CIC of the EFF, Julius Malema, has received many thumbs-up from South African Twitter users who commended him on his calm demeanour after being shoved by a female MP at the Pan African Parliament.
Heading online, Malema finally broke his silence on the matter and made it known to his followers that he himself did not know what to make of the female delegate's behaviour. He shared a shrugging emoji above a clip of the drama unfolding and the woman getting physical with him.
Many of his followers subsequently took to the comment section of the post to praise Malema for not retaliating and keeping his calm during what was obviously a provocative moment.
"I respect the calmness in you when being pushed like that, a person who can scream GBV if this situation was reversed. A leader and king is someone who can tame a beast within himself. You're a king."
"Such behaviour from women needs to be looked at and not be considered normal coz 'some' males don’t have the calmness and intelligence that CIC has... action against such women is needed."
Briefly News earlier reported that chaos erupted again at the Pan African Parliament as resistance to the rotational system continues. Once again, EFF leader Julius Malema was at the centre of controversy.
A video has gone viral on social media platforms showing Malema being violently shoved by a female delegate. A person can be heard in the background of the video, which was recorded in someone's house.
They can be heard saying "Malema, shame" followed by "gender-based violence". Malema did not retaliate against the aggressive behaviour of the delegate.
