Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema could be in trouble to explain his derogatory comments made in the Parliament on Wednesday.
In the heat of the verbal exchanges in parliament, Julius Malema made another gaffe which could earn him a legal rigor, if the suit goes against him.
Malema met a rough day after making a controversial statement in parliament Malema had stated: “the white man must not speak in the house”, to the immediate disapproval of Agang MPs.
It would appear those in positions of authority in the country are gradually losing grip of the leadership situation. After a fractious session in the parliament , a fierce row broke out initially between EFF and DA members. The parties exchanged chats of “pay back the money” (directed towards Floyd Shivambu and an alleged VBS connection) and “racists”, as Julius Malema also made his voice heard.
DA MP John Steenhuisen has been encouraged to sue EFF leader Julius Malema over the rape allegations he made against him in parliament on Tuesday during President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Q&A.
It was reported that a fight broke out in parliament between DA and EFF MPs after the red berets interrupted Steenhuisen’s point of order.
The EFF leader called Steenhuisen a “racist, young white man” and also claimed he had been “accused of rape”.
While DA MPs responded to Malema by chanting “pay back the money”, EFF MPs also stood up and called DA MPs “racists”. This led to a scuffle that saw the session took a break.
I’m actually finding this “Steenhuisen rape” allegation very curious, I can’t catch a whiff of it anywhere. Nothing asides from his affair.. even went to page 4 of the search. Also from what I’ve seen and read from izolo it doesn’t seem like Malema had to retract that comment🧐

Steenhuisen told his followers that the reason the rape allegation had not been reported on was because it was a “blatant lie”. In fact, according to Steenhuisen, the EFF leader was not made to retract his comment and “racist” tirade because presiding officers are apparently scared of Malema.
