ANC MP Boy Mamabolo defended Cyril Ramaphosa and used his comment to blame EFF leader Julius Malema of physically abusing his wife, Mantwa.

After trying to proceed with his accusations, Malema disproved the claims, before exiting parliament with EFF members.

“No, I don’t beat up my wife. But can you answer the question, Mr. President? Ramaphosa has a history of beating up his late wife. I don’t have a history of abusing women, I have a history of love. President Zuma can confirm that Ramaphosa’s wife used to complain to him about Cyril’s behavior”.

“When I spoke here during the Sona debate last year, anyone who has never beaten his wife in the past 25 years must raise his hand and I said I can do that because I have no history of such things,” said Malema.

Malema vowed to sue Mamabolo for R1m because Mamabolo restated the accusations against him out of the parliament.

Social media, including veteran radio personality Redi Tlhabi, shared their perspectives.
