Proceedings were disrupted for almost 30 minutes with the house wrangling over the National Assembly rules.
Following the endless points of orders raised by EFF MPs, Speaker Baleka Mbete explained that the purpose of the sitting is exclusively for the delivery of the State of the Nation Address.
EFF members objected but were soon ordered to leave National Assembly chambers.
COPE Leader, Mosiuoa Lekota, was also dismissed from the chamber after he accused the president of violating the Constitution.
Speaking on Morning live at the post ZONA briefing, Zuma took a swipe at the disruptive behaviour, saying that no parties have a right to infringed on the rights of others to hear him deliver his address.
“Other parties and other individuals have rights as well. It is not a good thing that when Parliament meets, you disrupt deliberately…I think people must see other parties and leaders for what they are…I think it is almost becoming a culture and it is a wrong culture. I think it must be seen for what it is and it must be dealt with.”
