Mayhem in South African Parliament

Matthew Klynsmith By Monday, 17 November 2014 10:14 AM EST Current | Bio | Archive

The South African National Assembly Speaker, Baleka Mbete lost control of parliament once again on Thursday. The reason for the mayhem was her decision not to hold President Jacob Zuma responsible for the massive over spending at his private home ‘Nkandla’.

Opposition parties objected to this decision saying that Mbete is bias due to her repeatedly ruling in favor of the ANC — Africa National Congress. When Members of parliament (MPs) objected to her decision, Mbete would not recognize their objection. This aggravated the opposition parties to the point where they began to chant “You must go!”— protesting that Mbete was not fit to run the House of Parliament objectively.

Mbete called in riot police to clear the chamber when MPs became disruptive and refused to leave.

Mysteriously the parliamentary channels live feed of the ensuing pandemonium was cut soon after the riot police were called in. Mbete has denied giving the order for the live feed to be cut and has ordered an investigation into the matter.

With disruptive behavior becoming almost regular in the house of parliament, one can feel now more than ever the absence of the dignified and respected late Nelson Mandela.
