SA Parly Speaker Slammed For Bias After Calling Malema "Cockcroach"

United Democratic Movement leader, Bantu Holomisa, thinks Speaker of the South African Parliament Baleka Mbete has made things worse in legislature’s relationships with her cockroach remarks over the weekend directed at EFF’s Julius Malema.

This follows Mbete’s address at a North West ANC congress at the weekend, where she reportedly referred to Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, as a cockroach.

Interviewed on SAFm’s AM Live, Holomisa says it’s unfortunate Mbete made those remarks, which reinforces their argument that she’s very biased.

Mbete is the Chairperson of the ruling African National Congress (ANC)

Meanwhile, political analyst, Somadoda Fikeni, says over the years South Africa has seen the weakening of parties, both ANC and opposition, as institutions, leading to the rise of individuals and personalisation of politics
