Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has apologised to President Cyril Ramaphosa regarding the gender-based violence comments he made in Parliament. Malema’s apology follows that of President Ramaphosa during his reply to the SONA debate.

The President apologised to Malema, his wife Mantoa Matlala and family for the humiliation he suffered after the claims by ANC MP Boy Mamabolo, that he abused his wife. In a statement, Malema says after Ramaphosa’s apology he had a long discussion with his wife.

They then decided to accept it and subsequently apologise themselves to the President.
