Julius Malema denies at the South African parliament that he abuses his wife though the allegation to denial and response to the allegation by an ANC member of parliament came a bit late.
Malema is a very respected member of the parliament without any doubt, however rumours say he abuses his wife.
ANC MP Boy Mamabolo had risen during the EFF leader’s address and demanded that Malema addresses allegations that he abuses his wife.
Malema had answered the question in his own time, creating an uproar amongst those who insisted on a prompt response.
Saying Ramaphosa had been abusive towards his late wife ( something the EFF leader claims ex-president Jacob Zuma is aware of).
The EFF itself has applauded its leader for a ‘true triumph of accountability’ after he responded under oath and vowed he’d never laid a hand on his wife.

Responding under oath or not, it doesn’t prove that Malema doesn’t abuse his wife, because when he does it there is no one to witness it. It often said what is done behind closed doors can never be seen by an outside person.
However, does the Government expect women to feel safe in the society its leaders and lawmakers such as President Ramaphosa and Malema are being alleged of women abuse?
