South Africa sends EFF Leader Malema back to the Pan African Parliament

Julius Malema
EFF leader Julius Malema will be on the South Africa's delegation to the Pan African Parliament (PAP) when the parliament reconvenes in October 2019. This was announced on Thursday by the Speaker of South Africa’s National Assembly, Thandi Modise who will also be on the delegation to PAP. The other members are Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces Amos Masondo, ANC chief whip Pemmy Majodina, and DA MP Richard Majola. They will be sworn in at the October session of PAP in Midrant, South Africa.

African Parliamentary News recalls that both Julius Malema and Speaker Thandi Modise were among South Africa’s delegation that were sworn in as members of the continental parliament in May 2018. But their tenure expired as a result of South Africa’s last May 2019 election.

Under the Protocol establishing PAP, the tenure of a member of PAP runs with tenure of the national parliament which elected or designated him or her.

For the Southern African Development Community Parliamentary Forum, the delegates are Speaker Thandi Modise, ANC MP Desmond Moela, ANC MP Tshitereke Matibe, DA MP Darren Bergman, EFF MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi, and a yet-to-be-elected chairperson of the Multiparty Women's Caucus, of which Kate Bilankulu is the ANC's nominee.
