South Africa would be left with no country if Jacob Zuma was allowed to continue as president – and he must go‚ Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema told Parliament on Tuesday.

“You are not a legitimate president…bye bye‚” Malema said to Zuma.

Speaking during the debate on the President’s state of the nation address‚ the EFF leader said South Africa had been relegated to a junk status country due to the actions of one man “who blames everything on the global economy".

“South Africa‚ we stand here bound by the Constitution‚ to call for the removal of Zuma as President of South Africa. He caused damage.

“Zuma is a morally compromised human being. In our previous life‚ we accepted lies about you‚ Mr Zuma‚” Malema added.

He repeated his apology to former President Thabo Mbeki for helping to remove him from office.

“We apologise to Mbeki for standing behind Zuma. We tell President Mbeki that we were misled by this man (Zuma).

“We apologise to President Mbeki for ruining his legacy. At least he knew what he stood for unlike him (Zuma).”

EFF members filed out of Parliament when Malema finished his speech.
