- The EFF leader told former Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training Mduduzi Manana to admit that he's gay instead of hitting women
- Malema added he should come and show his strength at the EFF offices and be taught a lesson
- Malema also said it is questionable of South Africa's president to claim to want to end abuse against women and still sit next to Manana
Julius Malema told South Africa's former Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mduduzi Manana, to embrace his sexuality and not hide it from everyone.
Malema spoke at the Economic Freedom Fighters' Women's Day celebrations in KwaZulu-Natal when he addressed Manana.
Manana was found guilty of assaulting 3 women after comments on his sexuality. He was sentenced to a year in prison as well as a R100 000 fine.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier on how Manana was granted R5,000 bail after admitting to striking Mandisa Duma at a Johannesburg nightspot over the weekend. He alleges that the woman called him "gay" to which he retaliated by slapping her.
According to a report by The Citizen, Malema added that Manana should show his strength at the EFF offices and be taught a lesson instead of hitting women.
The EFF leader also said it's not good of President Ramaphosa to claim that the government does everything in its power to end gender-based violence but sit next to Manana the next day.
