Mampara of the Week: Mervyn Dirks

03 December 2017 - 00:00 By HOGARTH

This week, ANC MP Mervyn Dirks proved just why he does not belong in our parliamentary chamber, which is supposed to be safe and sacrosanct, especially for women.
While MPs were passing adjustments to the budget, Dirks threatened to assault a female fellow ANC MP, and threw vile signals at the opposition with his middle finger.
When other MPs outed him, this loser called them all sorts of unprintable profanities before he was ejected from the chamber. Dirks is the same guy who tried his best but failed to disrupt this week's debate on state capture.
Mervpara Dirks has no place in our parliament and should instead be deployed as the chief bartender at the Saxonwold Shebeen, where he should feel right at home.
