Julius Malema is one of the most prominent politicians in Mzansi and he has the unwavering support of a gorgeous wife. The EFF leader and his wifey celebrated five years of marriage on 27 December, but it's not the first time their relationship gave SA the feels.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported Julius Malema had Mzansi swooning when he showed off his softer side with a beautiful message he penned to his wife on their fifth wedding anniversary.
The EFF leader gushed about his amazing spouse and it warmed hearts on social media. In honour of their anniversary and everlasting love, we took a look at five times Juju and Mantwa Matlala were a powerhouse couple.
