Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema says his opposition party intends on removing Cyril Ramaphosa as President and the ANC from the government saying the EFF, by all means, wants to give Ramaphosa a hard time.
"We are not going to give Ramahosa roses... we are going to give him hell. He must know that and his supporters must know that. We are not controlled by Whites or Ruperts but we are controlled by you the members of the EFF who gave us the mandate to go to Parliament and show them who we are. If you voted for us to be sweethearts with Ramaphosa, we won't entertain that," Malema said to loud cheers.
Malema was addressing supporters outside the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, following hearings into the Public Protector's battle with Public Enterprise Minister Pravin Gordhan over the so-called Sars rogue unit.
While judgement on the matter has been reserved to allow Judge Sulet Potterill time to go through the heads of arguments, Malema said his party would not be perturbed by the outcome of the court.
He insisted that the EFF had been in court to solely protect the office of the Public Protector and was not there to defend advocate Busiswe Mkhwebane.
"That's why we welcomed the decision of the Constitutional Court on Mkhwebane because warned about that case a long time ago. We said to her we think you have gone overboard and are dangerous. We told her," Malema said but also pointed that disagreeing with Mkhwebane in one case doesn't necessarily mean that they would not support her on other matters they deem fit.
