Slurs, Fists and a Pinky Finger - South African Parliament Chaos

President Cyril Ramaphosa was supposed to be answering questions in the National Assembly, but MPs had other ideas. Economic Freedom Fighters MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi suggested that cabinet ministers should be given camera-free phones to save them from embarrasment - a reference to Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba's leaked sex tape. Gigaba responded by raising his pinky finger,  a gesture some interpreted to be an insult regarding Ndlozi's penis size. The Democratic Alliance and the EFF traded insults, with the terms looters and racists going back and forth and this then turned into a scuffle between Andries Tlouamma, parliamentary leader of the Agang party, and EFF MP Nazeer Paulsen.
