ANC MP Boy Mamabola evidently decided to take a jab at Julius Malema after being humiliated by the party during the State of the Nation Address.

The politician had been mocked over his outfit during the heated arguments that took place during the occasion.

Mamabola rose on a point of order during EFF leader Julius Malema's response to President Cyril Ramaphosa's speech.

Mamabola had demanded Malema addresses the accusation that he abuses his wife. However, Malema had been adamant he would not answer the question:

"No one is going to tell me what to do at what time. I'm in charge."

The Red Beret leader refused to answer invited some outcry from Members of Parliament, with Malema eventually referring to those present as 'fools'.

This invited further outcry, with MPs continuing to raise orders in a similar manner to what the EFF had done during the SONA.

Later in his address, Malema denied the allegations claiming instead that he had intel implicating President Cyril Ramaphosa in abusing his wife.

After refusing to withdraw the statement, Julius Malema and the EFF MPs left the house with the leader saying that those present couldn't handle the truth.
