EFF’s application challenging contempt of Parliament ruling dismissed [SOUND]

# The Western Cape High Court has dismissed the EFF’s application to invalidate the National Assembly rules that saw the legislative body take action against six party members. Last year, the members, including leader Julius Malema and deputy president Floyd Shivambu, stormed the stage while president Cyril Ramaphosa delivered the State of the Nation Address. They were found guilty of contempt of Parliament and suspended for 30 days with no pay. The EFF’s spokesperson, Leigh-Ann Mathys, says they will appeal this ruling:
