The EFF walked out during Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s mid-term budget speech yesterday.
The party said Gigaba was the biggest enabler of state capture and that he was a Gupta stooge.
“We decided to raise an urgent motion in parliament that Malusi Gigaba must be prevented from delivering the medium-term budget policy statement because of all the people that are involved in state capture,” Shivambu said, speaking to reporters outside the steps of parliament following a walkout by his party.
“Gigaba has been the route through which the Guptas have captured Eskom, Transnet, Denel and all the major state-owned companies. He is continuing on the same trend, so to sit there and legitimise him and treat him as if he is a legitimate minister of finance [is] collaboration in crime,” said Shivambu.
