Yesterday members of South Africa's Parliament disrupted the annual state of the nation address by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa to protest the presence of apartheid-era President F.W. De Klerk.

South Africa's far-left Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) legislators have protested inside Parliament, forcing President Cyril Ramaphosa to abandon his annual state of the nation address for a while.

Speaker Thandi Modise on Thursday temporarily suspended proceedings, telling the EFF leaders: "When you think you have unlimited freedom of speech to infringe on the rights of others, that is a disruption."

The EFF demanded FW De Klerk, South Africa's last apartheid-era president, be ejected from Parliament, accusing him of being "unrepentant".
