#PeoplesInauguration: Malema warns Ramaphosa and Cabinet to respect Constitution

EFF leader Julius Malema

EFF leader Julius Malema has warned Cyril Ramaphosa that he and his Cabinet should respect the Constitution and that no one is above the law.

Malema was speaking at the sidelines of the President-elect Cyril Ramaphosa’s inauguration at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.

In what could be described as a message for Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan who on Friday was found by the public protector to have violated the Constitution when he approved the early retirement of former acting SARS commissioner Ivan Pillay.

Gordhan said he would challenge the public protector’s finding.

The EFF has been calling for Gordhan to be held accountable for his involvement in awarding the early retirement. It has also accused him of acting as if he is above the law.
