EFF Vow to Stop Gordhan from Speaking in South African Parliament

National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise has slammed the Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) behaviour toward Pravin Gordhan when he delivered his department's budget vote speech in Parliament. The party called the Public Enterprises Minister a "constitutional delinquent" and vowed to continue to prevent him from speaking in Parliament. This comes after Gordhan accused the EFF of leading a campaign against him and that they are major players in attempts to keep alive the "lie" of the alleged South African Revenue Service "rogue unit".
