Cape Town – A member of the Cape Chamber of Commercetried to emulate the EFF's behaviour in Parliament during a debate betweenJulius Malema and scenario planner Clem Sunter on Friday night.


Malema started his address someone shouted from thefloor "point of order".

The firebrand leader laughed and replied "you notrecognised" to loud claps and cheers from those attending the dinner anddebate held at the Southern Sun, Cape Sun Hotel, in Cape Town.

Some also heckled Malema as he spoke about EFF policieson land expropriation, nationalisation and the economy.

While the EFF leader shared his views about state-ownedentities, some shouted "SAA" and "out of order".

However, this did not deter Malema who continued with hisaddress.

"We need a corrupt-free government which will deploythe best people to run state-owned institutions, not friends," he said.

The Malema, Sunter debate was called "Rumble in theUrban Jungle".

In a description of the event the Cape Chamber said ithad organised the debate because it felt it was essential for business to cometo terms with the different scenarios for the future and how they could affectboth business opportunities and job creation.

"Both these men have very strong views on the futureof South Africa and its faltering economy, so this is an interesting andexciting exchange you don’t want to miss.

"It will be a fair debate with no punches pulled andas little ducking and diving as possible," it said.

Sunter spoke about issues affecting South Africa anddifferent scenarios the country could face.

Flags the country needed to watch, he said, were:corruption, the roll-out of infrastructure, pockets of influence which the restof the country could learn from and making sure small businesses were able tothrive.

He said a million new businesses were needed to createfive million jobs.

Each debater had 20 minutes to present his ideas.

At the end of his presentation, Malema addressed thosewho heckled him, saying he was fine with them shouting but "I don't raisecomfortable things".

"I express myself anywhere, free, without any fear.I'm here to articulate EFF policy, like it or not."

Malema was well received at the Cape Chamber. Before thedebate people lined up to meet the outspoken politician and take a photo withhim.
