Jacob Zuma: “Each time when I come here, I am abused by members of your Parliament”

Jacob Zuma raises his concerns about how members of Parliament treat him saying, “Each time when I come here, I am abused, by members of your Parliament. Because instead of answering questions, I sit here being called a criminal, a thief. I think this house must do something about it because you are going to make it very difficult for me to fulfill my constitutional obligation. I think if I don’t raise the matter, Chair, I think I will be failing in my duty.

I don’t think I should always come here to face people who are not respecting the house, in my views and I have to sit here and wait for the kind of discussions. Your house must do something, if this house is not interested in me answering questions, you must say so then don’t call me.”
