Reading Time: < 1 minute

Agang SA MP, Andries Tlouamma and EFF’s Mogamad Nazier Paulsen have been involved in a scuffle during a seating in the National Assembly on Tuesday.

The Question and Answer session of President Cyril Ramaphosa was temporarily interrupted and parliamentary Protection Services had to be summoned.

As Economic Freedom Fighters Chief Whip, Floyd Shivambu was about to raise a question, Agang’s  Andries Tlouamma rose on a point of order. Addressing  Chair Thoko Didiza, Tloumma says  “We can’t have people saying whites can’t speak in this House….don’t point at me…never never, f**k-off!”

As he rose on his point of order, he seems to be pointing at someone on the EFF bench. EFF member, Mogamad Nazier Paulsen is then seen rushing towards Tloumma and the two are seen grabbing each other by the necks in a scuffle.

During the scuffle, one could hear a voice in background saying, “No no no, they can’t intimidate us. We have a democratic right to be here.”
