When you see the name Julius Malema in headlines, it is normally not a very pleasant thing. However, the EFF leader has a soft side, especially for his wife Mrs Mantwa Matlala Malema.
Mantwa Matlala Malema is somewhat a mystery to the public but Julias never hesitates to openly admit his love for his wife. He refers to her as the EFF leader’s “management”.
Seen as we do not know much about the woman who softens the heart of Juju, here are five facts on Mantwa Matlala Malema:
1. She’s is the woman behind Juju’s slimmer physique
Juju is hard in the political world but when it comes to his family, he is soft. His weight-loss was driven by his most prized possestions, his family. His wife was his biggest supporter and helped push him to give up sugar. He has also given up alcohol in order to “act more like a father”.
2. Juju worships the ground that Mantwa walks on
As he is mad about her, she is equally mad about him. The couple are crazy for one another and you can find many timnes where Juju talks so passionately about his wife.
3. She keeps her life tidy and out of the public eye on purpose
We hardly know anything about her and that is because that is exactly how she wants it. Being in the public eye, especially with a husband like Juju, she has done an exceptional job at staying out of the media. It says a lot about her character, in a good way of course.
4. Despite being a woman of morals, Mantwa can also get down
She apparently had a blast at her brial shower in 2014. City Press claim there was a pretty wild bridal shower for Juju’s life partner.
It was held at the Saxon Hotel in Sandton. An anonymous source told the publication that the night was p0retty wild.
“There were about 15 ladies at the event. They were entertained by male strippers prancing up and down and stripping to the point of being almost naked.”
“Prized Champagne was flowing and good fun was had by all. Obviously, she received many gifts from the friends.”
5. Rumour has it that Mrs Malema makes Juju go to the movies
She does not take no for an answer and has some pretty persuasive ways. Malema has allegedly complained that he doesn’t want to watch movies, dominated by white people he “doesn’t understand”.
When he was on SABC’s Real Talk with Anele, Juju stated that his wife forces him to go with her to watch movies at the cinema. She has him wrapped around her finger for sure.
