Boy Mamabolo adamant he has proof of abuse, Mantoa Malema to sue for R1-million

RELATED: 'Toddler (Boy) Mamabolo is behaving like a toddler who is at nursery school'

Mantoa Malema, the wife of Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader Julius Malema, is suing African National Congress (ANC) parliamentarian Boy Mamabolo for R1 million if he does not retract his statement that her husband is abusing her.

On Tuesday, the State of the Nation Address (Sona) degenerated into chaotic scenes when Mamabolo accused Julius Malema of beating his wife and wanted him to confirm that.

Clement Manyathela speaks to EFF spokesperson Vuyani Pambo about Mantoa's letter.

She has taken a stand and what is most important from that letter is that she does not need his help and if there was something like that she would have gone to the police.

What is also important is that Boy Mamabolo was trying to score a cheap political point and put a cloud over a family that is happy.

Vuyani Pambo, Spokesperson - EFF

She has taken a bold step and we think it is exemplary and we support her.

In a Twitter post, Boy Mamabolo says he will not retract his statement.

Meanwhile, the ANC says it is looking into the conduct of its members regarding the chaos that erupted on Tuesday.

We cannot allow gender-based violence to be trivialised in that manner. We expect all Members of Parliament, whom we have deployed, to be responsible and make statements that are fit in the construction of the society we want.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC
