In January, Malema made a similar threat. National Assembly speaker Thandi Modise and National Council of Provinces (NCOP) chairperson Amos Masondo responded by saying his utterance was irresponsible and showed Malema’s lack of understanding of his duty as a public servant.
“When Cyril starts, we start. That’s how it’s going to roll. When he starts speaking, we are speaking about Pravin going. We are not going to be ruled here by Pravin, it must come to an end,” Malema said on Sunday.
ATM's no confidence motion
The African Transformation Movement (ATM) is of the view that President Ramaphosa has, on numerous occasions, failed to listen to and implement ideas contributed by other parties for the betterment of the poor.
During the party’s press conference last week, ATM leader Vuyo Zungula said South Africans have realised that the country, under Ramaphosa, “has been on a slippery slope”.
Malema said the EFF “will not support ATM’s motion of no confidence” as “they didn’t even speak to us” about it.
