Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has requested National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete to convene an urgent meeting with party leaders to look at the programme of Parliament before the State-of-the-Nation-Address.

This comes after the EFF won a Constitutional Court case against President Jacob Zuma in relation to his fitness to hold office.

The SABC has reliably learnt that there’s a strong push for Zuma not to address the nation as expected next week.

In a letter to the Speaker, the EFF says establishing the suitability of Zuma to continue in the highest office is more urgent now than the delivery of the SONA.

The party also says Zuma should not be allowed to deliver the SONA.
