- Malema said he felt sorry about the situation and apologised
Julius Malema has apologised to Inkosi Mandlenkosi Mahlalela of the Mlambo tribal authority after Mahlalela reportedly received a "sick" cow from the EFF.
Speaking at the EFF's sixth birthday celebrations, Malema promised that Mahlalela would be given five "fresh" cows.
"Before I leave here we will bring five fresh cattle as a way of apologising because what happened shows disrespect to our traditional leaders," the EFF leader said.
Mahlalela is based in Mbuzini, which borders Mozambique and eSwatini, Briefly.co.za has gathered. During his speech, Malema said that he had heard that Mahlalela received sick cattle on social media and that he felt "sorry" about the situation.
This was not the only issue Malema touched on in his remarks, however. He also came out in defence of Busisiwe Mkhwebane once again, warning Cyril Ramaphosa that he should respect the Public Protector's office.
He also thanked the EFF's supporters for voting for the "most progressive party" and praised the EFF as a "party with no white advisers", according to Sowetan Live.
Malema also said that the EFF was not scared of anyone, as he believed that nobody could harm the Red Berets.
