There was commotion in the House when members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) were expelled after trying to stop President Zuma  from addressing the gathering.

According to a BBC report the speaker of the House ordered the ejection of the people who were being disruptive.

Guards surrounded the EFF MPs who were dressed in their trademark red boiler suits.

Objects, including bottles of water and a hard hat, were thrown as the guards tried to wrestle the MPs out of the chamber.

The EFF has denounced Mr Zuma as an "illegitimate" ruler who should step down.

In March, a court ruled Mr. Zuma violated the constitution by failing to pay back public money used on his mansion.

South Africa's highest court, the Constitutional Court, ruled that Mr Zuma had violated the constitution when he failed to repay government money used to upgrade his private home in the rural area of Nkandla.
