Julius #Malema and his EFF group have disrupted the opening of #SouthAfrica's parliament, as they did last year.

South African President Jacob #Zuma is delivering his annual State of the Nation address, amidst growing discontent about the financing of improvements to his private residence in Nkandla, the country's economic woes and a perception that the government is not tackling corruption.

South Africa's parliament is not alone in hosting such confrontations. Here's a look at parliamentary brawls around the world - from throwing eggs to throwing fists.

Watch:

‪#‎Kenya‬ has until the end of Thursday to prove to the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) it is tackling cheating in ‪#‎athletics‬, the BBC has learned.

It comes after a spate of positive drugs tests among the country's athletes and fresh allegations of corruption.

It is thought unlikely Kenya will be able to provide the assurances Wada is seeking and the country could be placed on a 'watch-list' of nations at risk of being in breach of the agency's code.

The east African country, whose athletes are dominant in distance running, would then be given two months to bring in new legislation and funding, or automatically be declared non-compliant with Wada.

That could mean a possible ban from the Olympics, which take place later this year in Brazil, and other major events.
