jacob Zuma and hold the ANC accountable for defending and protecting him for this long,” DA charged.
