Choas in the Free State Legislature



Chaos broke out during the sitting of the Free State Legislature when the speaker of the house, Mamaki Qabathe, order EFF MPL Jacob Tshabalala to leave the house.

Speaker Qabathe ordered Tshabalala to leave the house because he was not dressed accordingly to the dressing code of the house. “This is an honourable house, you are an honourable member of the house and you will dress accordingly in this house,” she said.

Choas erupted and Tshabalala refused to leave. After the house was adjourned for five minutes marshals of the legislature negotiated with Tshabala until he left.
